Updates : Three new capabilities
I've always been fascinated by trying to find the least cost item to do the job! The Barnes & Noble Nook tablet was on sale for $30 and presented an opportunity and challenge (covered in previous posts). The Nook can be sluggish and I have now found that it is better to use websites and bookmarks than apps, especially for News. The bookmarks can be added to the home screen to look like apps.
Some new sources use up-to-date HTML 5 coding and some do not. These news sites actually adapt themselves to the small screen without further ado. These include the Washington Post, Reuters, Bloomberg, the Guardian, NPR, BBC, Google News, and MSN.
Kindle Fire TV
The Kindle Fire TV stick now has been greatly updated. Not only that, but an adapter is available to bypass Wi-Fi and assure a smoother internet connection.
Alexa in the Car
A car adapter is now available to make it possible to do those things by voice, using Alexa. Tap or click for the adapter.
