Amazon's first self-branded Fire smart TVs are cheaper than you'd expect

It was inevitable. After making a house brand of low-price Android tablets, then expanding into streaming boxes and even the software powering smart TVs themselves, Amazon is ready to cut down out one more middleman. Today the company announced its first Fire TV models, smart televisions branded by Amazon with Fire software and Alexa assistants built right in. The Omni and 4-series TVs will go on sale within the next month.

Firefox is ending support for Amazon Fire TV and Echo Show devices

Firefox is ending support for Amazon Fire TV and Echo Show devices

Starting on April 30th, 2021, Mozilla will no longer support Firefox on the Fire TV or its Echo Show.
