Amazon pushed an update to its Appstore today that brings a few new features, as well as a much sleeker interface. The theme is much easier on the eyes now, as the formerly-white app is now wearing a suit of gray with hints of orange, which matches the color scheme of the upcoming Kindle Fire perfectly.

Aside from the change in appearance, the Appstore also has support for in-app purchases and parental controls now, as well as a page where you can check permissions before you purchase an app.

It seems earlier suspicions that Barnes & Noble would be unveiling a replacement for the NOOK Color on November 7th have been all but confirmed by an e-mail invitation the company has sent out to major tech outlets:

There has been no reliable information about the next NOOK Color leaked at this point, though with a week to go, we won't be surprised if the device gets an unauthorized blurrycameo before its official unveiling.

Remember that weird little Vizio tablet that was released back in July? Yeah, the one that works as a remote control for your Vizio Google TV. I feel like I'm not alone in thinking that it was slightly under-spec'd and drastically overpriced at launch, even if you can justify its use with your TV. Fortunately, Amazon has taken care of the latter issue by dropping the price down to a much more reasonable $199 with free shipping.

It's a pretty well known fact that, when trying to lose weight, you have to create a caloric deficit -- for every 3500 calories burned, that's one pound of weight lost. Thus, it takes a combination of diet and exercise to create said deficit. However, it is exceedingly difficult to keep track of your caloric intake, as well as calculate the calories burned for various activities. If you're serious about getting in shape, though, there is a solution: using an automatic body monitoring system like BodyMedia's FIT Armband.

I don't usually post Amazon Appstore apps outside of our social media accounts, but today I felt compelled. There are a few options when it comes to office replacement apps that can read and write all your docs, presentations, and spreadsheets - most of them costing over $10. I've been eyeing OfficeSuite for a while, but never really bothered to try it out.

Well, I just did because OfficeSuite Pro 5 is free at the Amazon Appstore today, and after playing with it, I have to say it's the best office app for Android I've tried so far (at least based on my first impressions).

Remember Amazon Wireless' Freedom to Choose video contest? Yeah, the one with $15k in prizes for making a simple video telling why AW is awesome. Artem and I helped judge the contest alongside folks from Android & Me and Phonedog --  all the videos have been weighed and measured, and the winning clips have now been chosen.

There were two different categories: Judges and Voting. Here are the winning videos for each category:

It looks like Amazon's Gold Box and Woot! have paired up to offer a discount on the Motorola Xoom today. If you hurry, you can grab a factory refurbished, 32GB Xoom for just $339.99 (with free shipping), which is about $15 less than the last deal we saw from Woot! on the original Honeycomb tablet.

The deal will only be available until 12AM PDT tomorrow, so if you've been waiting for your chance to get a Xoom on the cheap, head over to Amazon and take advantage of the discount before time runs out.

Atrix 2

AT&T's fall line-up of smartphones got a boost today with the Motorola Atrix 2 going on sale for $99.99 with a 2-year contract.

However, if you are a new customer signing up for a 2-year contract, we would strongly recommend heading to AmazonWireless and picking up the device for only $49.99.

Unfortunately, the deal isn't so great for current customers as they will have to pay $199.99 for the handset.

Those who already have an AT&T contract may be feeling left out by Amazon's lack of a discount, but fear not as Best Buy is offering the Atrix 2 for $49.99 to ALL its customers, regardless of whether they are upgrading or signing up for a new line.

Not one hundred dollars, not ten dollars, not one dollar, one cent. That's right, the LTE-packing Droid Bionic can be yours for a penny from Amazon Wireless if you're a switcher. Current Verizon customers have to pay the full $220. The usual hooks apply, it's a penny only on a 2 year contract.

Amazon is even throwing in free shipping. What more do you want? If you are still on the fence, check out our review of the Bionic here.

What do you do if you're a known patent troll and a major company announces a new device that is sure to sell millions of units? Try to sue the heck out of them, of course. That's exactly what's going on with Amazon's upcoming Kindle Fire, the still-unreleased tablet from the online retail giant.

The story goes a little something like this: Amazon announces the Fire for an ultra-affordable price. Everyone is happy and wants this new device, so pre-orders are through the roof.
