          Sep 30 2011 Published by under General Interest

          Appolicious – Need to clean your apartment, but feeling lazy and not looking for a full-fledged maid service? Maybe you’re moving soon and need to round up some boxes, but don’t want to beg local store managers yourself. Enter TaskRabbit, a startup that puts people looking for odd jobs in touch with users like you who need help doing just about anything. I first read about the web-based service in the July issue of Wired, but I needed to wait until mid-September for the service to make its way to Chicago so I could  give the iPhone and iPod app version a try.

              Appolicious – The Amazon Kindle Fire was finally unveiled yesterday, introducing another Android-powered tablet to contend with the domineering iPad. The Kindle Fire doesn’t come with all the features the iPad has, and is arguably less attractive hardware-wise than other Android tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. What the Kindle Fire does have, however, is a strong ecosystem backed by Amazon, combining a curated app store, a publisher hub and access to the whole of Amazon’s marketplace, all for a reasonable price at $199.
