Call me, "An old school kind of guy," since I have very little interest of buying anything online (The only way I would consider buying anything online is if the desired item is hard to get in stores).
Recently, I read an article about Amazon's intentions of wanting to open a store in Manhattan, New York; it was the type of news that I found to be pleasing.
There are people like me who would rather walk into a store and purchase an item (Besides, lots of people are apprehensive of making credit card purchases on line — a fear that was brought about due to hackers acquiring one's credit card information).
Also, the experience of walking into an actual store is psychologically comforting; the fragrances of the books, the sounds of the electronics, feeling the texture of the desired item with your own hands and having a customer representative around; a knowledgeable person who is willing to answer any questions about the items that are on sale at their store (So, I do think that Amazon wanting to build an actual mortar and brick store is a brilliant idea).
We need to bring back the human way of doing things and the online automated service lacks the human touch.
If Amazon's physical store happens to be a success in Manhattan (and I have a strong feeling that it will), the company may choose to build more of their mortar and brick stores throughout the United States (And probably, other parts of the word too).

I have been looking into the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9; it looks like a reasonable-working tablet that the entire family can have fun with.
ConnectivityAn electronics expert pointed out to me that the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 only comes with the Wi-Fi feature when you're purchasing the tablet from Amazon and if you want to get both Wi-Fi and 4G LTE, you will have to go over to AT&T (In my case, the one with the Wi-Fi feature alone is perfect for me, because I live in The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago).
Storage SizeThere are three storage sizes to choose from:
16 GB, 32GB and 64GB.
Great HD DisplayIt has a pixel density of, 339 ppi/2560x1600 and also improved brightness and reduced glare (Now, who can complain about that? I like the "Reduced glare" part, because glare can be a figurative pain in the butt).
Wonderful Battery LifeThe Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 has a battery life of 12 hours; however, if you are doing simple reading on it, the battery life can be stretched to 18 hours.
It Is Rather LightThe Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 weighs only 13.2 ounces (Which is way lighter than a lot of those popular tablets on the market).
The Tablet Has Two CamerasAt the front of the tablet, there is a HD camera and at the back of it, there is an 8MP HD camera with Electronic Image Stabilization, LED flash and much more.
The ConclusionThe Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is a tablet that is worth the money (The last time I checked Amazon, it was priced at $379.00 US dollars).
If you are interested in getting the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 for your own personal use, or to give as a gift, you can visit Amazon's website for further details.

The reality is: the majority of the people who visits your website or blog, will not have the Alexa toolbar installed; which will automatically result in an inaccurate global ranking.
I have known bloggers who had tons of visitors to their blogs and despite the fact that their own blog site showed that their daily statistics were impressive, Alexa ranked them poorly. So, dear friends, do not rely on Alexa's so-called global ranking system to ascertain whether or not your website or blog is doing well.
Alexa is a waste of time and therefore, Amazon should scrap that technical failure that they call a global ranking system.
From my perspective, Alexa, doesn't worth its weight in gold!
