RIP Steve Jobs

Sadly, it is true. The man that has given nothing but inspiration to the world has succumbed to his ill (as well as irreversible) health condition.

Steve Jobs has recently quit the position of the CEO in Apple due to these problems. Liver Cancer has reached a point of preventing him from stapping up to the needs of that position. But today Steve Jobs has died, leaving the world in grief. 

Steve Jobs, founer of Apple, has created a great impact through his ideas to the world. His thoughts have literally changed the way we act, work, interact, amuse and educate ourselves. His innovative ideas have created products used by people all over the world, products such as the iPhone, Mac, iPad and so on...

Steve Jobs died at the age of 56 years old.

Rest in piece Steve, you will be missed...

Amazon Kindle 'Fire' sells 95.000 pieces on its first 24 hours

Amazon Kinde 'Fire' has overpassed everyones ambitions on its first days of release, reaching 95000 sales just in a matter of 24 hours (according to eDataSource reports). 

Kindle Fire was expected to be a huge success by everyone. It combines all the features that make it a very stable and competitive tablet. If we takeinto consideration the price-features ratio, Kindle Fire may overpass even iPad since Kindle's price at the moment is much much lower. Beyond that, so far Kindle's sales have largely overpassed other manufacturers tablets such as HTC, Samsung or even Blackberry.

Kindle has reported more than 100.000 sales so far reaching a milestone for Amazon. Beyond that, the sky is the limit since the tablet so far is available only in the US. It will be interesting to see the people's reaction to it once it reaches UK and Europe in general. Rumor has it that in the UK its price will be around  159 Pounds.
