Tablets?have been hit or miss with consumers since they became popular with the iPad. Sales of tablets hit their peak in 2014, and were down 10% last year with total shipments at 206.8 million .
Most of us were given the expectation that tablets would be laptop replacements, but that idea flamed out over the past few years.
This week the folks at Amazon appear to have experienced a bit of a leak - on their newest e-reader, the Kindle Oasis. At least, that's what the leak suggests it'll be called. This leak comes from China, and includes details on what the device will look like and act like.
Amazon has pushed back at suggestions it's selling out Fire tablet users on data encryption, arguing that it was a Spring clean not a security lapse.

Tell me if this sounds familiar: Apple, looking to broaden its appeal, takes an existing high-end device and squeezes its important bits into a smaller, familiar-looking body. That was the case with the iPhone SE, and at first glance, that appears to be true of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro as well; it seems like last year's iPad Pro in the body of an iPad Air 2.

First the size wows you, then the price floors you. That Amazon's new Kindle Oasis is its skinniest, most unusually-designed yet didn't come as a complete surprise thanks to earlier leaks, but its eye-watering cost in the flagship spot at the pinnacle of the company's ereader range certainly dropped some jaws.
Amazon has backtracked on Fire tablet encryption, having triggered an outpouring of criticism after removing support in the latest Fire OS 5 release.

Ever try to enter in your username and password using nothing more than a handheld remote? I have several bluetooth keyboards I could use with my various streaming devices, such as Apple TV or Amazon Fire TV, but I never seem to have one handy. The iPazzPort is a Bluetooth keyboard that comes with two sleeves to combine a full QWERTY keyboard with your Amazon Fire remote.
Writing relevant posts for The Gadgeteer could be a full time (and overtime) endeavor.Since this isn’t realistic for me,I focus on writing about things that can make a difference in people’s lives.

Summer is my favorite season of the year. Days are the longest and nights are the shortest. It’s the time we get to spend outdoors under the sun with friends at BBQ’s, camping trips, backpacking adventures, road trips and international excursions.
If ever an ereader was aspirational, the Kindle Oasis, Amazon 's eighth generation and most dramatically impressive to-date, is it. Taking the online retail behemoth's aping of paper with the flexibility of digital books to its most extreme example so far, the Kindle Oasis promises cutting-edge ergonomics along with the flexibility of not one, but two batteries and a clever way to carry both.
