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.
Google began pushing the Android 5.1.1 update to the Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi, Nexus 7 (2012) Wi-Fi, and Nexus 10 about a week or so ago. We know that it takes a while for the update to hit all devices, and you’re probably waiting patiently tapping on “Check for Updates.” I mean impatiently!!

Pay attention, Nexus 9 owners! The tablet is currently seeing a software update appear that brings with it…. Android 5.0.2. Oh, you probably thought that Google was finally delivering Android 5.1. Nope, not today.
Google says that performance is improved and bugs have been squashed with this update.
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.
Samsung has just begun pushing out the much-anticipated Android 5.0.1 update to all LTE variants of the Note 4 located in India. In terms of added functionality, this upgrade transports the latest build of Lollipop to the handset, as well as a multitude of bug fixes and stability improvements.
Around a month ago, LG announced a global program that would see 4000 G4 handsets placed in the hands of its fans before the official launch day. If you live in the States and you’ve been waiting for details on when and where you could sign up, you are in luck.
Foursquare has just announced that it will finally bring “global mayorships” to its Swarm application later this month. All current check-ins will now count towards a mayor badge, which is great news for all active users.
Yesterday, a report surfaced online claiming that Samsung is shipping some units of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge with its own ISOCELL camera sensor on board, instead of the Sony IMX240.
Up until today this was nothing but speculation. Read more
Sony has just announced that it is pushing out an update to its Xperia Z2 and Z3 ranges of smartphones and tablets, bringing a variety of bugfixes and tweaks with it whilst keeping the devices on Android 5.0. We have the changelog after the break. Read more
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
