In June the rumor was that Amazon isn’t getting enough parts for the production of the company’s upcoming tablet devices. But now it looks like Amazon has found the right suppliers and is reportedly buying all parts that it can to ramp up production of the 7 and 10-inch tablets.
Vendor reports suggest that Amazon now comes second only to Apple when it comes to IC parts shipment from Taiwan. This synchs up with the previous report that Amazon is importing 2-finger touchscreen display solution for its devices. So we may be seeing three sizes of tablets.

If users want to keep getting support, they will have to upgrade to Windows Vista SP2, though Microsoft suggests it would be better for you to upgrade to Windows 7. Better for them too of course. The company is trying to get everything in order for the arrival of Windows 8 in 2012.

Nintendo hasn’t completely ruled out the possibility down the line, however comments made by Satoru Iwata make it clear that the Wii U will only support one Wii U controller. This is an odd move by the company. In all likelihood you can still play multiple player games. Maybe using Wii remotes, or passing a controller around. It comes down to money.
“Technically, it is possible for the Wii U to support multiple Wii U Controllers,” Iwata said. However, this will result in a “considerable” price increase.
According to Iwata, “We’re not planning on asking our customers to buy multiple Wii U Controllers.”
