Apple buys BookLamp but could get so much more
Apple has purchased start-up company BookLamp which delivers personal book recommendations apparently as a way to get at Amazon. However what Apple should be buying is Barnes & Noble (B&N). The combination of B&N stores with Appple products would be a win-win for both companies. There are too many markets that do not have the benefit of an Apple store. Pulling together the existing stores with current and new Apple products could increase sales dramatically. Then the final piece to the puzzle for either Apple or Amazon would be the purchase of Ebay. To compete with the likes of Alibaba, tech companies have to think like Amazon and expand well beyond their current offerings.
Amazon Fire Phone
Amazon introduces the Fire Phone. A nice size screen and cameras all over the phone although no 3D high impact feature that many were hoping for, but a good start for the future in our opinion. The Fire phone aka the "Shopping Phone" or "Shop Amazon Phone" as we like to call it does have some good features. We don't intend on rushing out to buy one but do anticipate we will buy one in the future. We anticipate very good, no make that great things to come from this phone in the future versions.
