Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max revealed with WiFi 6, price to match

Microsoft is pushing back the ability to run Android apps directly on Windows 11 PCs, with the final feature release slate probably sometime in mid-2022.

E-commerce and online shopping platforms have opened a whole new world of products for buyers that would have never been available to them previously, but that power doesn't come without some drawbacks.
