This is an enjoyable movie, it brought me back to when I saw the first movie as a kid. I knew would be a big movie, but I did not think it will be the biggest movie of the summer. Here is the Ultra Violet and iTunes sticker. Here is the Jurassic World Logo Limited Edition Blu-ray 3D Gift Set. It has Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and a Digital HD and the obvious 2 Collectible Dinosaurs. It shows everything that comes in the set. A scene from the movie. And suggest that the dinosaurs can be used as book ends. Blu-ray Exclusives and additional Features and more screen shots.

Jurassic World iTunes and Ultraviolet

And I appreciate that you can get both Ultra Violet and iTunes for this digital copy. This great because your digital copy won’t be limited to one platform. On the back their is a scary close up of the Indominus Rex. The rest of the box is all black. Getting it out of the box requires a bit of care. The first thing out of the box is the disc case and the certificate of authenticity. The case feels really solid. The Indominus Rex and T. Rex have some weight. I guess that they need to have weight if they are going to be used as book ends. Now let’s take a look at the blu-ray case. It has the Jurassic World logo. The backing reiterates what comes with this disc set. I don’t know if you can see this, but this can fold out to act as a stand. Here is the digital copy info with more promotional material. Now the case here is metal. It’s a nice touch. It looks like each disc has its own sleeve. With the Indominus getting ready to have a snack. here is the 3d disc. The blu-ray sleeve has Chris Pratt with the pack of velociraptors. here is the blu-ray disc. It has the same backing on the sleeve. And lastly the DVD. It has the opening shot of the Indominus Rex hatching. The DVD has a red covering. The tin case is a nice touch. The Jurassic world logo is embossed. Now to the main event. Here we have Indominus Rex and the T. Rex. The skin has a good level of detail. Look at this detail in the skin and eyes. These are good models. You can put them into interesting poses. Here is a close up of the back of the Indominus. On the base they both have a JW imprint. This has been the WaysToWatch.com unboxing of the Jurassic World Limited Edition Blu-ray Gift Set.

Amazon Fire Tablet Review 2015 – Amazon’s Gateway Drug!!

Amazon Fire Tablet Review

With almost any Amazon product you’ll need to have a Prime membership to get the most out of it. The new Fire Tablet is powered by 1.3 GHZ quad-core processor. The Amazon Fire has a headphone jack, volume control, micro USB port for charging, and the power button.

Amazon Fire Tablet Screen

The 7 inch screen has a resolution of 1024 by 600. That’s less than 720p, so it is less than the lowest standard of high definition.

Amazon Fire Tablet Storage

The Fire tablet has 8 GB of internal storage. The Fire operating system uses about 30% of that storage.
You can take advantage of Amazon’s free unlimited cloud storage, for videos and photos taken with the Fire Tablet. Use a microSD card to add up to 128 GB of additional storage.
The battery is listed to last up to 7 hours on a single charge.

Amazon Fire Tablet Cameras

The rear camera shoots 720p HD video and takes 2 megapixel pictures. The camera can take High Dynamic Range photos, Panoramics and lenticular images. Here are a few samples. The front camera is a VGA camera that maybe good enough for skype calls. With the Fire Tablet you can access millions of movies, songs, books, and apps from Amazon. My first downloads were Netflix, Youtube and a few games.
Videos from Netflix, Youtube and Amazon Prime work well, but the poor screen resolution shows when watching video. In regards to books, there is no question that Amazon offers the best featured book reading app. A new feature is Word Runner. Word Runner allows you to adjust the rate words displayed as you read a book.

Amazon Fire Tablet Silk Browser

The Silk browser for surfing the web works fine, but can feel a bit slow. The Amazon app store offers over a hundred thousand games for the Fire tablet. And even though the games are not graphically intense they are entertaining.

