The Avengers is Out on DVD and Blu-Ray

The Avnegers DVDIt's hard to believe it, but Marvel's "The Avengers" is out on DVD and Blu-Ray.   It seems like this movie was just in theaters.  Oh wait, it was, like, just a few weeks ago. I have a special interest in this movie.  A very good friend of mine worked on the film, and is credited for his work on the Visual Effects team.  To me, that is very, very cool.  I wish I had credit on a blockbuster movie, but that would require me to actually be talented in some aspect of movie making. Anyway, for those of you who don't know what this movie is about:
Nick Fury is director of S.H.I.E.L.D, an international peace keeping agency. The agency is a who's who of Marvel Super Heroes, with Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When global security is threatened by Loki and his cohorts, Nick Fury and his team will need all their powers to save the world from disaster.

Amazon’s starts the Fire

Amazon Kindle Fire

Amazon Kindle Fire

So, Amazon debuted it's the Kindle Fire on Wednesday. This marks Amazon's first real tablet venture. The initial specs sound pretty good: 7" touchscreen, protected by gorilla glass; dual core processor; Android and a $199 price tag

The Fire doesn't have much data storage, no card slots, no 3G and the only port is for charging. But it has content. So the question is, can the Fire compete with existing tablets that do more, based mainly on the strength of the Amazon content cloud? It'll be interesting to see and if I can find $200 laying around, I may find out first hand. Of course, if Amazon wants to loan me one to review, you know I will!
