Amazon’s Fire TV experience is an all-in-one way to watch television shows, movies, and more. The platform is getting better, with a user interface update coming today. The update, announced back in September, brings a redesigned home screen, a new search experience, and user profiles to make life easier. First and foremost is the redesigned home screen, which takes the cake as the best part of this update. Amazon described it as “the single destination for you to access all of your fave content.” From here, you can bounce between TV shows or movies over to the main menu that has options such as “Find, Live, Library” and pinned apps that you want easy access. The... Read more...
Have we all gone a little stir crazy yet? It comes with the territory of a pandemic, but if you are looking to turn lemons into an excuse to spend more time playing games (you thought I was going to say lemonade, didn't you?), then check out these deals on some big name titles that are on sale. Among them is Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projeckt Red. Granted, we are not talking about a massive discount here, but you can save $10 and change on one of the most highly anticipated games of the year. It is marked down to $49.94 at Amazon (17% Off), for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One... Cyberpunk 2077 for PlayStation 4: $49.94 at Amazon (save $10.05 - 17% Off) Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox One: $49.94 at... Read more...
The calendar lies! By that I mean, it shows Black Friday and Cyber Monday having already passed, but then how do you explain a $500 discount on an OLED TV that is primed for gaming on next-gen GPUs and consoles? Oh yeah, it's because this has become an entire season of sales, which means you need not fret if you missed out on the barrage of bargains last week. As for that hefty discount, it applies to LG's 55-inch CX-Series OLED TV, which is on sale for $1,496.99 at Amazon (Save $500 - 25% Off). It got a little lower during Black Friday, but the current discount is still a big one, and for one of the most desirable TVs on the market right now. And not just because it is an OLED panel—which... Read more...
Back in late November, we brought you news of Amazon Sidewalk, which is a new initiative from the company that allows smart devices that would typically be on the edge of Wi-Fi range limits (or completely out of range) to piggyback off a nearby, internet-connected device. As a result, a neighbor's Echo Dot or Ring Spotlight Cam could provide internet connectivity for the Ring Floodlight Cam that you want to install on the exterior of your backyard shed. What Is Amazon Sidewalk? “Sidewalk-enabled devices connect to Sidewalk Bridges to access the network," Amazon explained at the time. "Customers with a Sidewalk Bridge can contribute a small portion of their internet bandwidth, which... Read more...
As we get closer to the Christmas holiday, the frequency of delivery trucks coursing through your neighborhood has no doubt spiked. If Amazon's own Prime delivery trucks aren't wheeling down the streets stopping at every other house, there's bound to be frequent activity from USPS, FedEx and UPS trucks as well. Walmart is attempting to battle the dominant Amazon Prime service during the lead-up to Christmas, and it is doing by dropping the $35 order minimum for Walmart+ subscribers on its website starting December 4th. With the $35 minimum now gone, you can purchase as little or as much as you want and get free next-day or two-day shipping on your items. This compares favorably... Read more...
When it comes to development, if you want to make sure your program runs on all hardware with as many operating systems as possible, you need to do testing across all platforms. This can be an incredibly daunting task, but development can be cheaper and easier than ever with cloud-based solutions. Amazon is now offering AWS EC2 Mac instances for anyone to create and test Apple apps with ease. Amazon Web Service’s (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud, or EC2, is an easy and secure way to deploy “resizable compute capacity in the cloud.” There are many compute components with Amazon EC2, which now includes Apple hardware and software. Inside each Mac instance, you will get an actual Mac... Read more...
If you're big into Fortnite and also just so happen to fancy the Nintendo Switch, there's a new console bundle available today that might interest you. Nintendo has launched a Fortnite-themed Switch console that is currently available from the usual suspects like Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and GameStop. Unlike the Switch + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle that launched for Black Friday, this one is actually in stock (for now). But whereas the Black Friday bundle got you a free digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and 3 months of Nintendo Switch Online for the regular $299 price, this new Fortnite bundle is decidedly less ambitious. Nintendo Switch Fortnite Wildcat Bundle $299 @ Amazon Nintendo... Read more...
