Next time you fly with JetBlue, there will be another option for video streaming. The airline has partnered with Amazon to bring its Prime Instant Video catalog thousands of feet into the air. Passengers, subscribers to Prime or not, can access Amazon’s selection of television shows, documentaries, and movies. The difference is that Prime subscribers can stream eligible content at no cost at all while non-Prime subscribers must pay Amazon’s asking price as they would anywhere else. Also, passengers can stream music at no cost because Prime Music is covered as well.

Passengers do not have to pay the usual $9 per hour fee that JetBlue normally asks for when streaming video.

Hit the break for the full press release.

Samsung to Enhance Camera Features with Android 5.1.1 on Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

Samsung Galaxy S6

A wise man once crooned, “I’m King of the Mountain” (and he was), and Samsung is like unto said wise man in this regard – the unquestioned lord of its domain. Though the Galaxy S5 is largely seen as a disappointment, the S6 and S6 have been met with some of the best reviews in Samsung’s history. It’s too early to report actual sales, but there’s buzz about these devices.

The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge also happen to boast one of the best cameras in all of mobiledom, with a great (if saturation-happy) sensor, and a camera app robust with features, yet still simple enough for lay users to harness.

Not surprising: HTC revenue plummeted in April due to lack of demand for the One M9

At the end of February, I wrote a little piece on how HTC was pretty much screwed with the One M9 since they failed to capitalize when Samsung was more vulnerable. Now the numbers are in proving my prediction.

The One M9 debuted at the beginning of April so you would think that HTC might have gotten a little boost, but they didn’t even get that. Their revenue for the entire month plummeted by almost 40% to NT$13.54 billion ($439.95 million US) from NT$22.07 last year. If you compare it to the previous month, the drop is 32.36 percent since March posted NT$20.02 billion. Read more
