Amazon Quietly Releases Another Kindle

The tablet craze has died down a little and Amazon is still quietly plugging away with the best portable reading experience possible. The Kindle Paperwhite has just received a refresh and the new one features an e-ink screen that has an incredible 300ppi (pixels per inch). This kind of resolution comes at no extra cost to you and the new 2015 Kindle Paperwhite will replace their current 2013 version in the near future. Amazon has nailed this market and they show no signs of giving up anytime soon.

Unless you are incredibly finicky about the technology of your e-reader, there's just not much reason to spend the extra $80 to get the Voyage. The Voyage gives you improved contrast, quasi-button zones for turning pages, an adaptive backlight, and 12 percent less weight than other Kindles, but I don’t really think those things add up to being worth the extra cost.

Facebook Gets Expensive

It appears that Facebook is now letting you send money right through Facebook Messenger. This sounds like a convenient way for people to mess with you and snag some free cash. According to sources, you can transfer money into your friends bank account by hooking up a payment method like a debit card (similar to PayPal). Although there are fees associated for credit cards, the cost is low and Facebook wants to be a part of the growing payment pie.

To recap, users who add their debit card information in Messenger's settings section can send payments by starting a conversation with one or more friends, picking the "$" icon that appears in the row above the software keyboard, and tapping "Pay." Users who receive money do so by opening up that friend's message and accepting the payment when prompted.

ADATA @ CES 2013

We had the chance to sit down with ADATA at CES 2013 and check out the latest and greatest from them. ADATA is most famous for their DDR memory, Flash drives, SSD’s and memory cards and over the years we’ve had the chance to take a look at a few of them and have always been happy with the performance and quality. ADATA has a full lineup of SSD and memory products on display. one of which is their lineup of M.2 (NGFF) SSD drives which are designed for things like Ultrabooks where a full 2.5" drive just won't fit.

This year at CES ADATA is showing off a new product, the DashDrive Air. The DashDrive Air is a great portable device that can wirelessly transfer files to and from a SD card to your smartphone (Android or iOS). The DashDrive also has a battery inside which allows you to charge up any USB device. If thats not enough for you, the DashDrive Air can also act as a wireless hotspot and share a wireless connection with up to 8-10 devices (depends on model of DashDrive). The DashDrive Air comes in two models, the AE800 (which features an internal 500GB hard drive instead of having to use SD cards) and the AE400 (which is a bit smaller and uses an SD card for storage). The combination of a power bank, wireless hotspot, and wireless file storage makes this a very interesting product and could make it a great travel accessory.

Apple iWatch Rumors

More rumors coming out today about the Apple iWatch over at Pocket Lint. The fact that Apple has been working on a smartwatch won't come as much of a surprise but now the "leaked" pictures and rumors are going to be coming fast and furious as it is being reported that the iWatch will be launched in October. According to supply chain details it's looking like the watch will look similar to the Motorola 360 smartwatch but since it's made by Apple it will be "revolutionary". For more on this set of rumors head on over here.

Design details of the Apple iWatch have been revealed by an analyst that claims to have got the information from within Apple's supply chain.

Brian Blair of Rosenblatt Securities alleges that his sources in Taiwan are insistent that the new smartwatch from the Cupertino company will have a round face, much like the Motorola Android Wear device, Moto 360.
