Update. It's a fight. Google vs. Amazon. We lose.

"The Amazon vs. Google Feud, Explained (and How It Affects You)"

"We’ve been trying to reach agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to each other’s products and services. But Amazon doesn’t carry Google products like Chromecast and Google Home, doesn’t make Prime Video available for Google Cast users, and last month stopped selling some of [Google-owned] Nest’s latest products. Given this lack of reciprocity, we are no longer supporting YouTube on Echo Show and FireTV."

"Users Lose as Amazon and Google Fight

There’s nothing illegal about any of this. Google can block Amazon’s products from accessing YouTube if they want to, and Amazon can refuse to sell specific products if they want to. But it sure is bad for users."

No matter who wins, users will pay for this. And the inconvenience it caused will affect the user experience, this is undoubtedly bad news.Hope they will think about it and correctly handle this matter.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
