Amazon has grown to become one of the best one-stop shops in the digital realm to find just about anything someone might want, from groceries to gadgets.
Amazon unveiled Fire TV Stick, a media streaming HDMI stick, to take on Google’s hugely popular Chromecast and Apple’s Apple TV.
Just like Chromecast, Fire TV Stick will allow users to plug it into the HDMI port of their television to stream multimedia content from Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, low-cost movie rentals, live and on-demand sports, music, photos, games, and more.
Amazon makes a late entrance into the highly competitive smartphone market with the Fire Phone, but early reviews of the device suggest that most users are better off sticking with a competing device. The general consensus among reviewers is that the Fire Phone does not have enough differentiating features over an iPhone or Android-based smartphone.
