  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
