Amazon decides to suspend sales of the Nintendo 3DS handheld.Amazon decides to suspend sales of the Nintendo 3DS handheld.

A heads up to anyone thinking of purchasing a shiny new Nintendo 3DS from Amazon.com, you can't right now. You'll have to go to a local retailer (edit: or a non-Amazon marketplace seller) , at least for now, to get your hands on one. The official word from Amazon is that there may be something wrong with the method in which the handheld is shipped or the way in which shipping is described. Huh?

No real details yet but Nintendo says that they will definitely have more information by the time this year's E3 expo comes around (this June - just a couple more months).  Goodie.

From graphic calculators to PIN terminals, it looks more and more like there really isn't a device that can't play Tetris. Also, that watch pictured in the thumbnail is quite stylish. Just look at that bling!

Adobe decides to chime in on the iPad's lack of Flash capability.Adobe decides to chime in on the iPad's lack of Flash capability.

The lack of Flash support for the iPad - and, for that matter, for the iPhone and iPod touch as well - is Apple's doing, not Adobe's. Adobe, for its part, has been eager to get Flash onto Apple's handhelds for quite some time.
