Amazon’s second Fire TV is a $39 streaming stick to take on Chromecast

On Monday, Amazon announced the Fire TV Stick, a $39 streaming stick that runs the full Amazon television interface that first debuted on the Fire TV earlier this year. […] The new stick doesn’t require a second device, like a smartphone or tablet, to beam video from. Instead, it comes with a remote and can run apps like Netflix and Prime Instant Video on its own, like the full-sized Fire TV. In that way, it’s more similar to the $50 Roku Streaming Stick than Google’s Chromecast. In fact, Amazon is directly comparing its streaming stick to the Chromecast and touting its relative computing power: The Amazon product page brags that Fire TV Stick has “4x the storage and 2x the memory of Chromecast.” – Kif Leswing, Gigaom
