Reports say Amazon scaling back on development of consumer devices

The Amazon Fire phone was a flaming failure, whether it was because of its price point or the less than impressive specs of the devices. While it didn’t really make a dent in the online retail store juggernaut’s finances, it may have affected their reputation as a producer of consumer devices. Reports are coming in that the company may be retrenching in some of their divisions, specifically those that work in Lab126, their hardware-development center where the Fire phone was developed.

Amazon releases updated shopping app, now calls it Underground

Amazon has recently introduced a new shopping app for Android. Amazon Underground lets you do your shopping for apps and games for free. By free we mean the apps offered are complete with all the premium features. No need to pay extra for in-app items because the titles included are free versions of popular paid apps like 'Goat Simulator', 'OfficeSuite Professional 8', 'PhotoSuite 4', 'Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions', 'Frozen Free Fall', 'Looney Tunes Dash!', and 'Angry Birds Slingshot' among others.

Amazon Appstore offering $90 worth of free apps until August 15

It’s that time of the month again (no, we don’t mean that one) and so you better make space on your Android devices as the Amazon Appstore is offering a lot of free apps, which include some of the most popular games, photo editing apps, and utilities. The catch of course is that you need to get the apps not through the Google Play Store but through Amazon’s own Appstore, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Amazon Dash buttons ready for shipping, now available for Prime members

The Amazon Dash button isn't a joke. Nope, the concept that Amazon said would make grocery shopping and delivery easier than ever is now a reality. There's a real Amazon Dash button now available from the top e-commerce site, ready for all Prime members. It was initially available last year to a select group of people invited to try Amazon Dash in San Francisco and Los Angeles. It was tested to work on the Fresh website first but you can use it now on Amazon to quickly reorder the products you regularly consume.

Micromax YU rolls out new Yu Yureka Plus, an Amazon India exclusize

If you’re not familiar with YU, it’s a brand under Micromax. And who is Micromax again you ask? It’s the company that Cyanogen partnered with instead of OnePlus which resulted to a number of issues and temporary injunctions. Amidst all these, Micromax still was able to unveil a YUreka Cynagon smartphone in India last December. A few months after, we heard a follow up phone dubbed the “Project Caesar” would be revealed.

HBO NOW already on Android, Amazon Fire devices

Network and cable TV entities have already accepted the reality that consumers are now more likely to watch their favorite programs not on standard TV sets but rather whenever they want to and wherever they are.

HBO NOW, the cable network’s Internet only service, will now be available for Android devices and Amazon Fire tablets, and soon, for Chromecast, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV stick as well.
