Amazon now accepts pre-orders for Echo from non-Prime customers

Have you ever imagined Siri or Google Now outside of your smartphone and into a speaker? Well, that's exactly what Amazon Echo is. The voice digital assistant has been around since November of last year, but it was only limited for Amazon Prime customers.

Lollipop-based Amazon Fire OS 5 launched in developer preview

In terms of hardware, Amazon’s set of Android devices can actually compete, but they lag behind competitors primarily because of their approach to the software area of the devices. They use the heavily tweaked and proprietary Fire OS, a version of Android that does not allow for Google Play Store access. The software has continued to languish in KitKat land, but users should be relatively happy Amazon is now rolling out the Fire OS 5, albeit in a developer preview for now.

But of course we know they won't take it lying down, and their recent announcement may just be the first salvo to improve their delivery service. They are now making same day delivery free for Amazon Prime subscribers.

Amazon Game Studios releases new game–Til Morning’s Light

If you may remember, Amazon formed its very own game studio last year to develop and bring exclusive content for the brand's Android devices. Aptly called as Amazon Game Studios, the team has recently released a new game that lets the player unravel the mystery of a 200-year old curse. Til Morning's Light will probably make you play the game for hours until..well, the next morning as you strive to explore and finish all 100 unique rooms in different locations.

Google Buy Button coming soon to your search results

Have you ever wished that when you digitally search for something, for example, a geeky shirt or a hard to find book, that you'd be able to buy it directly from the results page, rather than having to click on so many things before you can actually make a purchase? No? Well, Google is about to make that come true as they will reportedly be introducing the Buy Button to your search result page in the very near future.
