And it does for this market what the Kindle Fire did for tablets: It provides a credible entry that is tied to Amazon's exhaustive digital media ecosystems but also open to third party apps and services. That said, it also has the same issue as the Kindle Fire tablets: It's more than a bit too Amazon-centric.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/music-videos/amazon-fire-tv" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/music-videos/amazon-fire-tv#comments amazon Android Mobile devices Games Music & Videos Mon, 07 Apr 2014 14:38:00 +0000 37801 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Opens Build 2014 with Windows, Windows Phone Updates http://winsupersite.com/microsoft-opens-build-2014-windows-windows-phone-updates <div class="node-body link-body">In a rousing opening keynote for its Build 2014 conference here in San Francisco on Wednesday, a series of Microsoft executives pulled out all the stops, announcing new products, upcoming initiatives, and some amazing giveaways for show-goers.

And this past week, I used my Xbox 360 for the first time since the Xbox One came out. Your mileage may vary based on how you use the console, but for me, it was a bit surprising how little different the experience was.
