The Amazon Appstore has announced that it will be reducing its cut of developer revenue from 30% to 20% for developers that earn less than $1 million in revenue per year. The new terms, which Amazon is calling the Amazon Appstore Small Business Accelerator Program, will also provide developers with AWS promotional credit in an amount equivalent to 10 percent of the developer’s revenue if they earn less than $1 million in revenue per year.

Insignia releases new 2021 Fire TV Edition televisions with larger screens & increased resolution for non-4K models

Insignia, which is Best Buy’s house brand, has released a new batch of Fire TV Edition televisions as 2021 models. Like their predecessors, these new TVs run Amazon Fire TV operating system by default, which provides all the same features as a standalone Fire TV or Fire TV Stick, but with extra perks, like integrated over-the-air channels via the built-in tuner. Similar to Toshiba’s new 2021 Fire TV Edition models, which change very little over Toshiba’s 2020 models, these new Insignia TVs are very similar to Insignia’s models from last year but change even less than the Toshiba TVs. In fact, Insignia’s new 4K TVs are identical to previous models. Insignia’s biggest changes this year are found in its non-4K TVs which, finally, replace all 720p panels found in past models with 1080p screens across all sizes, even in the smallest 24-inch TVs. Insignia also increasd the screen size of its largest non-4K TV to 42-inches from 39-inches. Read more ›

Amazon Echo pair on sale for $119.98 and Echo Dot pair on sale for $49.98 — New Lowest Price Ever

Amazon has some great deals on a pair of Echos or a pair of Echo Dots for Prime members. Buying two Amazon Echos with promo code ECHOPRIME will drop the total price to $119.98. At $59.99 each, that would be the new lowest price that the Echo has ever been. I’m expecting a single Echo to be $69.99 during Prime Day next week, which is the lowest the Echo has been in the past. Similarly, buying two Echo Dots with promo code PDDOT2PK will drop them to $49.98 total. At $24.99 each, that is also the new lowest price for the Echo Dot. The lowest the Echo Dot has ever been in the past is $28.99, which is likely the price we’ll see for it during Prime Day. Echos and Echo Dots can both be grouped together to create a stereo pair if you’re planning to place them in the same room. Both the Echo and the Echo Dot can also be paired with Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks (2017 or newer) to create a home theater speaker system.

Amazon Echo Show 5 drops to $44.99 as Early Prime Day Deal — Lowest Price Ever

The Echo Show 5 is on sale for $44.99 for Prime members as an early Prime Day deal. This is the 1st-gen Echo Show 5 but there is very little difference between it and the new Echo Show 5 that was released a few days ago. The new model has a 2MP camera, in place of the 1MP camera on this model that is on sale. This discounted Echo Show 5 does have a 3.5mm audio out port, which the new model does not. Everything else is identical between the two models. This sale matches the lowest price that the Echo Show 5 has ever been.

Luna Game Controller is on sale for $48.99 as an Early Prime Day Deal — 30% off

Amazon has put the Luna Controller on sale for $48.99 as part of its many early Prime Day deals. That is 30% off its regular price of $69.99. This is also the new lowest price that the controller has ever been, however, it’s just $1 less than the $49.99 introductory price that Amazon offered customers for months after the controller launched. The Luna Controller is unique in that it can connect via WiFi directly to the internet when used with Amazon’s Luna cloud gaming service. This allows it to work for Luna gaming through a number of devices, like Fire TVs, iPhones, iPads, Android phones, computers, and more, without connecting to those devices directly. The direct WiFi connection also results in less input latency than a traditional Bluetooth connection. However, the controller does still support Bluetooth connections, as well as wired connections via USB-C, if you want to use it for something other than Luna gaming.

Amazon Luna will not require an invitation during Prime Day

Amazon will be allowing “priority access” to Luna, its cloud gaming service, during Prime Day, June 21-22. This probably doesn’t mean much to the vast majority of you reding this, since Amazon has already removed the need for an invitation if you own a Fire TV. However, if you have been wanting to give Luna gaming a try, the standard 7-day free trial will be open to all Prime members later this month.
