Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.
Now that Amazon's expansion drama is over, we can focus on the important things in life, like Keurig's new bartender-in-a-box. Also, a new space race is heating up and we've reviewed the latest Kindle Paperwhite.
The NYC site is coming to Long Island City and will span four-million square feet and make room for 25,000 new jobs, while Arlington's 'National Landing' -- a name that has surprised people who already live and work in the Crystal City area -- will get a similar amount of space and create the same number of jobs.
Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite has long been the go-to ereader, and for good reason. It provides an enjoyable reading experience with enough premium features to keep most literary lovers happy. Now, with the addition of Bluetooth/Audible and waterproofing, it's even more useful and durable than before. According to James Trew: Skip the base model and go straight to this one.

The "Keurig of cocktails" market is already crowded with wannabes that don't seem to be gaining much traction, but if anyone can build the Keurig of anything, it's got to be Keurig itself, right? Drinkworks is a joint venture between the single-serving coffee-pod giant and Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev), and it's building a familiar-looking machine that mixes up cocktails using disposable pods.
