Busy fall for Apple, Xbox, and Amazon

Apple's CEO promises "amazing" new products in the fall, and that could also be when Microsoft releases a new Xbox. Amazon also is reportedly cooking up new tech in the form of a video set-top box.

CNET Update is out of breath:

Now playing: Watch this: Busy fall for Apple, Xbox, and Amazon

Apple fans will have to wait until the fall for new "amazing" products, or so promises CEO Tim Cook.

Samsung fans will also be doing some waiting. The Galaxy S4 was said to hit stores this weekend, but the smartphone is facing supply issues -- and that's causing T-Mobile and Sprint to push back launch dates and only sell online. But you may be able to find one on Saturday in stores at AT&T, and on Tuesday at U.S. Cellular. [Read CNET's review here.]

For shoppers that plan on grabbing a Galaxy S4 from Best Buy, you might come across the retailer's new Samsung mini-stores, staffed by Samsung employees. And these Samsung shops will be larger than Apple's Best Buy mini-store area.

Also mentioned in today's jam-packed tech roundup:

- Microsoft will reveal the next Xbox on May 21

- Amazon is reportedly working on a set-top box to stream video

- Twitter is said to be adding new password security to prevent hacking
