[Deal Alert] Anker’s Mars portable projectors are 26-30% off ($280-$400) for today only on Amazon

Saturday, August 18th, 2018

Anker launched its first Android-powered portable projector about a year ago, the Nebula Mars. Since then, it also released the smaller Nebula Capsule, a sequel to the original Mars, and a Mars without Android. The two latter models, as well as the original, are heavily discounted for today only.

Firstly, Anker is selling the original Nebula Mars for $399.99, a $200 savings over the original price. This is still the brightest projector the company sells, with a rating of 500 ANSI Lumens (the Mars II is only 300 ANSI Lumens).

Friday, August 17th, 2018

With the ultra-affordable Google Home Mini and Echo Dot often on sale for as little as $30, it's no surprise that sales of smart speakers have gone through the roof over the past 12 months. The global market saw year-on-year growth of 187% in Q2, with total shipments increasing from 5.8 million in 2017 to a staggering 16.8 million for the same period in 2018. Google's lead from Q1 has been retained — it sold 5.4 million Home devices in the second quarter.

Amazon Fire TV gets new Alexa interface with latest update (v5.2.6.6)

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

With the release of the Fire TV Cube in June, Amazon also debuted a more minimalistic interface for Alexa. The new UI has been exclusive to the Cube up to now, but the version 5.2.6.6 update for Fire TV and Fire TV Stick devices brings them in line with their square-sided sibling.

Old vs New.

As reported by AFTVnews, Alexa actions that are compatible with visual accompaniments have been refreshed. For example, asking for a weather update (above) or requesting cinema listings near you (below) now come with a much cleaner on-screen interface.

Eufy Genie catches up to Amazon Echos with new calling and messaging abilities

Monday, August 6th, 2018

The Eufy Genie is a popular third-party Alexa-enabled smart speaker from Anker that can usually be picked up for as little as $30, making it a good alternative to the Echo Dot. It hasn't always been as capable as Amazon's own hardware, though, with the omission of calling and messaging being a prime example. The Genie is now finally getting those very features.

As previously reported by Tom's Guide, support for voice calls on third-party Alexa speakers has been planned for a few months.

Saturday, August 4th, 2018

When you leave your home for an extended time, you have a handful of ways to deter would-be burglars, including sticking signs with a security company's logo in your lawn or on your apartment door, scheduling lights to turn on at certain hours, or owning a dog with a vicious bark. But now a new Alexa skill called "Away Mode" lets you tap into the power of awkward conversations to make crooks think twice before barging into your abandoned abode.

Friday, August 3rd, 2018

Bluetooth speakers may not be as exciting as the futuristic, digital assistant-enabled hardware that's making the rounds these days, but they're still useful. When you're throwing a party on the deck or out at the beach, it isn't a Google Home that you reach for when packing. You need more volume, fewer wires, and battery-powered convenience, all of which the Beats Pill+ provides. And now you can pick one up for about half of MSRP ($114) at Best Buy and Amazon.
