Today, Amazon absolutely scorched Google and Apple Inc. by banning the two companies’ streaming TV products from its marketplace. Amazon says it’s “to avoid customer confusion.” Third party sellers just received an email from Amazon with orders to clear out their Google Chromecast and Apple TV inventories by October 29. […] It’s kind of amazing, when you think about it. If Apple and Google don’t want to play nice and support Prime video, then Amazon doesn’t want to play nice and carry their stupid products. Amazon even made a point to say that Roku, Xbox, and PlayStation products wouldn’t be affected by the ban—presumably because they do play nice. – Adam Clark Estes, Gizmodo
