One of the hottest gadgets of this holiday season, the Transformer Prime (see our preview and review), is scheduled to be released the week of December 19th - that would be any day now starting today. In anticipation of the launch, Amazon re-launched pre-orders for all four color/size combinations after they went dark, disappeared completely, and even got cancelled in some cases shortly after the first wave was sold out. Update #1: ASUS issued the following statement today: ASUS started filling the inventory pipelines this past week for our new Eee Pad Transformer Prime and will continue to do so on an expedited basis for the foreseeable future.

A year after Amazon announced it would resume selling Google Chromecasts, the streaming pucks are finally available to buy from its store, reports Android Police. Originally, Amazon had said that selling a streaming device that didn’t support its own Prime Video streaming service would cause “customer confusion,” and it also banned sales of the Apple TV for the same reason. Last December, Amazon finally released an Amazon Prime Video app on the Apple TV, but its mobile app continued to lack Chromecast support. Despite this disparity, Amazon later announced that both the Apple TV and Chromecast would be returning to its store, although it’s taken a year for the one without Amazon Prime Video to actually do so. Although this particular proxy battle is now over, the cold war between Amazon and Google continues. As a case in point, the official YouTube app is still absent from the Amazon Echo Show as well as Amazon’s Fire streaming devices. Google pulled the … [Read more...] about Google’s Chromecast returns to Amazon, but it still lacks Prime Video
Amazon Prime is Amazon’s deluxe subscription model that initially only offered free two-day shipping on select items when it started. However, it has since expanded quite a bit into a slew of varied services that run the gamut from books to movies to, yes, additional shipping perks. Sign up for Amazon Prime (free 30-day trial) This gradually increasing range of services was precipitated by a price hike in 2014 from $79 per year to $99 per year. In response to this adjustment, many Prime users really started to wonder if it was worth keeping their membership.

On Feb. 23, the second part of season 1 of "The Tick" will stream on Amazon Prime. I'm not the biggest fan of breaking up seasons like this and am curious if it results in more views or not. Anyway, Amazon has the fourth season of "Mozart in the Jungle" coming up as well. It's a show I have yet to get really into since there are some NSFW scenes (and I tried to watch it at work). As for movies, "Logan Lucky" might be one of the bigger, more recent titles to hit a streaming service. It's a Steven Soderbergh movie where a heist is taking place during a NASCAR race. In my head, this movie is clearly "Cars" meets "Ocean's Eleven."
