The expected price at launch for this subscription service is £9.99.  It appears that this service is targeted at people that can read more than 4 books a month.

Watching a film only takes approx. 2 hours so Netflix pricing their service in this range is understandable.  Reading a book takes most people quite a bit longer than 2 hours.  Surely Amazon have data to prove that, (if they didn't know already).

Amazon seem to be making quite a few bad decisions recently.  The changes that they've made to Amazon Prime being a good example.

I've just been reading Mary Meeker's 2014 presentation on the state of the web.  It's an excellent read.

Slides 132-136 in particular show how far behind the West is in regard to mobile payments/services.

Why are we having to wait so long to get this in the West?

Why are 'muted' posts no longer disappearing from my circles as they once did?

Google, Amazon have just released Cloud Player in the UK.  Do I wait for Google Music to become available in the UK or do I just go with Amazon now?

As with most things in life, nobody remembers those that came second!

Watch this and be amazed! I'm not going to spoil the surprise but this isn't just about extremely fast broadband.

Watch until the end, it's well worth it.

Is it worth starting a #BoycottMicrosoft campaign, or has that ship already sailed?

This is hilarious.  If you haven't got 14 minutes to spare then jump to the 10 minute mark.
