Cyanogen’s next step: A BLU phone without Google apps

After amassing $80 million in funding, even without Microsoft's help, and being valued at close to $1 billion, the tech world is keeping a close eye on Cyanogen, Inc. That, of course, is no reason for outspoken and, dare we say, almost belligerent CEO Kirt McMaster to start treading lightly and mincing words. In fact, he has fighting words: "We're putting a bullet through Google's head", which is no small undertaking. And it's all going to start with a smartphone that won't have any of Google's popular apps installed.

Amazon partners with 3 campuses in bid to entice college students

Kindles may come in handy for literature and other linearly consumed print media, but textbooks are something many still prefer in physical form, and many students turn to Amazon to get them. The company is apparently looking to capitalize on this, as it has just unveiled its new Amazon Campus service in partnership with a trio of higher education institutions: Purdue University, the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and the University of California Davis.

Amazon is gunning for movie studios next

Amazon's ambitions in original content are climbing up a notch, with plans to create a dozen movies each year that will not only be released via its Prime streaming service, but in theaters as well. The aggressive content scheme will kick off this year, Amazon has said, with Amazon Original Movies also using its heft to trim the amount of time it takes for theatrical releases to make it to on-demand services. Rather than anything up to a year between films being screened in theaters and then showing up at places like iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon's own download store, the retailer's homegrown content will take a mere 4-8 weeks.

Amazon Fire Phone goes on fire sale

As Android phones go, the Fire Phone is not the best. It’s not even close, and many would consider Fire OS and the Amazon App Store very un-Android. A world of its own, the Fire Phone launched with big hopes, and crashed hard almost immediately afterward. A mis-fire, Amazon was able to write down $170 million on their last earnings call due to the Fire Phone’s existence. Now, it seems the company is just trying to unload the device, and has cut the price drastically.
