The Amazon App Store will include both Amazon website as well as a dedicated app.
It is being anticipated that while the Amazon App store may become popular soon after the launch, it will also face problems. This is because companies like AT&T are authorized to block apps, which don’t come from Android market.
Thus, the AT&T users will not be able to try the Amazon App store, either from the portal app or web.
It will be the first major Android store in which phone owners will be able to go beyond Android market willingly, for better deals.
But, the AT&T users will not get its benefit, because Google has refused to maintain openness on Android.
Apple has banned the third party stores totally, but platforms like Blackberry or webOS support them, though with less footing. Microsoft has allowed a sub-section only.
The highly anticipated Amazon App store will be offering a new app titled ‘Angry Bird Rio.’ The app store will bring a new competition to the reining Android market.

The two astronauts were Stephen Bowen and Al Drew. These two space walkers had huge duties bestowed upon them.
The vacuum and low temperature in space makes the space walk a challenging task. They departed from the U.S. Quest airlock at 11:18 am, dressed in specially designed protective spacesuit.
This was the 154th spacewalk, since the first two station building blocks were connected in 1998.
At the outset, Stephen Bowen was not the chosen spacewalker for this mission, but as spacewalker Tim Kopra met a bicycle accident, in January, Bowen replaced him in this mission.
Praising Bowen for his adaptability and expertise, NASA flight director, David Korth said, "Steve brings a wealth of (spacewalking) experience. He's a very seasoned shuttle astronaut, and he picked up quickly in (training) runs, coming up to speed on the path that we have."

The social networking website, in a letter to the Congress revealed its plans to make personal information visible to third party users and websites, leading users to think twice about continuing their relationship with the website.
The recent announcement by Facebook about its plans to make personal information available to third party users, has added to the frustration that many Facebook users had through the many years over the social networking platform making sudden tweaks in its settings, conforming to personal information.
Concern over Facebook’s plans
The development, which was intimated through a letter to Reps. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) and Joe Barton (R-Tex.), has led both of them to express their concerns over Facebook’s plans, to make such crucial user information available.
