1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    A Silicon Valley analyst, named Tim Bajarin, claims to have insider info that Amazon's Android Tablets will come in 7-inch and 10-inch models during the Christmas holiday season this year, and will be sporting NVIDIA's newest Quad-Core Tegra processors. He also added that it looks like the "black and white E Ink-like display & color LCD" hybrid by Qualcomm and Pixel Qi, will not be ready until 2012 or even 2013. More than likely, Amazon will opt for a "Fringe Field Switching" LCD from Samsung with these first batches of Amazon Androids. It'll be interesting to see if his 'intel' turns out to be accurate.
