Firefox is now on Amazon Fire TV, can play YouTube

Firefox is now on Amazon Fire TV, can play YouTube

The back and forth between Google and Amazon has become both entertaining and also frustrating for consumers. It is the common folk who get caught in between the clash of the titans and, at least for Amazon Echo Show and Fire TV users, that meant being deprived of the time-wasting joys of YouTube. While peace negotiations are supposedly on the way, hope comes from a new, outside source. Mozilla has just announced that the Firefox web browser is now available on Amazon’s Fire TV platform and, yes, it can play web videos, including YouTube.

The Last Jedi’s adorable Porgs are more than just a cynical merch play

The Last Jedi’s adorable Porgs are more than just a cynical merch play

While there's a fair amount of debate going on about Star Wars: The Last Jedi as a whole, one of the most divisive components of the movie are the presence of Porgs. Like Ewoks before them, Porgs represent the cute side of Star Wars, a side that's proven to be controversial among some of the series' most die-hard fans. While it's tempting to think that Porgs were added to the movie just because Disney saw a new merchandising opportunity, it turns out that their development is a little more complex.

Caavo universal remote is finally coming seven months later than promised

Caavo universal remote is finally coming seven months later than promised

Our homes are getting more complicated. Never mind the variety of mobile devices and even smart appliances. Just the circus of set-top boxes, consoles, hubs, and other entertainment devices that may make our TV areas look more like cyberpunk shelves and desks. Earlier this year, Caavo promised to put all those in order with one box and one remote to rule them all. It may have spoken too soon, however, as the product won’t actually be shipping until early 2018.

Magic Leap demo is exactly what the AR startup didn’t need

Magic Leap demo is exactly what the AR startup didn’t need

Three years after we first started reporting on Magic Leap, and they've got some semblance of a real product. This company suggested that they had tech nearly ready for a broad scale release back in 2014, but now, hear near the end of 2017, they still don't really have a product that can be purchased. There's a good reason for that, apparently. They're working behind the scenes with groups like ILMxLAB for Star Wars and the always futuristic experimental music band Sigur Rós.

Radio Flyer Star Wars Landspeeder Review

Radio Flyer Star Wars Landspeeder Review

I had the opportunity to review the Radio Flyer Landspeeder (from Star Wars) this late Fall, and I must say: It's pretty neat. It's not the sort of thing you'd buy if you're looking to roll out on the road - it's not big enough for that. It's not the sort of thing you buy if your kid is reckless - it is a vehicle, after all. This machine is, instead, the worlds most adorable Star Wars gift on wheels.

Disney-Fox deal prompts antitrust criticism

Disney-Fox deal prompts antitrust criticism

Big news was made last week when it was announced that Disney plans to buy almost all of 21st Century Fox for a whopping $54 billion. While it's interesting to think of iconic properties like The Simpsons joining Star Wars in House of Mouse, and Marvel fans are likely excited at the potential for the X-Men and Deadpool to finally join the MCU, the deal is yet another example of a single monolithic company gaining more control over an industry.