Amazon Fire Tablet Performance

Overall the performance is a little bumpy, but the limited speed is acceptable. The the User Interface of the Fire tablet is simple and easy to navigate. But information is laid out differently from app to app which takes some getting use to. In a world ruled by the platforms of Apple and Google the Fire TV tablet is the ultimate gateway drug. This is a device, that if you break it, you won’t care. If your kids uses it, you will be far less apprehensive about them possibly breaking it. It is really a secret plan by Amazon for kids to get hooked on there products and services, so that when they are adults and can tell the difference between a cheap and premium device.

Amazon Fire Tablet Supported Files

Here are the file formats supported by the Amazon Fire Tablet:
Kindle (AZW), KF8, TXT, PDF, unprotected MOBI, PRC natively, Audible Enhanced format (AAX), DOC, DOCX, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, non-DRM AAC, MP3, MIDI, PCM/WAVE, OGG, WAV, M4V, MP4, AAC LC/LTP, HE-AACv1, HE-AACv2, MKV, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, HTML5, CSS3, 3GP, VP8 (WEBM)
You can watch the video on my Youtube channel!

2015 Chromecast Review

Chromecast Review

Amongst the current generation of streaming devices, Chromecast is unique in it’s approach in that it requires a device with significant computing power and it is unique with its price, costing only $35. That price is the lowest of any streaming device from any major manufacture. How much can you expect from such an affordable device? The new design of the Chromecast is simple and compact. According to Google, the circular design incorporates a stronger antenna enabling better wifi performance. On the device it has an HDMI plug and a micro usb connect for power. It connects using Wifi up to 802.11 ac. The big selling point of the Chromecast is that you can use of the computing power in your phone, laptop, tablet or computer to watch video and play games through this small device. Whichever device you use, hands the stream over to the chromecast so that you can see it on your television. All of the major streaming services have the Chromecast feature in their apps.

Chromecast on iOS

Even the apps on iOS have this option. The chrome cast will not win any awards for its gaming performance. Most of the games I came across remind of games from old school arcades. Chromecast features screen mirroring from the Chrome browser on your laptop or phone. Google says that the Chromecast maxes out at 1080p. When I tested the performance of the Chromecast I did not see anything above 720p. Now this may be limited to my test but I found the image quality to significantly be lacking. 720p looks especially bad on this 4k television. Unlike the 2015 Amazon Fire TV and the Roku 4, the 2015 chrome cast does not offer 4k video. So, if you have a 4k television the Chromecast is not a good option for you. For $35, the chrome cast is versatile and allows for you to connect every mobile screen you have to your television. I find myself being willing to overlook the weaknesses of the Chromecast, because it is so affordable. And I love that it is platform ambiguous. Whether you use Android or iOS devices you will be able to take full advantage of this device.

Amazon Fire TV (2015) Review

Amazon Fire TV 2015 Review

This is the WaysToWatch.com review of the 2015 Amazon Fire TV. Does it live up to the hype? How does it rank amongst the new streaming devices from Google and Apple?

Amazon Fire TV Design

It features the same design from the previous model. There is not much more than a square box. But who cares about the exterior? It is about how it feels and performs.

Amazon Fire TV Remote

The remote is well made, but there are issues with the back of the remote. It is hard to remove it. After working through the back of the remote, the remote actually feels really good in my hand. It works well and is really responsive. The iOS Fire TV App is helpful and easy to use.

Streaming On The Amazon Fire TV

It performs well for streaming, but is limited when it comes to gaming. Amazon’s ASAP feature aims to eliminate buffering time by assuming what you will watch. Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime work on Fire TV. If you have a Plex Media Server, good news, the Fire TV can stream movies from the server.

Alexa on Amazon

Amazon’s Alexa voice service can play music, do searches, check sports scores, and provides weather forecast.

X-Ray, FreeTime On The Amazon Fire TV

Another feature from Amazon for the Fire TV is X-Ray. X-ray gives you information about a movie or TV show, like which actors are in a particular scene. Parent can use FreeTime as their parental control tool. All of the main streaming services are available on the Fire TV. The user interface on the Fire TV can be confusing, overall it is a decent streaming box.
