Episode Description 
Amazon used to be just a website where you could buy things and have them sent to you. Increasingly, Amazon is making the things themselves as well. The president of Staples says five or six new Amazon tablets are on the way to go with the Kindle reader and the Kindle Fire tablet. Where the e-retail company really stands to cash in, though, is the products you'll buy to go with it. Plus, the latest Robot Roundup.

Why is Amazon becoming a hardware company?

Don’t be fooled: All the new tablets Amazon has on the horizon are just shopping carts in disguise.
