A couple of ducks were out of the office this week as they conducted some mobile eye tracking sessions using the new Tobii X-Series mobile eye tracker.

Amazon announced its hotly anticipated tablet, the Kindle Fire, in an attempt to compete in a market which is currently dominated by Apple. The latest tablet to hit the market will run a modified version of Google’s Android operating system and you can expect to pay around £130 for the device, although the launch date has not yet been announced in the UK. With a far more reasonable price for the average consumer, it could yet challenge the Apple iPad.
