Get more for your money and never lose your game progress with Amazon Coins and the Amazon Appstore [Sponsored Post]

Why pay more than you have to for the games you love? When you use the Amazon Appstore, you can enjoy big savings with Amazon Coins. And for a limited time, you can get up to 30% refunded back to you when you make purchases in some of the most popular games around.

Amazon Coins are used to make in-app purchases just like cash in games downloaded via the Amazon Appstore, but at a discount to you. Each Coin has an equivalent value to one penny, so 100 Coins = $1.00. However, you don’t pay $1.00 for every 100 Coins. For instance, if you buy $100 worth of Amazon Coins, you will only pay $87 of your own money.

Rumor: Amazon Realizes All The Cool Kids Have Subscription Music Services, Now Building Its Own

Amazon is apparently hoping the third time's a charm when it comes to music services, at least if a new rumor from Reuters is to be believed (which, yeah, it probably should be). According to Reuters, Amazon will launch a $9.99 per month music subscription service to compete with the likes of Spotify, Apple Music, Play Music, and others.

If you remember, Amazon MP3 was actually Android's stock internet music player back in the day, until Amazon and Google had a falling out over Fire OS that to this day has lingered with consequences for consumers, like Android TV not having Amazon Instant Video.

[Deal Alert] Moto 360 Sport On Sale For $161.32 Via Amazon

Let's get real—the Moto 360 Sport has not been a successful device for Motorola. It took too long to launch, was too expensive, and didn't look or feel very nice. The original $300 price is in the rear view mirror, and now it's reached an all-time low of $161.32 on Amazon. At that price, I think it's a reasonable purchase.

Amazon's Alexa Has Over 1,000 Skills, But Discoverability And Quality Remain Issues

Amazon's Echo has become the de-facto standard of home voice control, at least until Google Home is released and we find out whatever Apple is planning. To emphasise Amazon's market-leading position, the company has published a press release saying Alexa has over 1,000 skills and integrations - we counted roughly 1,150 (115 pages with 10 items on each page). For such a young platform, this is mightily good news, and says wonders about the battleground that the home will be for technology companies in the future.

Amazon Releases A 64GB Version Of The Fire 10 HD Tablet With A New Aluminum Body For $290

Depending on who you ask, Amazon's Fire series might just be the most popular Android tablets on the planet. They're certainly up there, thanks to an extremely low entry price and some pretty decent media tie-ins with Amazon's various platforms, the lack of Google Play access notwithstanding. The value at the high end of the range isn't bad either, and Amazon just made it a little better: the big daddy Fire 10 HD now has a 64GB option, and it's available for under $300.

Amazon's Echosim Simulates Echo Devices In The Browser, Allows Everyone To Put Alexa To The Test

Community projects are fantastic - just look at how strong Android's aftermarket community is, creating custom ROMs and launching entire operating systems and companies in the process. Now Amazon's getting in on the action, rebranding developer Sam Machin's Alexa in the Browser project as Echosim and bringing Alexa to everyone in the process.

Echosim is a way to use an Amazon Echo directly in your browser. Built with JavaScript, it gives anyone the chance to question Alexa and experience the Echo platform without actually owning a device. This is all the more important in countries where the voice-enabled cylinders are not available, such as the UK, where I live.
