Prior to becoming a Nest-owned company, Dropcam released Dropcam Pro as its flagship camera in October 2013. At that time the regular Dropcam remained available at a $50 discount to its new counterpart.

Fast forward to today, Dropcam has announced that it will discontinue support for all models other than the Pro version as of April 15th. But instead of leaving its first customers out in the cold, Dropcam has announced a free upgrade program for the original Dropcam and Dropcam Echo.

Google has just launched a new offer that extends a free $20 Google Play credit to anyone who purchases a Chromecast by December 21. According to the offer details, only Chromecasts purchased between December 7 and December 21 will be eligible for the free credit, but we were able to take advantage of it on our previously purchased Chromecasts.

Amazon is following up its $99 Fire TV streaming media player with a $39 streaming HDMI stick, which is similar to Google Chromecast (reg. $35, on sale for $28 w/ $5 credit) and Roku Stick ($49).

According to Amazon, the Fire TV Stick has 4 times as much storage (8GB) and 2 times as much memory (1GB) of Chromecast. It’s also the only one of the big three streaming sticks that packs a Dual-core processor, which Amazon says “results in faster and more fluid navigation.”

amazon-fire-tv-roku-chromecast-compareFire TV Stick includes a physical remote, which doubles as a gaming controller. Aditionally, for a $30 up-charge, you can outfit your Fire TV Stick with a voice remote to take advantage of Voice Search. A free remote app is also available now for Android and will be landing on iOS shortly.

Available streaming content includes: Netflix, Prime Instant Video, Hulu Plus, WatchESPN, NBA Game Time, Prime Music, Pandora, Spotify, and more for instant access to shows like TransparentHouse of CardsOrange is the New BlackGame of Thrones, and The Wire—plus the largest selection of movies and TV episodes to rent or buy from Amazon Instant Video.

ASAP (Advanced Streaming and Prediction) allows for instant streaming by automatically buffering videos the Fire TV Stick predicts you’ll want to watch. Amazon also promises future support for WiFi networks with captive portals like hotels, airports, college dorms, and more.

First TV Stick is available for preorder now for $39, but Prime members (free trial) can get it for just $19 for the next two days.

For the next 48 hours, the Amazon App Store for Android is making 31 popular apps and games available for free. This package of apps would cost over $100 if purchased individually at their standard rates.

Amazon hasn’t fluffed this promo with poor titles either. Some of the best known apps include Plex, The Room Two, Slashtop Remote Desktop HD, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek.

While you’re at the Amazon App store you might as well pick up the free app of the day too. Today’s app is the “thrilling, action game,” MacGyver Deadly Descent.

If all these downloads are chewing up too much space on your phone or tablet, then head over to the Amazon Gold Box deal of the day and save up to 70% off select Sony memory cards.
