[Deal Alert] Get a Triby portable speaker with Amazon Alexa for $69.99 on Woot! (65% off)

There are more and more Alexa-powered speakers available but affordable ones are still a little difficult to find. The Echo Dot remains one of the best options at $49.99, but it constantly requires a power source. You could grab a portable charger for it, but if you don't want to spend money on a make-do solution, today's deal on the Triby might seem much more interesting.

Triby is a portable speaker with voice-activated Amazon Alexa integration. It is charged via MicroUSB and lasts up to 2 days, so you can move it along with you from the kitchen to the bedroom to the balcony and not worry about power cords.

You may recall us covering ML Manager, an incredibly easy to use APK extractor tool, earlier this month. APK extractor tools can be incredibly useful, from simply backing up applications (perhaps ones removed from the Play Store) to uploading them to APKMirror.
