Yesterday

Behind the Screens is a weekly 9to5Toys series that takes you through our writers’ setups, be it mobile, desktop, gaming or home theater. Next up is Damien Wilde, Videographer at 9to5Google.

I’ve been lucky enough to always have my own dedicated workspace. But last year I finally moved out of an apartment into a proper house, which means I’ve gained a much larger office space to really work with. Honestly, I’d have to say that it’s still a major work in progress, but it’s getting there slowly but surely. Unlike vast portions of the US, space is at a real premium over here in Leeds, UK — where I’m based. This means I’ve really got to work with what I have available. Access to IKEA is definitely not a problem though! So almost all of my office furniture has come from the Scandinavian brand — I really adore the simple aesthetics and basic colors.

August 17

Amazon seems to be ever looking to expand its businesses. Just yesterday we reported on the potential Amazon has for acquiring Landmark Theaters, and today its rumored that Amazon is working on a device that has the ability to record live TV, letting users play content back on phones and other devices at a later time.

This rumored device will take on the likes of TiVo, and would potentially give the company a run for its money. Amazon, who produces its some of its own Prime content, could really benefit from this function.
