What is all that noise and hullabaloo? It sounds like Amazon introducing the all-new Echo Buds that are smaller, lighter, and produce better sound for just $119. Announced today, the new Echo Buds have a wealth of new technologies which make them better than before. The big selling point of the new Echo Buds is that they are 20% smaller, lightweight, and IPX4 rated, meaning they can withstand splashes, sweat, and light rain. This means they can go nearly wherever you go and should be comfortable and hopefully imperceptible throughout the day. The earbuds also come with four ear tip sizes and two wingtip sizes, so you can customize them for your best fit and seal for audio quality. Making sure... Read more...
Peace of mind is certainly worth something, and if that happens to come with a home security system, it is more than worth it. However, security systems are not normally cheap, but Amazon has some systems from Anker on sale, which could save you up to 25%. These deals will not last long, so get peace of mind on a budget today. Up for grabs on Amazon are two security system kits from eufy Security, an Anker company. The eufyCam 2C Pro, with either a three camera kit or four camera kit, boast an 2K resolution for seeing great detail in recorded video. Moreover, the cameras come with infrared night vision and human detection technology, meaning you can capture footage day or night and get an alert... Read more...
The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro were first announced just over a week ago, and we followed up with our review of both smartphones. Today, however, marks the flagship Snapdragon 888 devices' official launch, and here's where you can purchase them in both unlocked and carrier-locked form. You can get the base OnePlus 9 unlocked direct from OnePlus, or you can choose to go with Amazon or Best Buy. Amazon only offers the OnePlus 9 in Winter Mist, while both OnePlus and Best Buy offer Winter Mist and Astral Black. The price at each store is $729.99, which is value-priced for a Snapdragon 888-powered flagship smartphone. OnePlus 9 $729.99 8GB RAM 128GB Unlocked @ Amazon OnePlus 9 $729.99 8GB RAM 128GB...

Amazon has grown leaps and bounds since Jeff Bezos ran the operation out of his garage in Bellevue, Washington. Moving beyond just book sales, Amazon is a massive outfit that dominates the e-commerce space, and one of the challenges is finding room for all of its inventory. One possible solution is to sell overstocked items in brick and mortar stores at reduced prices. While nothing has been decided, Amazon moving into physical retail spaces for this kind of thing would not be a stretch. The company already operates over 100 physical locations, including stores and over half a dozen pop-ups in malls. And of course it bought Whole Foods Market for $13.7 billion in 2017, which itself has a footprint... Read more...
Amazon’s public image has not been all that great lately, with biometric surveillance leaving delivery drivers stressed to the max and long-standing reports swirling of workers needing to urinate in bottles to meet internal performance metrics. It appears that Amazon is trying to fix its image by using community engagement tactics on Twitter, but it may invoked the Streisand effect. The ecommerce giant -- and second-largest employer in the United States -- really came under fire during the past week after a series of reports pointed out Amazon's seeming reluctance to let workers go to the bathroom without penalty. After Amazon directly denied a report alleging that some workers... Read more...
If you're in the market for a no-frills tablet that will handle all your media consumption duties (and more) but don't want to spend hundreds of dollars, we have a great deal for you today.  The current-generation Fire HD 10 was launched back in 2019 and carries a retail price of $189.99. However, Amazon is currently selling the tablet with a 43 percent discount ($82 off), bringing it down to just $107.99. The latest Fire HD 10 has, as you might expect, a 10.1-inch Full HD+ display (1920x1200, 224 ppi). Powering the tablet is a 2GHz octa-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. The version on sale today comes with 64GB of onboard storage, although you can boost that capacity further... Read more...
Amazon delivery drivers will have a tough choice ahead if they want to continue working for the retail giant. Starting this week, Amazon is requiring delivery drivers to agree to a "biometric consent" form giving the company permission to use surveillance equipment installed onboard all its delivery vans to track activities (inside and outside the vehicle) and even their behavior while driving. This move comes after a February report confirmed that the surveillance system manufactured by Netradyne, called Driveri, is designed to "[improve] driver behavior" and monitor behavior such as speeding, making illegal U-turns, braking too hard, and failing to acknowledge stop signs. The system can... Read more...
Intel's Rocket Lake-S family of processors is launching next week, and pricing for the existing Comet Lake-S family has fluctuated quite a bit during the lead-up. Some popular Comet Lake-S processors are dropping down to [near] all-time lows at Amazon to make room for the new crop. Amazon is currently discounting Core i9-10900KF, Core i7-10700KF, and Core i5-10600KF LGA-1200 processors. As you may recall, the "KF" designation means these processors have their onboard GPU disabled, necessitating a discrete GPU. However, given that gaming enthusiasts likely already have Radeon or GeForce graphics cards on-hand, this shouldn't be too much of a concern. At the top of the... Read more...
A week ago, we brought you news from an incredibly reliable tipster that the PlayStation 5 would be in stock on Thursday morning. And sure enough, Target had a significant amount of PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition consoles that were available for in-store pickup if you were lucky. That same tipster, Jake Randall, has now confirmed when the next significant PlayStation 5 drop will occur. Randall teased the Amazon drop last week, and today he affirms that it will happen this Thursday (March 18th). The online retail giant will have a total of 46,000 consoles available to purchase, split between 18,000 PlayStation 5 Digital Edition and 28,000 PlayStation 5 consoles. Randall... Read more...
Last year, the Sony's WH-1000XM4 wireless headphones leaked early, and then officially launched with solid features that put them ahead of the pack in a lot of areas. Now, Amazon is offering up these headphones for sale at 21% off, bringing them down to a relatively palatable $278.00 price point. Though that may still seem like a bit of coin for headphones, what you get out of these may be more than worth it in the long run. Sony's WH-1000XM4 headphones took some design cues from its predecessor, but they have some rather nice new features. First up is what Sony calls “Industry-leading noise canceling with Dual Noise Sensor technology.” These headphones use two microphones on... Read more...
Over the weekend, we started to turn the corner concerning Zen 3 processor availability. Ever since AMD's Ryzen 5000 desktop processor family launched late last year, they've been in short supply. Early pricing was through the roof, with chips selling for well over MSRP. The Ryzen 7 5800X was the first Zen 3 processor to become widely available at its MSRP, and now it's the Ryzen 5 5600X's turn. The Ryzen 5 5600X has an MSRP of $299 but routinely sells for between $350 and $400 due to supply issues. But right now, you can head right on over to Walmart.com and purchase the Ryzen 5 5600X for $299.99 with no strings attached.  Even Amazon, which has struggled to keep the Ryzen 5600X in...

