Watching streaming video

I recently got myself an Amazon Fire Stick. It is a very simple device that plugs into the HDMI port in your television and connects to a power socket. Using Wifi and various apps available for it, it can stream a lot of content from around the world.

I have watched a lot of stuff since I got the device - House of Cards, Silicon Valley, Inside Edge, The Crown. Its an amazing device with the simplicity of any Apple product. 

I remember reading about television content that you could watch at your own convenience long, long back in a book. To me, at that time it seemed almost impossible. And here I am actually using such a device. The pace at which technology is progressing is almost mind-numbing. I recently was told about a blog called Wait, but why? In it the author writes some really amazing stuff about how technology is changing our world and the rapid pace at which this is happening. I am going to write a complete post about that some other day.
