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’s New Kindle Commercial Jabs At iPad Again

Amazon has just released a new Kindle commercial full of happy indie music, hip young folks in coffee shops, frolicking in parks, jaunting in the city, and all done in lots and lots of sunshine.

Apple’s New App Store Rules Impact Amazon’s Kindle App

Apple's new app store subscription plan, specifying that Apple will take a 30% cut of all content sold within apps, will also affect Amazon's Kindle app when used on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. It will also impact other booksellers selling through apps on Apple products. Publishers and content sellers have to remove any links within their apps to outside-the-App Store purchasing options.
