Today's roundup contains an article looking at some of the features of the upcoming refresh of the AMD Bulldozer processor. In the storage arena, we get a chance to read up on an external RAID enclosure from Akitio along with a review of the OCZ Vertex 4 256GB solid state drive. The Nexus 7 tablet runs the Android "Jelly Bean" operating system and has a 7-inch display and seems to be targeted directly at the Kindle Fire segment of the market. Check out the review to see if Amazon has some true competition.
