Amazon launches iPhone Kindle book store, acquires Stanza

Amazon has just released a specific iPhone optimized Kindle book store. iPhone and iPod touch users can now easily browse and download more than 280,000 Kindle eBooks for the iPhone.

Ian Freed, Amazon vice president, said the consumer response to the new app is “tremendous”.

The app also utilizes Amazon’s 3G Whispersync technology, which essentially syncs bookmarks across the iPhone, iPod touch, and of course, the Kindle. So now, if you are reading a book on your iPhone, you can easily pick up later on your Kindle.

In related news, Amazon acquired iPhone eBook developer Lexcycle, the maker of the popular Stanza iPhone app. Stanza, the free application, gives people access to more than 100,000 eBook content partners. Lexcycle said the application will not change as a result of the acquisition.

Colon cancer is one of the leading causes of death. Irrespective of family history, everyone is exposed to the risk. About 90% of colon cancer cases begin from non-cancerous tumors, polyps, which could form in the large bowel. Screening with a colonoscopy will painlessly remove any polyps hence almost entirely reducing your risk of developing the horrible disease. The good news is that about 90% of colon cancer cases are preventable through a simple (yes, simple) colonoscopy.
