UGGs Are More Popular Than iPad, Kindle & Barbie

The United States Justice Department Sues Apple For Fixing eBook Prices!

Ameriva vs. apple

It's on!

The U.S. Justice Department thinks Apple went a step too far by conspiring with publishers to create fixed eBook prices and has filed an antitrust lawsuit against the company to teach it a lesson in fairness.

Even though some publishers have already settled, the company behind the iPad is disputing the charges by arguing that pricing agreements with publishers only enhanced competition in a market dominated by Amazon.

Filed under: Tech Talk

amazon-versus-apple.jpg

We soon find out!

Amazon is reportedly prepared to go head-to-head with Apple this fall by debuting their new Android-powered tablet computer at the same time Mac releases its third-generation iPad. They surely aren't the first to try and take a piece of Apple's tablet pie, but they might be the first with a fighting chance to succeed.

The world's largest online retailer is reportedly producing more than a million tablet computers to debut in October. The tablet will have a 9-inch screen, have a built-in Kindle e-reader and the "ability to deliver digital media from books to music."

Oooh! Sounds pretty sweet to us! Plus, we admire Amazon's moxy! First an App store, then the Cloud, now this! They're coming for you, Apple! Whatcha going to do to fend them off?!

E-Books Outselling Actual Paper Books

Filed under: Tech TalkSad Sad

Sadsies.

There's nothing like the smell of a new book.

Unfortunately, going to a book store and picking up a brand new book and breaking it in will be something of the past.

Amazon has announced that their e-books are outselling their actual books.

"For every 100 traditional print volumes sold last month, Amazon sold 105 e-books," the company said.

And their e-reader, the Kindle, is blowing up! Since it's release, it's sold more than 950,000 e-book titles in just four short years. The device itself has sold more copies than the sales of hardcover and paperbooks COMBINED!!

Wowsa!!

The future is here, you guys. One good thing we can see coming from this is that less paper will be used, making for less waste.

There's nothing like a traditional paper book though.

Which do you prefer? Actual book or e-book?
