Amazon Releases 4K Fire TV Stick

Amazon just added a new model to their Fire TV line of products. The latest, a 4K version of the Fire TV Stick, will sell for $49.99. However, some analysts are saying the best part is the remote control, which now includes volume and mute buttons. Previously, these had to be controlled with the TV’s dedicated remote, but Amazon just added them to the Fire TV’s remote. So now, you don’t have to reach for a second remote when turning it up or down. The remote will also be sold separately for $29.99. For that price though, you might as well buy the whole thing. These will probably be a hot holiday gift this year.
