Amazon announces unlimited cloud storage plans — yes, really

Amazon announces unlimited cloud storage plans — yes, really

Here’s the thing about cloud storage: you have to pre-determine how much storage you want. Sure, you can upgrade or downgrade, but sometimes not at the drop of a hat. Also, our needs change. One day you might be fine with 100GB of cloud storage, but that upcoming trip may see you needing a lot of room for your photos and videos. Rather than juggle different storage options, Amazon is just giving you unlimited storage. Starting today, Amazon will have two tiers of cloud storage, both offering unlimited upload.

Amazon slams FAA drone delay with international shaming

Amazon slams FAA drone delay with international shaming

Thought Amazon would be ecstatic the FAA had given it permission to test its Prime Air delivery drones? Think again: Amazon execs have slammed the US government agency, despite finally getting the green-light. The Federal Aviation Administration delivered what it thought was good news last week, telling the online retailer that it could cautiously try flying its remote-control delivery drones in US airspace as a prelude to perhaps one day dropping off packages from the sky. Instead, it opened a can of worms, with Amazon claiming the FAA's tardiness meant it had already scrapped the prototype.

Fire TV, Fire TV Stick update brings hotel WiFi, Bluetooth headset support

Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire TV Stick might have entered the streaming game later than we’d have liked, but their hardware is still pretty effective. A new update, rolling in today, might even make one or both must-haves for wider audience. With expandable USB storage on the Fire TV, users can expand their library as they see fit. Other tweaks, like better WiFi connectivity for hotels and Bluetooth headset pairing options put Fire TV and Fire TV Stick a bit above the competition.

Amazon drones get FAA test approval (but don’t get excited)

Amazon drones get FAA test approval (but don’t get excited)

Amazon has been granted special permission to test its drone delivery service, but while the FAA may have given PrimeAir trials the green-light, don't expect it at your front door any time soon. PrimeAir was announced in late 2013, Amazon's grand scheme to deliver smaller packages by remotely-controlled drone within thirty minutes of an order being placed, but in addition to doubts around whether the project was practical, the Federal Aviation Administration took a dim view of commercial UAV use. Now, the leash has been loosened a little, allowing Amazon to at least begin conducting feasibility trials.

Amazon brings Prime Now to Baltimore, Miami

Amazon brings Prime Now to Baltimore, Miami

Stuff you order online, delivered to your door in about an hour. While nobody was certain anyone could do for — well, just about everything — what Dominos did for pizza, Amazon has. In December, the company unveiled Prime Now delivery in Manhattan, which brings things Amazon deems ‘essential’ right to your door. The limited availability and app were as much beta as rollout, which obviously paid off. Today, Amazon is announcing they’ll bring their Prime Now delivery outside of Manhattan, with Baltimore and Miami joining in the one-hour-or-so delivery fun.
