Grab a 2-pack Aukey smart socket or a dual outlet smart plug for ~$20

Saturday, February 9th, 2019

Earlier this week we were telling you how you could save money on new smart plugs thanks to Amazon's markdown. Although this was an interesting deal, many Assistant users felt let down as they were only compatible with Alexa. Well, we've got some comforting news for you: With these promotional codes, you can grab a pair of Aukey WiFi Smart Plugs for just $20 or a dual outlet plug for $19, respectively $8 and $6 off their original prices.

Amazon’s deals for Valentine’s include the cheap $20 Echo Input, $70 2nd gen Echo, and $100 Spot

Friday, February 8th, 2019

Just a few days after Google's "Dump your valentine" discount, Amazon has come up with its own deals, in time for February 14. These offers are more relevant, though, and are worth considering if you're short of gift ideas. Most of the giant's connected home devices are on sale, including Echo speakers and smart displays, Fire TVs, cameras, and even Kindles.

Amazon's speakers have been marked down several times in the last few weeks, including deals on the Echo Plus and Echo Input, but the retailer is going stronger now to rival Google's bundles.

Choose Your Own Adventure books enter the world of voice AI with new Amazon Alexa skill

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Netflix's recent interactive film Bandersnatch received mostly mixed reviews, but was wholly successful in driving interest in Choose Your Own Adventure-style (CYOA) stories. That was both a boon and a frustration to Chooseco, the owner of the CYOA registered trademark and publisher of the famous book series of the same name. There was finally a resurgence of interest in CYOA stories, but the company didn't feel it was getting proper recognition.

Amazon’s compact and well-rated Smart Plug is 40% off, down to $14.99

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Connected devices have made my life a lot easier by automating tasks for me, such as turning on the heater when it's too cold or lighting up my living room before I get home. Smart plugs are one of the most convenient ways to achieve this, as they're easy to set up and work with virtually anything: I use them to control floor lamps, aroma diffusers, electric heaters, and even my Christmas lights.

It’s no Tide ad, but Amazon’s Alexa Super Bowl commercial is actually kind of funny

Friday, February 1st, 2019

For some, the Super Bowl is all about the event itself: watching two teams play the last football game of the season — or see who ends up playing the Patriots in their last game of the year, if you're a cynic. For many others, including myself, it's just an excuse to get together with your friends, eat a bunch of unhealthy foods, and watch some frequently amusing, high-budget ads. If you're in the latter camp, Amazon pushed out one of its Super Bowl commercials for you to check out early, and it's pretty funny.

Hot deal: Amazon’s Alexa microwave gets its first discount ever, just $42 (30% off)

Wednesday, January 30th, 2019

Given that Amazon now makes AmazonBasics-branded products for all sorts of things, including motor oil and dog beds, I guess we shouldn't be too surprised that there's an AmazonBasics microwave with Alexa built in. This microwave, regularly priced at $59.99, has dropped to $41.99.

As far as microwaves go, this one isn't especially powerful at 700W, and it's on the smaller end at 0.7 cubic feet. But for $41.99, you can't really complain.

Get the newest Amazon Echo Dot for $21 or a full-size Echo for $70 at Belk

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

A couple of weeks ago, shortly after we received news of the Chromecast Audio's untimely demise, Amazon put its most similar product, the Amazon Echo Input, on sale for an attention-grabbing 20 bucks. Now, Belk has a similarly sweet deal: the third-generation Echo Dot, which does everything the Input does and more, is just $20.99 at the retailer's online store. If you're looking for fuller sound, the regular Echo is on sale there, too.

Amazon Fire TV Stick now includes updated Alexa Voice Remote

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

Amazon's Fire TV Stick is already a good deal, but today it's getting even better. The retailer has decided to start bundling the improved Alexa Voice Remote with the HDMI streaming dongle, and the price remains at $39.99. If you want to purchase that remote for your existing Fire TB, it's 50% cheaper as a standalone purchase.

The new Alexa Voice Remote looks a lot like the old one, but it has power and volume buttons that can control your TV, soundbar, or AV receiver.
