    New Ring Stick Up Cam coming later this year

    1 month ago - By Pocket-lint

    Now that Amazon owns smart security camera and doorbell company Ring, it used its surprise event in Seattle to announce a few Ring device updates. One of those is an all-new Ring Stick Up Cam, which will be released later this year. We don't actually know much about it at present, apart from the fact that you can have it wired or run off battery, much like the current Stick Up Cam. Strangely though, Amazon failed to mention its resolution. Considering the current version is capable of 720p video recording, we'd expect the replacement to have 1080p. It'll work with the same Ring app for...

    1 month ago - By TechCrunch

    Amazon keeps rolling out new Alexa devices this morning, with the launch of a new Alexa device - in a clock. Yes, there's now an Echo Wall Clock available that has Alexa voice capabilities built in. That means you can ask Alexa to do things like set alarms and timers - and the lines on the clock will illuminate as the time progresses. Alarms and timers, of course, are two of the most used Echo features - and a wall clock makes sense as a place where people might like to use them, or so Amazon thinks.
    The Wall Clock is designed to have an easy-to-understand interface so anyone who walks...

    1 month ago - By Pocket-lint

    Several Echo-branded devices are being announced at a special Amazon event in Seattle, including a new Echo Dot. Dubbed the "all-new Echo Dot", the new model comes with sound improvements and a fresh design. The original Echo Dot, a hockey puck-sized version of the Echo, was Amazon's most popular voice-controlled speaker.

The new one is similar but better. As with the original, you can ask Alexa to play...
