Online retail giant Amazon has recently unveiled its new virtual currency - dubbed 'Amazon Coins' - in the UK and Germany. The move implies that users will be able to buy apps and in-app purchases on Amazon's Kindle Fire line of tablets using the new virtual currency.
Online retail giant Amazon, which has been expanding its Australian operations significantly over the last few years, has revealed in a recent announcement that it is launching the Kindle Fire HD and the Kindle Fire HDX in Australia.
The Amazon announcement about the launch of Kindle Fire HD and HDX in Australia comes after the release of the Kindle Paperwhite in the country.
On Tuesday, online retail giant Amazon officially launched its September-announced `Kindle MatchBook' program, which will give publishers and authors an opportunity to package print books with discounted digital editions.
The range of services available from Amazon Web Services' (AWS) Sydney region has recently been expanded with the addition of Glacier and Redshift. While Glacier is the AWS' ultra low-cost archival storage service, Redshift is its fully managed data warehouse in the cloud.
One of the most noteworthy features of online retailer Amazon's new Kindle Fire HDX tablets is, surprisingly, the device's `Help' button --- the much-touted `Mayday' feature.
Within one week of a 30-minute outage suffered by online retailer Amazon's North American store-front, a hardware failure on Sunday afternoon marked the latest disruption of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) division.
