Amazon scrambles to register ‘cloud reader’ domain names

Kindle Cloud Reader

TechCrunch broke the news about the Kindle Cloud Reader, though Amazon hadn’t officially announced the web app.

While Amazon has registered related domain names in the past, employees within its legal department scrambled to register more names following the news.

The company registered several “cloud reader” domains and one other not-so-related name: AirPatriots.com.

Here’s a look at what Amazon scooped up on August 9 and 10.
