This week marked the passing of Steve Jobs, Founder of Apple and Pixar Studios.
Since his passing on October 5, there have been lots of well-written retrospectives about how Jobs helped usher in the personal computer era and transform four different industries â€” PCs, mobile phones, music, and animated movies â€” and bring Apple back from economic oblivion to become the most valuable company on the planet.
I will for now direct you to this blog post.
May his soul rest in eternal peace.
Amazon this week released two new versions of its popular Kindle eBook and a new Tablet christened “Fire” running on an Android OS.
The Kindle is now available in a touch version sprting an inproved eInk pearl display at a great price, $79/= for the Kindle 4, $99/= for the new Kindle Touch.
Amazon hopes to harness its dominance in e-commerce to pose a real challenge to Appleâ€™s iPad with its new fire tablet.
On paper, the device looks great, but while the Kindle Fire can vie with the iPad in access to media content, it lacks a camera, microphone or a connection to a 3G wireless network.
It does however come at an attractive price, retailing at just $199/= (roughly Ksh. 21,000/=)
Thats it for this week, as usual, leave any comments or suggestions in the comment section below.
Have a great week
