In a logical move that may make waves in the Set-Top Box Market, Amazon has decided to stop selling the Apple TV and Google Chromecast products. The reason that this is considered a logical move is that Amazon is trying to increase the sales volume of their own Amazon Fire TV Stick. You wouldn’t expect to go to the Apple website and have your pick of their competition’s products, so Amazon.com was sort of unique up until now in that respect. Hopefully for their sake this move will give them the results they were hoping for.  For an under-educated consumer who has not yet used either of these Set-Top devices, they may all seem to be relatively the same on the surface. Each one of them lets you share screens from other linked devices, such as computers or phones, but each one also links to its own manufacturer’s preferred content delivery system. For Apple, their Apple TV links to the App Store, Google’s Chromecast links to Google Play, and Amazon’s Fire TV Stick links to Amazon Prime.
