The Razer Forge TV – the same one we fell in love with at CES 2015 – actually went up for pre-order on Amazon yesterday, but was quickly pulled back out for reasons still unknown.

Amazon offers unlimited cloud storage plans

But with the amount of media and data files that we collect everyday, mobile users are now looking for those that will be able to offer more than that.

Amazon Appstore to offer paid apps for free

While most Android users still get their apps from the Google Play Store, online retail giant Amazon is still trying to make their mark through their own Android-based appstore. They know the only way to attract users to them is by borrowing a little something from how Amazon has lured consumers to their site: through discounts, freebies, and sometimes, even more "disruptive storefront promotions". It looks like they'll be continuing with this strategy as they're preparing to launch an "Unlocked" section in the appstore.

But now Motorola is widening their reach, with both confirmed and rumored news.

Bootloader unlock for Kindle Fire HDX tablet now available

In this case it is Amazon’s proprietary Fire OS. Nothing against the concept of tweaked Android stuff, because we love that. It’s just the locked bootloader on the tablet – which means you can’t easily change software – that tick us off.
