Apples new Siri personal assistant is crazy crazy stuff. Being able to talk to your phone like a real person is the stuff of Sci-Fi. Here's the catch: It's limited to the province of the new iPhone 4S.
The Amazon Kindle, first of its name. When the original Kindle launched in 2007, it was immensely popular, selling out within hours and remaining out of stock for months, but it also wasn't the eReader juggernaut that the Kindle is today. It had a 6-inch screen and 250MB of memory, which was expandable by SD card, and originally went for $400.
Amazon's new Kindle Touch is $99, with the Kindle Fire tablet costing an equally preposterous $200. The $99 price point is for the Special Offers version, though, so if you need a totally ad-free reader, the no-ads version will run you $139.
