Data for the last three months of 2011 appears to show that the iPad has lost some of its market share to Amazon's new Kindle Fire tablet. Research firm IHS iSuppli believes, however, that the iPhone 4S has had an even bigger impact on iPad sales.

While many merchants take advantage of Amazon's position as the leading online retailer, one merchant's unethical attempt to game the review system has shed more light on Amazon's inability to protect consumers from paid reviews.
