Some of these are lightning deals and are currently live, so you will need to be quick if you are interested.

Amazon Fire TV Cube Confirmed – Fire TV-Echo Dot hybrid

Many people were slightly disappointed when the 4K Fire TV came in the form of a lower cost dongle with no ethernet (though it is a great device). Many AV enthusiasts wanted a more powerful box and we have continued to hope this would be released. There were leaks last year that Amazon was releasing 2 new Fire TVs, so the launch of the dongle was even more disappointing. It now appears that the leak may not have been that inaccurate after all and the 2nd device is for 2018 and may finally have a decent successor to the...

Infographic: Why Amazon is an Ecommerce Superstar?

With 304 million users and counting, Amazon is in a class of its own. This leading ecommerce site truly puts the sell back into selling. What is the key to its success? Most experts agree that the success of this retail giant can be primarily attributed to innovation. Ten years ago, the idea of ordering something online and receiving it within half an hour was ludicrous. But Amazon drones make this a real possibility for some customers. It’s crazy – you could have your order in less time than it would take to get dressed and drive to the...

Amazon Echo Spot Review Score 86%

Amazon Echo Spot Review

The Echo Spot was finally released in the UK this week and can either been seen as a budget mini Echo Show or very expensive Echo Dot with a screen. Does it find a comfortable middle ground between the two devices? While the Echo Show is large and ugly, the Echo Spot can only be described as cute with its dinky ball shape. I did find it bigger in real life than the pictures suggest, but it is still tiny and should fit on any desk. Design It comes in black or white and at there are no swappable...

Amazon Fire TV 4K (2017) Review

Following my review of the GooBang Doo ABOX A1 Plus, I wasn’t entirely happy with the performance for my particular needs. It is a decent device for the money, I am just a bit fussy about things, I wasn’t overly keen on the user interface, the remote didn’t work very well in Netflix, and I would get artefacts playing network files in Kodi. There is also the issue with 4K DRM from streaming services, which isn’t a huge issue for me, but something I would like for future proofing. So, going back to researching options and using the excellent...

Amazon’s touchscreen Echo could launch this week

A few days ago, plans for the touchscreen Amazon ache were leaked and it appears that it could be announced as soon as today. The leak has caused a lot of discussion on just how ugly the design is (assuming it is real). The touchscreen speaker has a 7inch display sitting on top of a speaker and the inclusion of a camera. It has a sort of wedge shape which gives it a bit of a retro look, and in general looks like there has not been much thought into making it look nice.  The same could be said...
