Does Amazon have something up their sleeve?

The rumor of the week is that Amazon is working on their Amazon Prime and has something big in store. The rumor is that Amazon is working with major TV and movie channels to bring their services to Amazon and will be offering different bundling packages with different services. It will be interesting to see how this all pans out but if Amazon could add live content to their service it would be something that sets them apart. VentureBeat has the rest of the details.

Citing “people with knowledge of the plans,” Bloomberg said that Prime subscribers will soon be able to add additional online subscriptions to their account — “including major, well-known movie and TV channels,” while Amazon will also sell other bundles featuring different channels and services.

It’s not clear what these additional bolt-ons could be yet, but with TV networks showing increasing signs of nervousness at the surge in popularity of on-demand TV, Amazon could be preparing to strike deals. Indeed, just a few weeks back, Time Warner revealed it was considering holding back its better content from streaming services such as Netflix.

Apple to Ditch the Headphone Jack

Jason predicted that Apple would drop the headphone jack soon - and we thought it may happen with the iPhone 6S. For that model, the 3.5mm jack has stayed intact, but it appears that with the upcoming iPhone product in late 2016, the headphone jack has been removed. Your listening options are now limited to Bluetooth - or what Apple is really banking on - proprietary Lightning Connector all digital headphones. Of course these will sound better than analog headphones. Wait, sound is analog. So it will still get converted to analog waves - just not in your playback device. It will happen in the $500 Beats headphones instead.

The so-called "iPhone 7" will likely be more than 1mm thinner than the 7.1mm thick iPhone 6s as a result, according to the report. The sixth-generation iPod touch could be a comparable device, with a depth of 6.1mm, but the portable media player still has a 3.5mm headphone jack.

ADATA @ CES 2013

We had the chance to sit down with ADATA at CES 2013 and check out the latest and greatest from them. ADATA is most famous for their DDR memory, Flash drives, SSD’s and memory cards and over the years we’ve had the chance to take a look at a few of them and have always been happy with the performance and quality. ADATA has a full lineup of SSD and memory products on display. one of which is their lineup of M.2 (NGFF) SSD drives which are designed for things like Ultrabooks where a full 2.5" drive just won't fit.


This year at CES ADATA is showing off a new product, the DashDrive Air. The DashDrive Air is a great portable device that can wirelessly transfer files to and from a SD card to your smartphone (Android or iOS). The DashDrive also has a battery inside which allows you to charge up any USB device. If thats not enough for you, the DashDrive Air can also act as a wireless hotspot and share a wireless connection with up to 8-10 devices (depends on model of DashDrive). The DashDrive Air comes in two models, the AE800 (which features an internal 500GB hard drive instead of having to use SD cards) and the AE400 (which is a bit smaller and uses an SD card for storage). The combination of a power bank, wireless hotspot, and wireless file storage makes this a very interesting product and could make it a great travel accessory.
