Amazon has come a long way over the years and has certainly changed the way consumers shop. And with their recent launch of Amazon Fresh, they are slowly attempting to tackle the online grocery shopping industry as well.
For the past five years the service has been available only in Seattle, where Amazon launched the pilot grocery project and tried to work out the kinks. To be fair, this is one of the longest-running tests in tech history. But based on recent reviews about its newest expansions to Los Angeles and San Francisco, it sounds like maybe they should have kept trouble-shooting for a little bit longer.
Last week we introduced to you Oprah’s new favorite thing- the Amazon Kindle.

Oprah revealed that her newest favorite thing is the Amazon Kindle, a revolutionary digital reading device than can download and store up to 200 books, magazines and newspapers. Using wireless technology similar to a cell phone, the Kindle does not need an Internet connection. For a cost of about $10, you can download your choice of more than 185,000 books, hundreds of magazines, newspapers from the U.S. and around the world, and access more than 850 blogs.
The Kindle weighs about 10 oz. and fits in the palm of your hand. Being light-weight, it’s small enough and convenient to take just about anywhere. If you’ve needed a reason to catch up on the latest diet books, keep your favorite cookbook at the tips of your fingers, or never miss an issue of your favorite health magazine, the Kindle is worthy of being one of your new favorite things.

On those shows she always reveals the latest candle, book, clothing, shoes, appliances and more that she just can’t seem to live without. Her hysterical audience squeals as they learn each new thing they’ll be taking home.
Today, she unveiled the new tech gadget that she says is “the wave of the future.” It’s the Amazon Kindle, a digital reading device that uses revolutionary technology called electronic paper. The hand-held device is incredibly light weight (10.3 oz.) and the 6″ screen reads as crisp as reading a book or newspaper. (more…)
