  1. Amazon Continues To Make Even Bigger Enemies, Is Not Selling Captain America And Other Disney Properties

    Hail Hydra, I guess.

    In the past few months Amazon has very publicly made enemies with several of its business partners, but the online retailer isn't done sullying its image--fans hoping to order titles such Maleficent, Muppets Most Wanted or Captain America: The Winter Soldier from Amazon are out of luck, at least until Disney cries "uncle."

  3. FAA Kills Amazon’s Drone-Delivery Plans, and Our Dreams of Robots Bringing Us Stuff

    If a robot can't bring my late-night impulse buys then what's even the point?

    Ars Technica is reporting that the FAA has shot down Amazon's plans to use pilot-less drones to deliver packages. The issue could be revisited soon, but for now it seems Amazon and any other companies planning on using drones for commercial purposes are out of luck.

  4. Product Review: How the Amazon Fire TV Holds Up Against the Apple TV

    It's a video streaming box fight to the death! (Or a simple comparison.)

    Amazon recently offered Prime members a 30-day in-home trial of their Amazon Fire TV. When the Fire TV was announced it looked like Amazon had one-upped Apple in the set-top box department, but after a month of having both boxes hooked up to my TV it became clear that there were some shortcomings. So how does the Fire TV really hold up?

  5. What’s The Hold-Up On That Netflix Original Star Trek Series?

    Viacomkhaaaaaaan!

    Earlier this month Larry Nemecek disappointed many of us by debunking a rumor that Netflix and CBS were in talks to produce a new Star Trek series. Sigh. But it seems the dream may become a reality yet!

It's really impressive stuff.

    Is everything Fire with you now, Amazon?

    Rumors pointed to today's big Amazon announcement being a new smartphone with a Nintendo 3DS-like glasses-less 3D display, and the rumors are true (at least some of them. The event is ongoing so we're updating as we go..) They've introduced their own smartphone, the Amazon Fire Phone.

  9. Amazon Patented Taking Pictures In Front of a White Background

    Negative Space has been added to your cart

    The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is an easy punchline for jokes about bureaucratic inanity, but a recently-granted patent proves that reputation is deserved. Turns out Amazon has patented taking pictures in front of a white background, so I guess Shutterstock is doomed.

  10. Amazon Wants You To Add Stuff To Your Cart Using Twitter Hashtags Because Clicking is Hard

    Modern life is so difficult. What do you mean I can't shop online using only my subconscious thoughts?

    Let's say you see somebody talking about an Amazon product on Twitter, and you want to buy it. In order to do that, you have to click on the link, and then click on the "Add to Cart" button, and then complete your purchase. Ugh. Think of all the tweets you're missing when you do that! There's got to be a better way!

  11. Newly Amazon-Acquired Comixology Eliminates Store from iOS Apps, Surprising No One

    Insidery

    When it was announced that Amazon had acquired digital comics retailer Comixology, we knew there would probably be some changes coming down the pipe, and the first have arrived. They finally updated the front page of PullList.Comixology.com! Just kidding, I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who's excited about that. What really happened was that they released a new version of their iOS app that removes the ability to make in-app purchases of comics.

  12. HBO Shows Will Finally Be Available Online to Non-HBO Subscribers, But There’s a Catch

    the internet is serious business

    Or, I should say, HBO shows will finally be available online legally to non-HBO subscribers. Because, while it's technically illegal for someone who doesn't get HBO to log into someone else's HBO GO account, it's not like that ever stopped anyone. But HBO GO isn't the subject of this news. Nope. HBO's getting in bed with the Overlord of the Internet: Amazon. Edit: This just in: According to Variety HBO's Amazon deal does not include Game of Thrones. Ditto Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Sex and the City, which have other U.S. syndication deals. And "new and future shows," including True Detective and Silicon Valley, are excluded under the current deal as well. Thanks, HBO.

  13. HBO Signed an Exclusive Deal With Amazon Prime That’s So Close to Being Great News

    Now will everyone stop whining about the Prime price increase?

    Piracy runs rampant on shows from premium networks, and no one knows that better than HBO. Game of Thrones continues to break piracy records, and HBO has finally, mercifully made a deal with Amazon to stream HBO content to Amazon Prime members... at least three years after they air on television, because patience is the Internet's strong suit.

  16. Gary Busey Stars In This Amazon Fire TV Ad And It Actually Makes Sense

    A bit derivative of Anchorman, sure, but it has a real narrative!

    Usually when I see Gary Busey on camera, I react similarly to how I might if my late grandpa had ever wandered into a commercial set -- so a lot of "Oh no, he must be so confused, let's get him back in his chair at home!" But this Amazon Fire TV spot leans into Busey's penchant for acting a bit nutty, and the end result is just delightful.

  17. It’s a bird! It’s a Video Game! No, It’s the Amazon Fire TV Set-Top Box, Watch out, Apple

    Shots fired.

    Amazon got into the set-top box game today with a competitor for Roku and and Apple TV in the form of Amazon Fire. They're at a disadvantage with being comparatively late in the game, but Amazon is aiming to build on the shortcomings of those other offerings with its new box, and they're shipping today.

  20. Vagina Toaster Gives New Meaning To Breakfast In Bed

    Quit playing with your food.

    Normally when you see a vaguely vaginal pattern on burnt toast it says more about whatever issues you're repressing than how your toast was made. But Burnt Impressions, a novelty toaster company (people have too much time on their hands) from Vermont, has forever changed the Rorschach Test that can be breakfast with their Vagina Toaster.