If you've been trying to score a PlayStation 5 since launch but have struck out at every possible opportunity, we've got some good news for you. It appears that Target is getting ready for a big console drop this later this week, so you're going to want to be on your toes in the early morning hours. According to console tracker Jake Randall, Target stores nationwide are starting to receive inventory for both the standard PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition. For those that don't know, Randall has been on the money in recent weeks (and months) with PlayStation 5 availability, specifically from Target. So, when he says he has inside info, we listen. Randall notes that based on the... Read more...
Tomorrow, the OnePlus 9 family of smartphones will launch. The impending arrival of a new generation of smartphones means that prices are starting to drop considerably on the current-generation devices. Such is the case with the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, which are available at a hefty discount from Amazon. At the lower end of the spectrum is the OnePlus 8T, which has a list price of $749. However, Amazon is currently selling the smartphone for a low $599.99, a $149 discount off the regular asking price. The price is available on both the Aquamarine Green and Lunar Silver edition of the OnePlus 8T. OnePlus 8T Aquamarine Green 12GB/256GB $599.99 @ Amazon OnePlus 8T Lunar Silver... Read more...
If you've been itching to build a new PC around Zen 3, or upgrade an existing one, good news—at least one of AMD's latest generation of Ryzen processors is markedly easier to obtain at the moment. There is still a silicon shortage affecting the general landscape (PC processors and graphics cards, as well as the latest generation game consoles). But the Ryzen 7 5800X appears to have broken through and is now widely available. Will it last? Good question, and only time will tell. Having said that, the Ryzen 7 5800X has sporadically popped up on retail shelves more often than the rest of the Zen 3 stack and other hardware that is in short supply. And as of this writing, it is available to... Read more...
If you're looking for a great, all-around 5G smartphone that will be supported for years in the future, Amazon is currently running a great deal on the Google Pixel 4a 5G. The smartphone was initially launched last fall alongside the more expensive Pixel 5 and is powered by Qualcomm's mid-range Snapdragon 765G SoC. The Pixel 4a 5G launched at $499 but is currently available for just $449 at both Amazon and B&H Photo, representing a $50 discount. Besides the Snapdragon 765G, you'll also receive 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and a 6.2-inch FHD+ (2340x1080) display. Instead of a massive central notch or thick bezels, the Pixel 4a 5G features a simple hole punch cutout for the 8MP... Read more...
Late last year, Amazon announced its Luna game streaming service to compete with Google Stadia and Microsoft Project xCloud. Previously, it was an invite-only “early access” program, but after months of feedback and improvement, the gaming platform will be available to new customers. Today, Amazon announced that Fire TV customers can download the Luna app and play games with a 7-day free trial to Luna+. After the trial is up, the subscription renews at $5.99/month during the early access period. Customers can also sign up for the $14.99/month Ubisoft+ channel to access both new and old Ubisoft titles on the platform. If you do not have a Fire TV, you can still sign up and request...

