Amazon TV set top box may use NVIDIA GRID to initiate cloud gaming

When the folks at Lab126 (Amazon’s "inventive research and development company") started work on a set-top box, it’s said this week, it wasn’t the same dongle we’re being tipped on this week. What’s being tipped this week via TechCrunch is a stick that’s essentially the same size as Chromecast, shipping with support for a massive amount of media - and not just TV shows and movies.
