Amazon Fire TV Cube Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

Amazon Fire TV Cube Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours
Amazon already lists a couple of Fire TV models, with the basic £39.99 (US$39.99) Fire TV Stick and the £69.99 ($69.99) Fire TV with support for 4K video. Now a new model is coming soon: the Fire TV Cube is a set-top box that will be both seen and heard.

The company has already acknowledged the existence of such a device on its site, and AFTVNews has shared an image of what the Fire TV Cube is likely to look like.

Though Amazon has not confirmed any specs for the upcoming box, AFTVNews says it is in essence an Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick and IR emitter all in one. 

The Fire TV Cube is expected to support 4K HDR video at 60fps, and builds in far-field mics, a speaker and an LED light bar. From the image we can see four top-mounted buttons that appear to offer volume and mute controls, plus an action button to physically call up Alexa.

There will be a bundled Alexa voice remote, as with other Fire TV devices, but you'll also be able to talk to Alexa without it as you would on an Echo Dot.

When is the Fire TV Cube coming out?
According to AFTVNews the new box will be available in late-2018/early 2019. No pricing has been confirmed, but given that it combines the functionality of Echo Dot and the Fire TV Stick we would expect it to also combine the price; we're likely looking at around £90-£100 ($90-$100).

Vorwerk Kobold VR300 Review

At nearly £1000, does the VR300 offer enough to justify the purchase when you can pick up a robot vac for £100s less? Find out in our Vorwerk Kobold VR300 review
Should I Buy The Vorwerk Kobold VR300?
It’s expensive, but the Kobold VR300 provides an impressive vacuuming experience that we think could rival that of a conventional vacuum cleaner, but it’s not as smart as some rivals – yet. The low-profile design, upgraded SLAM technology and D-shape design allow the VR300 to safely navigate around obstacles and reach every last nook and cranny.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
