Amazon allows Kindle application for Mac computers

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 1:50 am

Amazon.com Inc said on Thursday it released an application to allow its Kindle e-books to be read on Apple Inc Mac computers.

Amazon, maker of the popular Kindle e-reader, is trying to cement its leading position as the top maker of e-readers — and distributor of e-books — by making content available on other devices.

The move comes just two weeks ahead of the launch of Apple’s new iPad tablet, a device with broader functionality than the Kindle, but which includes an e-reader application. The iPad is seen as a strong challenge to Amazon.

    Smart move from Amazon. Apple has their hands firmly gripped on a big piece of the market, might as well try and leverage that as much as possible. What you guys think…does this smell like the end of the Kindle?
