No person who calls him/herself a tech enthusiast would ever dream of driving away from their house without a decent USB car charger in their vehicle. In my opinion, what makes a car charger great is the trifecta of good performance, decent looks, and a killer price. I just happen to have a deal on a charger that fits all three of those requirements to share with you all.

After a long period of fundraising and secretive planning, Jet.com has officially launched to the general public. Founded by Quidsi founders and former Amazon employees, the new retailer values one thing over everything else: have the lowest prices on the web and be the lowest by a noticeable margin.

Readers, we have a confession to make. This update to the Amazon shopping app actually came out on June 30th, over two weeks ago. Sorry about that. We spotted it, both on the Play Store and on APK Mirror, but didn't notice anything particularly new about it because Amazon neglected to upload a change log.
