There's a lot to love about Etsy -- it's one of the best places on the internet to find all sorts of stuff like minimalist Captain America prints or laser-cut Deathly Hallows earrings, but shipping windows are kind of a crapshoot. That could change because Amazon is apparently emailing some of the...

If you were following Sony's CES press event in detail, you might recall it launched with a quick video of a new Sony product made by hand.
