Amazon drive-thru grocery store project tipped

It's no secret that Amazon has grocery-based ambitions, with its AmazonFresh and Amazon Pantry services both being options (the former of the two has limited availability, however). That's not the end of its efforts, however, at least if recently surfaced sources are any indication.

Windows 10 on USB seen at Amazon, ships mid to late August

Confirming what we've suspected, Amazon has put up product pages for selling Windows 10, both Home and Pro, in a USB flash drive instead of the more traditional DVD installation media.

Amazon Cloud Drive mobile app launched perhaps prematurely

Amazon may have a booming business when it comes to enterprise cloud and remote computing services, but for consumer storage, Google and Dropbox, and sometimes even OneDrive, lead the race. Trying to catch up with the big players, Amazon has launched its own mobile app for its Cloud Drive, but that might be doing it more harm than good. It's not that the app is plagued with broken features. It's that there are very few features to speak of, earning many disappointed, even irate, reviews from mobile users.

Apple Watch finally gets a Casio calculator interface with Geek Watch

As soon as the Apple Watch was first revealed last September, there were jokes and comparisons made about similarities between it and the old school Casio calculator watch. Well, they don't all that much in common besides the shape, but the Casio did all of a sudden become the retro-chic alternative for hipsters too cool for Apple's new smartwatch. Anyway, skip forward to today, and now we can finally have both in one package: the classic interface of a $20 wrist calculator, and the package of a $400 mini computer.
