DEAL: HP TouchPad Is Available For $50 Less

In the current run in the dominating tablet industry, it is really hard to keep up. I reckon HP has realized this fact pretty quickly.

HP recently released its HP touchpad, a tablet computer which featured HP’s WebOS 3.0 operating system. Unfortunately, contrary to what HP had hoped, the device had not been able to garner a lot of success because of its competitors such as the iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom.

Amazon Puts A Halt To Nintendo 3DS Shipments

It looks like Amazon is taking user reviews and consumer comments very seriously in that it has decided to stop selling the Nintendo 3DS. The real reason why Amazon decided to stop shipping its 3DS portables remains a mystery, but they claim that they are working to fix it.

When the game console first came out, there were many complaints about the structure of the unit, claiming that the screen would easily get scratched due to not having enough of a cushion when it was closed.

Apple Might Acquire Hulu Soon

With an impressive sale of iPads, iPhones and other iDevices, Apple has generated a huge stack of money around $72.6 billion. With such a huge amount of money, the only thing which comes in mind of people is, “What are they going to do with all this money???”

They cannot just sit back and relax on this money, the only thing that a good company would do is INVEST. They might invest it on a new idea or product, or they might buy a company. Word is that they might acquire the Online Video Streaming Website ‘HULU’ and add Online Video Services to Apple customers. With just a price tag of $2 billion on Hulu, it is not such a risk for Apple

Apple Barely Keeps Up With The Demand For iPad2

Apple has just recently released iPad2 and Apple fans have rushed to the Apple Stores so unexpectedly that now Apple can barely keep up with the demand for iPad2.

Tim Cook, Chief Operating Officer at Apple said, “Sales of the iPad 2 have absolutely been a frenzy. As we stepped into July, we have been able to increase the supply further, and some SKUs in some countries are at a supply-demand balance. We believe that some people chose to buy an iPad over a Mac in the quarter, but we believe that even more people chose to bought an iPad over a Windows PC.”

California Signs “Amazon Tax”, Amazon Threatens To Cut Ties

California has just signed the Amazon Tax, a tax that will allow it to collect sales tax from online transactions. In the last court battle regarding taxes, Amazon was backed by the US Supreme Court from the 1992 ruling, stating that companies cannot collect sales tax in states where they do not have a physical presence.

States are now looking to expand that definition to include Amazon affiliates who make money off commissions. Amazon had also said it would cut ties with its estimate 10,000 California affiliates if the bill was signed, and Jerry Brown signed it yesterday.

Apple Changes In-App Subscription Pricing

Apple has recently changed its guidelines on the pricing of In-App subscriptions through the App Store, but haven’t publicly commented on the recent change. The new changes include that there are no longer any requirements that a subscription be at the same price or less than it is offered outside an app, meaning that the app store can charge $10 for an app that costs $2 somewhere else.

Furthermore, there is no guideline about price, at all. App Store subscriptions were first introduced this past February, and the introduction of the service had opened the door to a wide range of in-app subscription services such as magazines and newspapers.

Game Emulators Yanked From Android Market

Game emulators are programs that are available for download through mobile, desktop, and laptop devices, that allow users to simulate game consoles and play games they enjoy without having to pay for the console. The player usually just plays the game through mouse and keyboard instead of controller, but one could easily configure a game controller by obtaining the right hardware and software.

A third party Android app developer by the name of Yong Zhang has recently had his popular game console emulators yanked out of the Android market. His entire selection of apps was removed without warning.

Sprint Offering $175 If You Switch Over

Sprint is now offering customers from AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon, $175 of store-credit to *business users who switch over to Sprint service and buy any Sprint phone. The credit was designed to “give customers a chance to try Sprint without having to worry about fees or charges for terminating their contracts with current carriers.”

This makes a lot of sense since most termination fees are close to $200 with wireless providers. This is also the perfect opportunity to those upset with either T-Mobile or AT&T. The $175 is given to those looking to buy a smartphone and a $50 credit is given to those looking to buy a low-end feature phone. Individual users will only get a $125 credit towards the purchase of a smartphone.

18 Year Old Killed From Craigslist Meetup

An innocent 18 year old from San Diego was killed after meeting “someone” on Craigslist to sell his computer for $600. Instead of an innocent meetup, three individuals showed up and murdered the 18 year old boy, stole his cash and cell phone. The three attackers are named Rashon Abernathy, Seandell Jones and Shaquille Jordan and each were charged as adults with murder and robbery. Each faces a maximum penalty of life in prison if convicted. San Diego Superior Court Judge Joseph Brannigan entered not-guilty pleas on their behalf and set the bail at $5 million for each of them.
