Amazon Kindle Oasis Hands-On: The Thinnest, Lightest, Weirdest Kindle Yet

The new top-of-the-line premium reading gadget from Amazon (with a price tag to match) eschews the regular slate-like format for a super-slim asymmetrical design that’s so light it feels like you’re barely holding anything at all. Going up for pre-order today (ahead of a late April release) bundled with a unique charging case for a wallet-whipping £269.99, I had a brief fumble with the Oasis, and it’s left me truly intrigued.

Cosmos Preview: The Universe Gets a Much-Needed Reboot

When we found out that Seth MacFarlane—a man known more for fart jokes than a passion for science—was behind the reboot of Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, we were understandably a little concerned.
