  • Apple updates Airport stations and Time Capsule, brings bug fixes and iCloud support
    It looks as if the Final Cut Pro X update wasn’t the only software refresh Cupertino folks had in store for us. In this particular case, it’s the company’s networking and backup goods — also known as Airport Express, Extreme and Time Capsule — that are on the receiving end of the virtual enhancements. The 802.11n stations are getting a fix that solves “an issue with wireless performance,” while the capsule is seeing some much needed iCloud support. Additional Apple cloud integration doesn’t stop there, as you’ll also be able to remotely access your Airport disk. Though, it’s worth mentioning that in order to take advantage of the new features you’ll have to update your Airport Utility to the latest version (6.0). That means you’ll also need Lion, so those of you keepin’ your OS X old school with Snow Leopard will be out of luck. Looking to up your wireless game? Hit up the source link for the full details.

  • Humble Bundle expands to Android with World of Goo, Anomaly and more

    The choose-your-own-price Humble Bundle has proven to be a runaway success on desktop platforms — helping fund indie developers and causes like Child’s Play and the EFF alike — and it’s now finally taken the plunge onto mobile devices. That move was kicked off today with the Humble Bundle for Android, which includes the games Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Osmos, and EDGE. Those three are available for any price you choose, but you’ll also get World of Goo thrown in if you pay more than the average price (just over $5 as of this writing). As always, you can also choose how you’d like your contribution split between developers and charity (and the Humble organization itself), and you’ll even get access the Windows, Mac and Linux versions of the same games as an added bonus. Hit the source link below to get started, or head on past the break for a video if you need any more convincing. We should also note that the Android games are offered as direct downloads, not through the Android Market; installations instructions are provided following your purchase.

  • Amazon announces Q4 2011 results: sales jump to $17.43 billion, but profits drop 58 percent
    Amazon’s just announced its earnings for the fourth quarter of the year, and it’s a bit of a mixed bag. While net sales were up 35 percent year-over-year to $17.43 billion, net income dropped a hefty 58 percent to $177 million, or 38 cents a share — that’s off analysts’ expectations, who were looking for sales in the neighborhood of $18.3 billion and earnings of 17 cents a share. As always, the company is remaining mum on any specific Kindle sales figures, but it says that sales of all Kindle devices nearly tripled over the holiday shopping season, and that the Kindle Fire remains the bestselling item across all of the products it offers; of course, the loss it’s taking on each one is also one of the big reasons for that drop in profits.

    Specific figures are equally hard to come by for some of Amazon’s other services, but the company says the number of Appstore for Android customers has nearly tripled from the previous quarter (with them downloading more apps in Q4 than all of the previous quarters combined), and that the number of Instant Video customers has more than doubled year-over-year (with the number of streams increasing 300 percent from the previous quarter). Looking at the full year, sales for 2011 totaled $48.08 billion, up 41 percent from $34.2 billion in 2010, while net income dropped 45 percent to $631 million (down from $1.15 billion in 2010). As for the future, Amazon is also lowering expectations somewhat for the first quarter of 2012, projecting that revenue will come in at $12 to $13.4 billion, and that net income could range from a $200 million loss to a gain of $100 million.