It's Cyber Monday, which means that now's the time to score great deals on all kinds of tech products. Right now, we have a slew of deals for you on Samsung devices including smartphones, tablets, and even smartwatches. There's something in here for everyone, so read on to get details on what's cooking today. Galaxy Smartphones To kick things off, Amazon is discounting unlocked Samsung Galaxy smartphones by up to 33 percent, and there are savings of up to 25 percent on its current generation flagships. For example, the Galaxy S20+ has a list price of $1,199.99, but is available today for $899 ($300 off). If you want to step down just a bit, the regular Galaxy S20 is priced at $749, which is discounted... Read more...
Worried about an opportunistic thief stealing your delivered packages while you are away at work? I've previously suggested building a moat and filling it with lava, but if that is too much work, setting up am armed sentry is another option. But again, there could be legal issues there. So another route is a Ring Video Doorbell, which is one of several hardware devices marked down at Amazon for Cyber Monday. That's right, Black Friday is over and we have now transitioned to Cyber Monday. And let's be real, the deals will not end on Monday, as this has become a seasonal thing. As it applies to the Ring Video Doorbell, you can get the latest 2020 model for $69.99 at Amazon (save $30 - 30% off).... Read more...
Any of the Amazon Fire series tablets could make an excellent gift for yourself or others this holiday season. You can use them to read books, watch movies, play some games, or catch up on shows such as the Mandalorian on Disney+. If you want to pick one up, Amazon has them on sale for Cyber Monday a little early, so get one now while you can. The Amazon Fire tablets are Amazon’s foray into the tablet market, and they are undoubtedly bang-for-buck devices. All the Fire tablets have at least a quad-core processor and 16GB of expandable storage, if not more. Also, with displays at 7” or greater, they could be great for reading a book or letting your kids watch YouTube. If this sounds... Read more...
Black Friday has officially come and gone, but there are still many Amazon Black Friday deals around. Samsung, Beats, Logitech, and other big brands are offering discounts on various items from headsets and earbuds to computer mice. To top it all off, all of these deals qualify for Prime Shipping and many include free returns. Here are some of the best Black Friday tech deals you can still grab on Amazon right now. This year there appears to be quite a few discounts on earbuds. The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Plus are on sale in black, white, red, and blue. A single charge provides up to 11 hours of music, while three minutes of charging will get you an hour of listening time. They are $109.99 USD.... Read more...
Now that you are stuffed with turkey and all the fixings, it is time to pivot into shedding whatever extra padding you might have accumulated over Thanksgiving (or maybe that's just me). A great place to start is with a good set of earbuds. To that end, I can personally recommend Apple's AirPods Pro, which are both excellent and deeply discounted right now. You can score the AirPods Pro for $169.99 at Amazon, which amounts to a sizeable $79.01 discount (32 percent) over the list price. This Black Friday bargain beats the previous low price, when these earbuds were marked down to $194 earlier this month. At $169.99, this is lowest price they have ever been, and are worth every penny. The big upgrade... Read more...
Smart TVs are hot ticket items this year for Black Friday, and it’s easy to see why. Prices have dropped dramatically on large screen panels, with 4K TVs measuring as big as 65 inches falling well below the $300 mark. This is good news for folks out there that don’t have a lot of money to burn, and just want the most bang for the buck when it comes to screen size and decent image quality. While we could spend all day laying out deals on high-end QLED or OLED panels that retail for $1,000, $2,000 or even $3,000+, we’re going to focus on budget Smart TVs offering under $500 that should still be pleasing to all but the most upper-crust pixel snobs. Insignia 32-inch Fire TV... Read more...
For those out there looking for solid wireless earbuds with great features that won't bleed your wallet dry, Amazon has some great Black Friday deals on Jabra wireless headphones and buds that you'll want to check out. Jabra's full range of wireless audio products are discounted, with the biggest price break being reserved for the Elite 85h. These wireless, over-the-ear headphones are typically priced at $249.99, but are now available for just $149.99 ($100 discount) at Amazon. That pricing extends to all colors including Titanium Black, Navy, Gold Beige, and Copper Black. The Elite 85h's are rain and water resistant and feature smart active noise cancellation. They also provide up to 36 hours... Read more...
Here we go, folks. Black Friday week is upon us, which means the deals are kicking up a notch. You can expect a steady stream of bargains throughout the week (and beyond), and as usual, Amazon is on the front line with deals galore. In this roundup, we have a bunch of discounted Echo and Ring Video security devices to share. Shown above is the Echo Show 8, on sale for $64.99 (down from $129.99). As the model name suggests, it sports an 8-inch display with an HD resolution (1820x800) for making video calls (or use it to see who is standing in front of your Ring Video Doorbell). It also features a 1MP camera with an on/off switch for the camera shutter, volume controls, and four integrated microphones.... Read more...
