Apple isn't worried about the Kindle Fire, but should it be?

Apple may have disappointed Wall Street with its fourth quarter earnings, but make no mistake about it: most companies would kill for a quarter like it.

The company issued a strong guidance for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, and Apple's CEO Tim Cook is confident.

Amazon readies the Kindle Fire: report

Amazon's Kindle e-reader may be one of the most popular e-readers, but the company's long-term position in the market is far from certain.

Today, bookseller Borders lowered the price of its e-reader devices...again. Starting at $99, the Alarutek is the cheapest e-reader on the market.
