Jeff Bezos is in a good mood. His day will likely resemble a gauntlet, with dozens of tech journalists marching into Amazon headquarters three at a time to hear him repeat details of the three new Fire tablets and cutting-edge customer service program that are his company’s latest creations. But the widely admired CEO is smiling and often punctuating points with an explosive laugh. For the launch of Amazon’s three new tablets — the Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch, Kindle Fire HDX 8.9-inch and another Kindle Fire HD — Bezos has made the relatively rare decision to eschew a product event for this series of more intimate meetings.

Further Reading What we know about Project Spartan: extensions and performance, yes, Windows 7, no We haven't even gotten a public build of Microsoft's new Project Spartan browser yet, but the company is already tweaking its browser strategy. Windows 10 was always going to support both Spartan and Internet Explorer, and they were always going to be separate browsers. As originally conceived, both of them would be able to switch between the legacy Trident rendering engine and the new Edge rendering engine. Internet Explorer would remain more focused on legacy sites, though—it would retain compatibility with ActiveX plugins and third-party toolbars, features that Spartan is stripping out. Now, an MSDN blog post says that Microsoft is making the Spartan and Internet Explorer split even more pronounced .
