Samsung puts a Nook spin on its Galaxy Tab 4, Sharp launches a smartphone with an eye-catching design, and Uber takes on Google and Amazon with an instant-delivery service.
The bookstore operator said it will separate its retail unit from its Nook Media business.
The service was already available in the US, and allows aspiring authors to publish their own books and sell them through the Nook platform.
The offer is billed as temporary, but suggests Barnes & Noble's Kindle-fighting slates aren't selling well.
Hewlett-Packard recalls more than 6 million defective power cords, Microsoft promises a fix for overheating Surface Pro 3 tablets, and Square Cash sends money over text messages.
Samsung gears up for the upcoming smart home wars, Intel creates heartbeat sensing earbuds, and Barnes & Noble teases the next Nook.
In a Mother's Day sale, you can pick up the Nook HD and Nook HD+ for as low as $149 and $179, respectively.
A website that's since been taken down points to a service called Kindle Unlimited with unlimited access to e-books and audiobooks.
It's refurbished, but because it's a "certified pre-owned" unit, it has a one-year warranty and should arrive in like-new condition. Sellout risk: huge!
Amazon has chopped £20 off the price of its tablet, possibly in response to similar cuts from Barnes & Noble.
