Reading View Amazon's effort to de-clutter the Web browser also got a boost: the option is now easier to find on the page, touting a bright green icon at the top of the screen. Turn on Reading View, and Silk automatically loads multi-page articles in a single-screen format, eliminating the related links, advertisements, and other distracting material. The new Silk UI also features a left panel menu with options previously scattered across the browser. Either tap the three lines in the upper left or swipe the screen from left to right to call up the menu, which includes shortcuts to most-visited links, bookmarks, downloads, history, and trending topics, as well as settings and help. Additionally, the latest Silk release also includes performance enhancements. "Of course, these improvements are just a start," the company http://www.kiwibox.com/mossnmrq/blog/entry/108228977/the-metal-detector-will-make-a-louder-noise-over-the-larg/?pPage=0 said.
Why Amazon Is A Lousy Business
For reference, the Silk app splits its time running processing power between the client (i.e. a tablet) and the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (a.k.a. EC2). Thus, the goal with this " split architecture " is to maximize speed and performance for browsing the Internet while on-the-go while also churning data web link back to the Amazon Web Services cloud. The Seattle-headquartered corporation maintains that this data is used to make improvements for Silk and other products -- namely through analyzing aggregate web traffic patterns to later apply predictive algorithms. For the time being, it looks like a lot is about to change -- at least from an outside perspective -- with a number of new user interface enhancements on the way. A full list of alterations is available on the Amazon Silk team's official blog , but here's a rundown: A "Just-In-Time" (JIT) tutorial: Basically an overview that pops up the first time the user views the updated software, reviewing all of the new key features Reading View button given more visibility (The function reformats articles so that the body of the page is displayed in a "reading-optimized, single screen.")

While we oppose this unconstitutional state legislation, we strongly support the federal Marketplace Fairness Act now pending before Congress. Congressional legislation is the only way to create a simplified, constitutional framework to resolve interstate sales tax issues and it would allow us to re-open our Associates program to Missouri residents. We thank you for being part of the Amazon Associates Program, and look forward to re-opening our program when Congress passes the Marketplace Fairness Act.
Amazon discontinues associate referral program in Missouri
Heres an example from the AWS blog: A three-tier application is defined in a top-level template that has web tier, app tier, and database tier as nested stacks. Using CloudFormation, the top level stack and the nested stacks are created together and in the correct order. After the stacks are created, we want to add a new IAM user to the top-level stack and CloudWatch alarms to the web tier and the app tier. With the introduction of nested stack updates, we can update the top level stack, the web tier stack, and the app tier stack together and in the correct order. The stack for the database tier, which has no changes, would not be updated. Before introduction of nested stack updates, we would have had to update each of the nested stacks individually. Update: Dan Belcher, co-founder of Stackdriver, an avid AWS watcher, said while this is a fairly minor update it does illustrate that Amazon wants to do a good job supporting more complex application architectures and bring on more sophisticated features while competitors are still trying to get core IaaS components out the door. For example he cited news last week that Google launching new load balancing for Google Compute Engine.

While these firms certainly cant match Amazons e-commerce platform, who says they have to? They and roughly 100 other companies use BloomReachs service , which http://tesqikamtrar.livejournal.com/3466.html replicates many of Amazons technology advantages. The technology you own isnt as important as the technology you can access. So with neither market heft or cache, its hard to see how Amazon will ever significantly exceed average retail margins and, as of now, it doesnt even achieve that. Web Services: Amazon was a first mover in web services, in which it basically rents out its formidable infrastructure to companies that either dont want or cant afford to build their own. Its a great idea and a fantastic service. Alas, here again, Amazon is getting squeezed.
