For those who like to keep up with the startup scene in Silicon Valley, there are few resources better than TechCruch. Of course, that's not all the TC crew covers - there's also gadgets, gear, and other fun techy junk.

And now, you can get all the TechCruch content you can handle by way of an official Android tablet app. The app appears to be well designed, as it features an intuitive split-screen layout and a rich, immersive experience.

Yesterday, Amazon made waves by announcing what experts are calling "a bajillion new Kindles." Pre-orders went live yesterday from Amazon, but if you'd rather pick yours up from a store like they used to do when your parents were kids, Best Buy is now offering you that chance. You will have to give up that cardboard grin, though:

All of the new Kindles will be available for pre-order, including the non-Androidy ones.

In all the Jelly Bean excitement, it can be easy to forget that only 20% of Android users are running Ice Cream Sandwich. Today that number gets just ever so slightly larger, though. AT&T has announced that the Samsung Captivate Glide will be upgraded to 4.0 starting today, September 7th. Woo!

The update will only be available via Kies, so head to your favorite desktop computer post haste. It will not be rolling out over the air.

Walt Disney World Resort might be home to the Most Magical Place on Earth®, but with 30,000 acres and millions of visitors every year, it's awfully easy to have a bad day there. To that end, Disney has released its very own guide app, covering all four theme parks and the various satellite tourist areas around Disney World. The most useful feature is probably the detailed maps, complete with annotations for rides, shops, restaurants, et cetera, and GPS tracking to help you find your way around.

Back in July, HeroCraft released The Tiny Bang Story, a game about a tiny planet torn to shambles by a not-so-tiny asteroid. Back then, however, it was exclusive to some Sony Xperia devices and the Tablet S. No more, though! Sony exclusivity is gone, and this crafty little puzzle game is now available for most devices.

As you can see, you use a lot of tiny little things to restore your tiny planet back to its full, full-sized glory.

If you couldn't make your way out to Santa Monica today to watch Jeff Bezos and company take the wraps off the new line of Kindles (and live blogs just aren't good enough), you can now watch the entire event on YouTube.

Hit play above and you'll get about one hour and 12 minutes of pure, unadulterated Kindle-y goodness. We're talking the Kindle Paperweight Paperwhite, rehashed Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HDs, and all other Kindle typing things you can handle.

I had a chance to spend some time with Amazon's new Kindle Fires today at the company's event in Los Angeles, so I'm going to share a few thoughts about Amazon's newest Android-based slates. Disclaimer: Yes, I only spent about an hour with this tablet today, but I'm going to give you a sense of where I think the Kindle Fire HD is headed, who it's targeted to, and whether or not you should be interested in buying it.
