Tech Bytes: Target to no longer accept checks

In today's Tech Bytes: The Xbox TV app is making its way to Amazon devices, CMF is launching a line of cheaper smartwatches, Target is no longer accepting personal checks.

Microsoft launches its Xbox TV app on Amazon devices. Subscribers can now stream games on certain fireTV sticks. This marks the first time the Xbox app is available on a non-Samsung device.

Budget friendly brand CMF is launching a line of less expensive tech products. Their smart phone costs $200, the Watch Pro two is $69, and the Buds Pro two are $59. The devices will be available starting July 11th.

Target is cutting checks from checkout. Starting July 15th, Target will no longer accept personal checks in stores. The retailer says the change will simplify the checkout process for customers, who can still pay using digital wallets, cash, and credit cards. Whole Foods and ALDI also stopped taking checks, but you can still write a check at Walmart.
