    Here’s an article on the Kindle Fire.  I’m not impressed.

    There’s nothing to be gained by racing to the bottom. The Windows PC market showed just how unprofitable a game that is.

    Where Apple differentiates itself is in the services that are provided via the iPhone and iPad, which are not easily replicated by hardware vendors.

    My prediction for the AMZN earnings:  Amzn beats the topline but tanks the bottom line.  Only makes sense when they are paying each and every Kindle/tablet customer to buy one.  Every device out the door decreases their margin.

    Maybe it’s time to buy AMZN.  WS sees top line sales increase and awards it a P/E of 200.  Thin on profits?  Pffffft.  rolleyes

    Horace has a new post on the lack of any sense to Apple’s P/E in light of minimum 83% earnings growth..
