Amazon Continues Domain Name Collecting with KindleWave.com

Just a couple of days ago, the folks at Amazon took it upon themselves to scoop up the domain name KindleScribe.com - this of course fueling speculation that the upcoming Kindle e-reader would at last be named. This and KindleScribes.com were registered on August 20 2011, and along with their last registration of a domain, KindleAir.com, all point toward a future tablet name OR some defensively purchased names just in case someone wanted to capitalize on the fact that Air, Scribe, and Wave are associated very closely at the moment with tablet computers.

Amazon cracks down on e-book publishers using private label rights

Amazon has started to crack down on the publishing of e-books that use the private label rights or PLR.

Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Texas Instruments Collaboration Promised for Fall Rollout

Before we begin, note that we said this same thing back in June on the first. It appears that Texas Instruments will be first in efforts to graphically represent their support for Android's newest operating system, Android Ice Cream Sandwich, a system Google promises will meld the handset version and the tablet version of the Android mobile OS together with two layers of lovely chocolate sandwich bits. What Texas Instruments has done today is show one frame of a slideshow (shown below) to publishers that its representatives are calling a promotional image that Texas Instruments will use for events "in the fall." This more than likely means that Ice Cream Sandwich will indeed be released before the end of the year and that we'll see some powerful new chipsets coming out with TI before 2012 arrives as well.
