    Apple's Mobile based products

    start to freak everyone's else. It's not just about "me-too-product" anymore but it's rather "before Apple cornering the market". This is like U.S.A. vs. U.S.S.R. during the space race.

    Except instead of competing against USSR, US is competing against a backwards nation with no taste, lead by a sweaty monkey boy. =)

    What is Amazon Getting?

    The Big Shaft from Microsoft !!! As has been the fate of anyone who ever got into bed with Microsoft (just watch what'll happen to Yahoo). I feel bad for Amazon.

    I'm puzzled...

    I continue hearing the pundits say that there is absolutely no need for tablets, absolutely no market for tablets at all and that Apple is foolish to be bringing out the iPad tablet which is bound to flop. Yet, so many other companies are getting ready for the battle of the tablets. I can hardly wait to see if there really is a tablet market ready to be tapped.

    Hate to see this happen to Amazon

    Amazon should know better than dealing with MicroShaft.
    I like Kindle, it has its niche, but this is the end of Kindle dealing with this company

    You people are clueless

    This has no effect on the Kindle. Microsoft is licensing some technology, as is Amazon. Big deal, companies do this all the time. And usually because someone's tread on one person's patents.

    And note that Amazon is paying Microsoft for this, so apparently they are getting something bigger out of it than some Kindle patents.
