"They were ready to increase shipping costs to 1.80-2.00 euros outside of premium subscription costs to align more closely with the delivery charges of other goods on one condition: that we withdraw our bill so that it did not benefit bookstores," Darcos told Reuters.

When connected to an iPhone or Android phone over Bluetooth, it can make audio calls, play music, set timers and answer questions (such as "What's the weather?"). The Echo Frames also take advantage of Alexa's skills and smart device controls, so it can turn on compatible smart lights or a TV. 

The company said by 6pm that the issue was mostly resolved, and at 7.30pm the network device issue had been fully resolved, with Amazon adding that it was 'working towards recovery of any impaired services.' The AWS outage began at around 10am ET and had widespread impacts.

PARIS, Dec 7 (Reuters) - Amazon proposed raising book delivery charges in France to around 2 euros from almost nothing if parliament withdrew a bill that would make it more difficult for the e-commerce group to undercut local bookshops, a French senator told Reuters.

I also couldn't change the default mapping option to Google Maps on iOS. Instead, it defaults to the Maps app, which gave voice directions over Bluetooth the same way it would with any headphones. At that point, it was no different than just grabbing my phone. For some tasks, like when I asked for directions, Alexa directed me to the Alexa app on my phone, which opened Apple Maps. Alexa didn't even handle the turn-by-turn navigation.

The roughly eight-hour Amazon Web Services outage on Tuesday shut down communications between the e-commerce giant and the fleet of thousands of drivers it relies on, preventing drivers from getting route assignments or packages, according to The disruption hit the app Amazon uses to communicate with the network of independent contractors who carry out much of its last-mile shipping, leaving vans that were supposed to be on the road idle, sources told the outlet.

Senator Laure Darcos said Amazon had made the proposal for a minimum delivery charge of 1.80-2.00 euros ($2.03-$2.25) when its vice president for Books and Kindle content, David Naggar, met Culture Minister Roselyne Bachelot on Aug.

To others around me, it looked like I was just cross-eyed. At first, I found the blue light distracting but I got used to it over time. A little red light will flash and Alexa will tell you it's muted, while a little charging light under the right arm will also turn red, not that you can see it while wearing the Echo Frames.  It also made for a few awkward encounters when my eyes were looking towards the Frames itself. To mute Alexa, double-click the power button under the right arm.

But they are under pressure from online retailers like Amazon, Fnac and Leclerc, which have eroded their market share. Independent bookshops are held with special affection in France, the land of Victor Hugo and Simone de Beauvoir.

One impressed user raved: 'I was after a quiet fan for the bedroom and wasn't disappointed.

The big appeal of the Echo Frames, of course, Free Novels isn't the style but the technology. After becoming a mainstay in millions of households, Alexa truly moves outside the house with the Frames. In the Frames, Amazon's smart assistant really isn't much better than Siri.  But this is nothing like Jarvis in the Iron Man movies.

Roughly five hours after numerous companies and other organizations began reporting issues, the company said in a post on the AWS status page that it had 'mitigated' the underlying problem responsible for the outage, which it did not describe.
