- 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?

- Apple decides to kick a thousand apps out of the app store for gaming the system.
