NVIDIA Shield Pro Android TV Update Includes Builtin Plex Media Server, Remote File Access & More
location: droidfarm.com - date: June 9, 2016
The latest (version 3.2) update to the NVIDIA Shield Pro Android TV will offer up several cool new features. The biggest game-changer included in the update is that you can now use your Shield Pro Android TV as a Plex Media Server. The Plex server on the SHIELD will be capable of the same things the current version is. You will even be able to stream remote devices across the Internet using your Android TV interface. Of course, to take advantage of the Plex server functionality, you will either want to have the larger 500GB version of the device, or attach an additional external USB Hard Drive to the Shield.
There's a second big feature that this update brings and that is the ability to browse the SHIELD's file storage from a local PC. This remote file access works with the SHIELD's internal storage or any volume added to adoptable storage, although a MicroSD card or any other external storage will not be available over the network. However, The SHIELD can now m

Verizon Moto X 2nd Gen Gets an Update That is NOT Marshmallow
location: droidfarm.com - date: April 13, 2016
What are they thinking? That's the only question we can arrive at when we see that Motorola has pushed out yet another update for the Verizon Moto X 2nd gen which is NOT Android 6.0.1. When will they finally get the gooey Marshmallow goodness for one of the best Motorola devices? This device is not shown on their Marshmallow update schedule, so the answer is probably just "never." This just leaves us scratching our heads in frustration.
At least they are plugging the security holes... VZW
Here's our dedicated Moto X 2nd gen thread for further discussion: Moto X (2nd Gen) 2014 Edition

[Review] Amazon Echo.. A Perfect 10
location: droidfarm.com - date: November 20, 2014
Meet your new friend Echo, er, Alexa
When Amazon announced the Echo recently, many didn’t know what to make of it. The cylindrical tower is an audio system that is always connected to the web. It can stream music from Amazon’s Prime Music library, Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and play local music collections. With the integrated Bluetooth, the Echo can play music streamed from local devices. The Amazon Echo is a decent audio system at its base level, and so much more.
When I first tried to describe the Echo to my non-techie friends, they ended up confused. I changed tactics and began simply describing the Amazon Echo as a “tower of Siri”, and everyone got it.
Those who feel strange constantly calling "Alexa" to get the Echo’s attention can change the trigger to "Amazon." That might be necessary for buyers with another Alexa in the family. Having tried both names, I found constantly calling out "Amazon" to the room to be somewhat creepy,
OUYA Delayed to June 25; Gets Another $15 Million in Backing; Bing Gordon Joins Board
location: droidfarm.com - date: May 9, 2013
We have a triple play story for you guys today for OUYA. First, the OUYA will be delayed a bit. Instead of launching on June 4th, they have pushed things back until June 25th. There are two reasons for this: One, they are working out a sticky controller button issue. Two, they wanted to make sure they ramped up production levels to create a smooth retail launch because demand outpaced their original projections. That seems like bad news wrapped in good news a bit.
The second news bite is obviously good news. OUYA has garnered some big attention and has now received another $15 Million dollars in financial backing. The venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers has led an investment drive worth $15 million for the project. Along with this piece of news is the third morsel. Included in this new influx of investment capital a pretty big name in the gaming industry has joined OUYA's board of directors, ex-Chief Creative Officer of EA Bing Gordon. He
Amazon Echo Turned On By Itself
location: droidfarm.com - date: December 29, 2014
Hello all, new member here. Just wondering if anyone has experienced their Echo turning on by itself yet?
I've had Echo for about 3 weeks now and haven't had any issues until about 30 mins ago. I am the only one home and Echo turned on by itself at full volume playing a radio station. I couldn't turn the volume down manually or by asking "Alexa" to turn it down, so I had to unplug her.
Amazon Echo 10 Day Review
location: droidfarm.com - date: December 1, 2014
After being one of the first websites in the world to post a hands-on preview and first impressions of the Amazon Echo hands-free device, we wanted to do a follow-up to share our final thoughts after spending 10 days with it. Here's a quick breakdown review:
As an audio device, the Amazon Echo, aka Alexa (which is the command word to activate the device), is actually very good. It fills a good sized room with rich sound. It has decent clarity in the treble range without being too "tinny" and its mid-range volume is superb. The Echo actually has some decent bottom as well, although it obviously can't dish out very deep bass because of its compact size.
The best part of the audio capabilities is that you can operate it completely hands-free. This includes the volume controls, starting and stopping, shuffle, changing the music and more. You can either let it stream music that Amazon has in their collection, or you can have it stream the music
New features launched for the Amazon Echo
location: droidfarm.com - date: January 31, 2015
I just received the email from Amazon mentioning some updates for the Echo.
Dear Amazon Customer,
We hope you're enjoying Echo. We're working hard to add many of the features you've asked for, and we would like to update you on two new features.
Voice control for Spotify, iTunes, and Pandora: You can now enjoy hands-free voice control for these popular music services. To get started, simply connect your phone or tablet to Echo by saying "Alexa, pair my device." After you start playing your music, you can easily control it by saying the wake word and: play, pause, stop, next, or previous.
Simon Says: You've likely heard some of Echo's jokes—now there's another way to have fun with Echo. You can get Echo to repeat whatever you have in mind by starting with "Alexa, Simon says…" Here's a fun tip: you can covertly use the remote control from another room to get Echo to repeat what you say and surprise your family.
