Amazon Prime Instant Video vs the competition

Posted in Amazon by Conner Flynn on February 24th, 2011

Amazon’s Prime Instant Video service is here, but how does its content measure up to the competition? Clicker.com has the answers and has created this handy chart to help sort out the detail. Netflix has a lot more content right now, that’s for sure, but the Amazon service compares more closely to Hulu Plus than anything else.

It’s a good start for Amazon though even though Amazon’s movie selections are lacking in high profile movies not already on Netflix, it does have some unavailable episodes of Mister Rogers Neighborhood, Bonanza and Dr. Who (1963), so that’s something. It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

Here’s another entry from Microsoft’s Next-Gen PC Design Competition. The AlphaGrip Handheld Computer (or AlphaGrip HC, for short), features full-size rocker keys on the front with a flip-up display and a keypad for thumb-typing. It also has a trackball for mousing and some buttons for “sophisticated PC games”.

Thing is, you may have noticed two things, both unappealing: It’s bulky and the top is shaped somewhat like a heart. I can’t imagine ever using this in public, but despite that fact, I like it. It took some imagination and looks a lot like the Atari Jaguar.
