A Quick Tour of Amazon's New "Fire TV"

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Wed, Apr 2, 2014 at 1:59 PM

Gizmodo has a pretty thorough article today on the new Amazon Fire TV streaming box—which retails for $100 and might finally replace your love for getting neck cricks while watching TV on your laptop. It apparently fixes all the problems with Apple TV, Chromecast, and Roku—terrible search systems, slow gaming, etc—and presents it all in a very easy to use format that includes Netflix, Pandora, Hulu Plus, Crackle... but sorry, no HBO GO. It also features "voice search" (which might actually work), gaming apps from EA, Disney, and more (played with either the remote or a more classic style controller you can get for 40 bones extra), and... DOUBLES AS A KARAOKE MACHINE??? I am so in!! (Maybe I'm not... but I'll think about it!) Much more info here, but check out Gizmodo's quick video tour of the system.
