Not Android, but Awesome: Amazon Prime Air Wants to Deliver Packages to You in 30 Minutes Using Drones

Life would probably be a lot less awesome if Amazon’s Prime service did not exist. Forget the streaming video part of it all, I’m talking specifically about its free 2-day and low-priced 1-day shipping options when you become a subscriber.

Asus Investor Document Confirms Transformer Prime “Launch” on November 9

Asus has already made it clear that an announcement for their new Transformer Prime is coming on November 9, but could that also be the launch date?

Last night’s Nexus-fest that started after Samsung posted a teaser to their CTIA event has already created enough talking points to take us through to next Tuesday.  The video did not give us much, but as with any teaser, folks spotted what they believe to be hidden messages like the one we are about to talk about.

The topic of the video was the idea that some things are just better when they are put together:  candles and wine, cookies and milk, newspaper and coffee, etc.  So when G+ member Joe Lancaster paused it when the new Nexus showed up, he noticed an extra shadow or outline behind it that he believes may be a tablet of some sort. His idea – that the Nexus that will be unveiled will also have the ability to be docked inside a tablet.   (more…)
