- See if Amazon can convince small bookshop owners to sell Kindles with a new program called Amazon Source.

- Dream of a day when a tablet can fold like a newspaper, because Samsung is hard at work on the concept .

- Check if Google knows your number, because it can use your photo in its new caller ID feature for Android .
