Amazon is getting into the movie biz, kicking off a year that could see one of the biggest shake-ups for the way movies and TV are made and watched. Original TV shows and movies from Netflix, Amazon and others are set to go from strength to strength in 2015, and Amazon's movies are even planned to show up in movie theatres -- and then on your computer just a few short weeks later.

In other news, Apple has snapped up music analytics service MusicMetric, which goes beyond sales charts to track whether people are sharing, pirating or talking about a song or artist. That's the kind of information that will strike the right note if/when Beats Music is integrated into iTunes.

Starbucks wants to charge your phone as you recharge with a skinny de-caf half-caf cappucinnipaninispresso. Is wireless charging finally getting a chance to espresso itself or is Starbucks making a mocha-ry of the technology?

Google has ended sales of the Glass high-tech specs. And in space news, the British-developed Beagle 2 probe has been found on Mars, right where it was supposed to be -- but sadly broken. Speaking of space, there's talk of Mulder and Scully getting back on the case with a mooted return of classic TV show "The X-Files".

The truth is out there, so if you want to believe then hit play on the video and enjoy!
