How dominatrix use Amazon wish lists for fetish/financial domination. It's not just for buying whips (but there is that, too). 
Shopping fetishes take on a whole new meaning when dominatrixes and their subs turn to Amazon, and gift-buying provides an expression of desire -- as well as punishment.

Amazon Appstore is a treat for a developer. It gives several exclusive services which other app stores like google play or i-tunes don't.

I agree that's very cool. Apologies for the shameless promotion but have you checked out the one click 'Do It' we have on the EasilyDo iOS and iPhone App. It allows you automate your tasks in 1-click!

The $20 increase to Amazon Prime is probably the tip of the iceberg.
Consumers may need to get ready for rate increases every few years as Amazon races to add services and programming to justify the hikes. Read this article by Donna Tam on CNET News.

Great article.  I think it's a classic bundling play:  as they add in more and more services (shipping, streaming video, music) it'll be harder to nail down the price of any one input.

Amazon launched as a bookstore, but we quickly saw that it's ambitions were larger.  With AWS and the streaming movie service I think we're seeing that their ambitions are larger than simply being an all-encompassing online retailer as well.

OOOOooooo, Area 01 for Google. Nice. Wonder what it could be, perhaps a more finished product for the Loom project.

It's the apps that set the Galaxy Gear apart from other smart watches. That and the fact that it comes in a delightful champagne-toned gold metal body with a cream strap. #swoon

It would be a plus if water resistance. Whether an extension for our phones/tablets or standalone device we would probably treat our smart watches in the same fashion as we do with our smart phones. I still think the price tag is to much though. But its esthetically pleasing.
