Amazon owns up to Fire Phone failure, blames pricing

They say it takes guts to admit to one's mistakes, and Amazon is certainly showing it has some. David Limp, the company's Senior Vice President for Devices has publicly admitted that the company fumbled and bumbled on its first Fire Phone, but it is putting the blame squarely on price tags only. And even with that minor, if you could call $170 million "minor", miscalculation, the company isn't ready to throw in the towel and will continue to iterate over the smartphoe until it gets it just right.

Amazon steps up the Google competition with Fire TV Stick

Amazon might have stumbled a bit when it went out of its comfort zone with the Fire Phone, but that isn't going to stop the giant from taking risks, especially when it comes to its more established markets of video streaming.

The company has just launched the Amazon Fire TV Stick, a familiar HDMI dongle that is unabashedly poised as a Chromecast, and a Roku Streaming Stick, killer.

Amazon Fire Phone not on fire, revenue takes a hit

Amazon just made its earnings conference call today and things are not looking good for the retailer giant. The company reported a staggering third quarter loss of $544 million, compared to last year's loss of $25 million from the same quarter. And the culprit? Both surprisingly and unsurprisingly, it is the Fire Phone that is to blame, at least according to some company reps. The rather eccentric smartphone has apparently cost Amazon a $170 million writedown in addition to supplier commitment costs.
