Search News

Amazon must have been looking @ the most successful business plan in recent years and thought 'hmm I want a bite of that Apple'.

Amazon have announced the imminent release of their New E-Book device that they are calling "Kindle" this will be a Wi-Fi sporting device that ties in very closley to the Amazon E-Book store, does that sound like a familiar industry dominating approach??

Best of luck to Amazon and I hope a competitor doesnt release an iReader too soon.

The Kindle is equipped with a Wi-Fi connection that taps into an Amazon e-book store, which users can access to purchase new electronic books--and Amazon has reportedly signed onto a deal with Sprint for EVDO access. Additionally, the device comes with a headphone jack for audiobooks, as well as an e-mail address.

"After using these nippy blue modules in several of our DDR3 motherboard reviews, we thought it was about time we got up-close and personal with them by pushing them to their limits on our new DDR3 testbed."

Very good write up, Jim! :)
But the timings seem to lose at the moment... Stick with DDR2 until DDR3 price drops a little and they sort out those timings!

Thanks!

Timings! Did you learn nothing from this lol.

Goes off to read review...

Edit: Well, they are very average aren't they. I think you should remove 'Reasonable performance' from 'The Good' and add it to 'The Mediocre'. Reasonable does not strike me as a good attribute.

Good review though, just average sticks
