Word on the street is that Apple’s about to launch a revamped Apple TV, but as it stands today, Amazon may have just captured the TV media center crown. The new Amazon Fire TV ($99) mixes Apple TV functionality and a gaming machine in one device, powered by a quad-core processor with a dedicated GPU and 2GB of memory. You have access to all the media streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, ESPN and of course Amazon Prime, but you also have the ability to play games with a special controller – one that’s large enough that it won’t disappear in your couch cushions for weeks on end like the minuscule Apple TV remote. The icing on the cake: voice search, allowing you to avoid the on-screen keyboard.
