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 .

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. The online behemoth faced vocal criticism this week over its Fire OS 5 software for its affordable Android-based tablets, which quietly removed support for encrypting data.

That $50 tablet Amazon introduced not too long ago is coming in several new colors starting this week. Amazon calls the Amazon Fire the company's "fastest-selling tablet ever" - without actually giving any numbers.

Each week I take a quick look at several crowdfunding campaigns that I think look interesting. The projects that caught my eye this week include a minimalist desk that can be used sitting or standing, a “speaker” for your smartphone that doesn’t use cables or batteries, and a wearable device holder that lets you go hands-free. Click through to see this week’s notable Kickstarter projects.

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.
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.
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.

If you'll forgive the hipster-ish-ness of it all, I was a cord-cutter before cord-cutting was a thing. Not because I wanted to be, but rather due to a childhood in which we didn't have cable and, later on, the habit of living without it. I had an old Dell laptop connected to the TV and a ton of DVDs ripped to its hard drive.

Cloud storage services like Dropbox expands that almost infinitely and also solves the problem of collaboration as well.