We would not have expected Amazon of all companies to take to crowdfunding, but here we are. The Seattle-based eCommerce, cloud, and internet of things company, among other divisions, has developed something called the “Build It” program. This program will let the customer weigh in on what products they want to see Amazon make by pre-ordering before production. It is an interesting concept, and the first products are out to vote on now through March 19th. First and foremost, the “Build It” program works by allowing customers to pre-order a product without having to pay. The pre-order is essentially just a spot reservation for a product. If enough people jump on board with... Read more...
Valentine's Day is upon us and if you're a procrastinator like some of us, then it's highly probable that you don't have a gift in hand for your significant other. If your “sweetie” is in to tech gadgets, and if they don't mind waiting until tomorrow or Tuesday to get their gift, Amazon has some deals that might be worth considering. Amazon Hardware Is Discounted By Up To $50 Right Now The fourth-generation Echo was launched in late 2020, and brought with it an all-new spherical shape, a built-in smart home hub, better sound, a digital microphone disconnect, and a low-power mode. The latest Echo is priced at $99, but Amazon is currently running a promotion where if you buy two, you... Read more...
In late 2020, we took a long, hard look at Dell's XPS 13 2-in-1 (9310) convertible. The XPS 13 family -- in both laptop and 2-in-1 configurations -- have long been well-respected in the ultraportable segment, and the latest XPS 13 2-in-1 is no exception. We came away impressed with the machine’s 13.4-inch InfinityEdge display, its aluminum and carbon fiber construction, and its fast and efficient Tiger Lake processor. Today, Amazon is running a pretty sweet deal on the convertible, which knocks off $360 the price of a near-flagship configuration.  The unit currently on sale comes with an 11th generation Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor, a generous 32GB of 4267MHz LPDDR4x...

On Monday, we brought you news of some very enticing deals on Samsung's new Galaxy S21 family. Amazon took $100 off the already attractively priced Galaxy S21, which brought its starting price to just $699. Likewise, both the Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra are available for $200 off, taking them to $799 and $999 respectively. However, Amazon is now extending its discount spree to the Galaxy Buds Pro wireless earbuds, which were announced alongside the Galaxy S21 family. The Galaxy Buds Pro typically retail for $199, but when purchased with the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ or Galaxy S21 Ultra, you'll get them for just $100. First, you'll want to add either of these three devices to your... Read more...
Late in January, Amazon updated Alexa to control your home more autonomously if so desired. Continuing in the trend of greater and and more powerful home control, Amazon may be developing a wall-mounted Alexa-based smart home command center to manage all the smart devices you may have. Amazon’s hardware division, called Lab126, is designing the new Alexa device to be a digital command center for the smart home, with features such as “showing users upcoming calendar events, controlling accessories like lights and locks, and playing music and video.” According to the unnamed source, it would also feature microphones and a camera for video conferencing or likely managing Ring doorbells...

The ink is barely dry on the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21 family of Snapdragon 888-powered smartphones, but as is often the case when new flagships launch, there are already some sweet discounts available for bargain shoppers. When the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra launched last month, they were priced from $799, $999, and $1,199 respectively. Today's deal, however, sees those prices fall by up to $200 if you opt for the pricier members of the Galaxy S21 family. Starting things off is the Galaxy S21, which is already a good bargain at $799. That price gets you a 6.2-inch FHD+ display (2400x1080), a Snapdragon 888 SoC, 12GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and a... Read more...