Staying at home all the time can get pretty boring, especially if you are streaming TV shows and videos from online services like Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, and every other provider that has thrown their hat into the streaming ring. If the lack of a streaming stick is holding you back, let's fix that. Ahead of what is actually supposed to be Black Friday, there are deals to be had on a whole bunch of options. Shown above is one of the cheapest options—it is Amazon's Fire TV Stick Lite with Alexa Remote Lite, on sale for $17.99 (save 40 percent). It is a quick, simple, and effective solution to get streaming. This stick is powered by a quad-core processor and can pull and display content in... Read more...
Black Friday is fast approaching, but that hasn't stopped retailers and companies from offering their own early discounts ahead of next week. The latest company to jump on the bandwagon is DJI, which not only makes popular aerial drones, but also stabilized cameras that you can use to capture action shots. The first big discount comes on the Mavic Mini, which is DJI's entry-level drone that still packs quite a punch. You can get the standard Mavic Mini, which comes with the drone, a remote, and a battery for $359 (which represents a $40 discount). However, we think that your best course of action is to go with the Mavic Mini Fly More Combo, which adds in two extra batteries, a battery charging... Read more...
Whoever buys the most stuff wins, right? Maybe not (definitely not), but if 2020 taught us anything at all, it's that the world is probably going to end soon anyway, so you might as well splurge. This is the best time of the year to do that, incidentally, with Black Friday right around the corner. As in, tomorrow. Say what now? The official Black Friday date is still over a week away, sure, but Amazon today announced it will begin serving up Black Friday deals tomorrow, November 20. Buckle up. According to the announcement, these "epic deals" will run through November 27, which is the actual Black Friday. But who are we kidding? Black Friday has become a season of savings, and I'm willing to... Read more...
The deals are starting to pour in even though Black Friday is still 12 days in the distance. But as we have seen over the last few years, retailers are pushing out bargains increasingly earlier to get a jump on what has become a sales season, and no longer just a weekend spanning Black Friday through Cyber Monday. Amazon in particular has been an active participant, and if you are in the market for a wearable like an Apple Watch SE (shown above) or Fitbit, you are in luck. The recently announced Apple Watch SE is on sale for $289 at Amazon (down from $309) for the 44mm version, and $229.99 (down from $279) for the 40m version. Apple designed the SE model as a more affordable alternative to the... Read more...
Black Friday might technically be a couple of weeks away, but you can start saving on various purchases right now. We have been highlighting different tantalizing deals that have appeared early, like 70-inch TVs priced as low as $399, and a free Google Stadia bundle for YouTube Premium subscribers. And the deals keep coming. If it is a storage product you are after, a bunch of WD and SanDisk media is marked down by up to 60 percent ahead of Black Friday. Be advised that, as currently advertised, these are a collection of "Epic Daily Deals," meaning they are one-day discounts. It is possible some of the same products will get marked down again this month, but if you see something that catches... Read more...
If you we were one of the few that managed to get in a preorder at Amazon for an Xbox Series X, you probably considered yourself lucky. After all, preorders sold out quickly, and it's likely that there won't be sufficient stock available until sometime in 2021. However, some people that preordered from Amazon won't be able to enjoy launch day bliss, as their console isn't arriving today as initially promised. Instead, Amazon sent an email to some unlucky customers to inform them that their Xbox Series X console might not arrive until December 31st at the latest. What's even more infuriating for these customers is that Amazon didn't even bother to send this email to customers until... Read more...
Strap yourself in and get ready for a whirlwind of sales, folks, because we are more than a week into November and barreling towards Black Friday and Cyber Monday. That is when things will get especially frenzied. However, the closer we get to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the more we are seeing early bargains, like the roundup of discounted big screen TVs we highlighted yesterday. And today? You can snag a set of Apple AirPods Pro earbuds for less than $200. These were a good deal when they fell to $200, and now they are even better buy at $194 on Amazon (save 22 percent). These ship from and are sold by Amazon, rather than a marketplace seller, and you get free one-day shipping if you are... Read more...
