Nook Video aims to jab Netflix and Amazon all at once

If you were looking for another reason to pick up a new Nook tablet - revealed earlier today - you'll find it in Barnes & Noble's announcement of Nook Video, a streaming service they're set to release to fight Netflix and Amazon's efforts in the video universe. While Amazon does indeed have a tablet competitor for the Nook line in their own Kindle Fire HD (and the rest), they don't have the same key-word that Barnes & Noble is coming up with: UltraViolet - and the same, basically, goes for Netflix. With HBO, Sony Pictures, Walt Disney Studios, Warner Bros, and Starz already signing up for the Nook Video team, there very well could be some clout to the book company's claims.

Barnes & Noble adds maps to Nook with skobbler

Barnes & Noble adds maps to Nook with skobbler

Barnes & Noble’s Nook tablets are limited in their mapping abilities, currently relying on Google's web interface to access any kind of maps. That’s set to change today, as the company has announced a partnership with skobbler that will see the Nook tablets gain the ability to natively search and view maps.
