        The maker of the popular "Roku" media boxs for T-V is pushing a new, smaller product.
        The "Roku Streaming Stick" is a 50-dollar device that plugs into an H-D-M-I port on almost any newer T-V.
        It allows you to stream wireless content from Roku apps, including Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime.
        Roku's Streaming Stick will compete with Google's "Chromecast" -- which came out last year.
        Sony says Playstation Four has topped 6 million consoles globally.
        It's been available here and in Europe since November.
        The P-S-4's biggest competitor is Microsoft's X-Box One.
        The Jawbone's Up Band has been around - with much popularity - for a while. Now, they're targeting our addictions with the app "Up Coffee." The reason is simple. The more you track your consumption, the more aware you'll be of your over use of caffeine.
        Here's how it works. Enter your drink choices as you make them throughout the day. The app will track the increasing quanity of caffeine in your body through simple ratings: edgy, wired, or sleep ready.
        And - if you go to have another cup of coffee - the app will advise whether that's a good idea or not. That's based on your caffeine consumption so far that day.
