Google needs to learn from Amazon on how to build products for kids

We want the best for our kids, and right now that means we buy from Amazon.

The Amazon Fire TV Cube and Roku Ultra.

Can Roku’s simple interface compete with the likes of Amazon Fire TV? Actually …

When I think about price and power, I’d tend to put the Amazon Fire TV Cube in the same sort of bucket as the the Roku Ultra. Never mind that they’re actually $ 30 apart. (Roku definitely comes in lighter on the wallet.) And never mind that Amazon Fire TV is  [Read More…]
