Amazon Fire TV 
Amazon has just released the Fire TV, the company’s Apple TV, Google Chromecast and Roku competitor. In short, it’s a $99 Android based set-top box for streaming movies and TV shows as well as playing games with the dedicated Fire Game Controller (sold separately for $ 40). The Fire TV has integrated voice search and being an Amazon product, extra care has been taken in order to make the company’s Prime Instant Video streaming service run smoothly on the device. The other usual suspects such as YouTube, Hulu and Netflix are also available. HBO Go is however currently missing from the lineup.

iPhone 6 component photo may reveal major design overhaul | BGR

An image showing the purported digitizer of the iPhone 6 seems to reveal the size of at least one upcoming iPhone version, although the image can’t be confirmed yet. The photos first appeared on Chinese forum WeiPhone, but it’s not clear exactly how the original poster obtained the images.

True or false — It looks pretty cool.

Chromecast now open to developers with the Google Cast SDK | Google

The Google Cast SDK is simple to integrate because there’s no need to write a new app. Just incorporate the SDK into your existing mobile and web apps to bring your content to the TV. You are in control of how and when you develop and publish your cast-ready apps through the Google Cast developer console. The SDK is available on Android and iOS as well as on Chrome through the Google Cast browser extension.

If it doesn’t take too much effort to include support for Chromecast in iOS and Android apps, our favourite HDMI dongle is about to get a lot more useful.
