Video: Amazon Echo Review (In 90 Seconds)

Video Transcript: Guys whats up it’s Chris from DailyTekk and this is the review of the Amazon Echo.

Alexa how’s my commute today? Echo is a treasure trove […]

The St. Louis-based company announced Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013, the frown-faced Internet sensation, real name Tardar Sauce, is now the "spokescat" for a Friskies brand of cat food.

Amazon Crime: It Took 97 Minutes For Amazon To Admit They Were Screwing Me

“Some people definitely do use it that way,” says Ryan, an Amazon support representative I spoke to by phone. “It is an apology for a negative experience. It sounds like exactly like you put it: they were just throwing it out there just so you would stop bugging them.” I knew it! I’ve become sadly […]

Twitch TV is an independent platform owned and operated by Amazon.com and is the latest in online video and media streaming. First introduced back in 2011, it has since emerged as a seminal platform that is used primarily by video gamers, and it is part of a wider trend for cross-platform gaming that integrates desktops, […]

Surprise! Amazon Prime’s Dirty Little Secret

Free 2-day shipping. It’s the basis of what makes Amazon Prime worthwhile and awesome. 2 days isn’t all that long to wait for an item; it’s short enough that I often order an item on Amazon instead of heading to Target or another store if I don’t absolutely need it today. But yesterday Amazon threw […]

Audible.com: The Audiobook Service I Love and Hate Simultaneously

Audible.com has been serving up audiobooks since 1995, so it’s hardly new. I remember checking it out when it first came out, thinking it would be something cool to try out and then realizing, “Oh dang, that’s crazy expensive.” Well, guess what, now that I’m older and wiser, it still seems crazy expensive, but I […]

Kindle Fire HD vs New iPad is No Contest for iPad

This weekend I spent some time getting to know the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ for the first time. We didn’t get along too well. At first glance I thought, “Hmm, this thing doesn’t look half bad.” It was a decent size and was not all too thick (or thin) and hey, it came from the […]

I Wish Best Buy Would Live On, But Here’s Why It Will Die

Oh Best Buy… the last bastion of electronic superstoreness left over from the good ol’ nineties. How I mourn thee. People have been calling Best Buy Amazon’s showroom for quite some time now in jest, and, while that might be true to some extent, the thing Best Buy really has going for it is that […]

Sketched: Kindle Fire HD vs iPad (Prediction)

Amazon just launched a few new Kindle devices. Jeff Bezos has stated that he wants to make money when customers use his products, not when they buy them. The problem is, people will choose iPads over Kindles almost every time. Sketched is a fresh take on tech news and commentary. This is sketch #2. Created on […]

I Just Bought 80 iPads and Returned 20 Kindle Fires

I recently purchased 80+ iPads and 30 or so Kindle Fires for a group of employees at work. Some people got iPad 2s, but most people got the New iPad (or iPad 3, as most people still call them in conversation) and a few people got Kindle Fires. An interesting thing happened… people were given […]

Amazon, Jeep, Apple All Guilty of Blatant False Advertising

I am incredibly sick and tired of false advertising (Wikipedia). Sometimes it’s so wrong it’s actually funny (not when it’s targeted at you of course), but most of the time it is aggravating, infuriating or downright pathetic. In the last 24 hours I’ve been blasted by false advertising from well-known companies. False advertising can cost brands millions, […]
