Don’t ask me where I got that date; my antennas told me. Serendipitously I read two articles tonight. (I love Thanksgiving weekend.) I’ve probably got the details wrong, but consider three technologies:
- Amazon’s new “Kindle Fire” tablet
- Amazon’s new “Silk” browser
- IBM’s Watson.
1. Kindle “Fire”
In case you missed it, there’s been enormous talk about Amazon’s latest Kindle product, the Fire. It bears little resemblance to previous “books only” Kindles – it’s a media-streaming tablet. To understand what a big difference this is, see the new Wired interview with Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.
