Amazon filed a patent for a YouTube-like competitor

Firefox for Fire TV

The chances of Amazon directly challenging Google with its own "non-downloadable pre-recorded audio, visual and audiovisual works via wireless networks on a variety of topics of general interest" would be something of a leap.

In an effort to compete with video streaming service YouTube, Amazon has applied for a trademark this week called, "AmazonTube" and "OpenTube" as the company's public spat with Google continues to grow.

Coinbase halts transactions amid probe into possible Bitcoin Cash insider trading
Armstrong says that his goal to to make Coinbase the easiest to use digital currency exchange that customers trust the most. Bitcoin Cash first surfaced online back in August when a group of developers "forked" the Bitcoin blockchain.

The trademark does suggest ingredients that make it up to be a video streaming service although there isn't a lot of detail on this.

The whole controversy started when Amazon removed Google Chromecast from its official website in 2015, stating that the move was meant to avoid confusing customers who would expect Amazon Prime Video service to run on Chromecast.

British Columbia bans grizzly bear hunting
The province said staff will also be implementing recommendations made in a report released in October on grizzly bear management. Throughout 2016 alone, 235 grizzly bears were killed in B.C, 30% of which were female. "We couldn't be more thrilled".

Amazon has filed for AmazonTube trademark in its quest to rival YouTube. The former began selling Chromecasts on its platform again and the two are said to be in productive talks to bring YouTube back to the fold. In the filing, Amazon describes it as a software or mobile app that can be used to transmit, receive, upload, download, encode, decode, stream, share, and broadcast content, images, videos, and more. Amazon has made a new announcement wherein the company claims that its Silk browser has been optimised for Fire TV with the kind of user interface wherein individuals can search, browse and even launch curated bookmarks for the internet. Amazon may also be trying to ensure that if Google pulls the YouTube app from other Amazon devices that they have a backup plan to keep customers happy. We will never know about their decision for now.

This does not necessarily suspend the problem regarding accessibility for Amazon Fire TV users. Now, it seems that Amazon is planning to introduce its own YouTube-like service as the fight between the two giants intensify. "Starting today, we will be able to expand the already great Fire TV experience by enabling viewers to surface a multitude of web content - including videos - through Firefox".
