On July 15th, Amazon is holding a big Prime Day sale that it says will offer more deals than Black Friday. You will also get to do without the lines, risk of being trampled, and having to get up from the Thanksgiving dinner table a mere five minutes after sitting down.
The only catch is that you have to be an Amazon Prime member. That luxury costs a recurring $100 fee. Read More
The 2nd Moto E is Motorola's cheap phone, but it's really not that bad for less demanding use. Normally it goes for $120 - $150 depending on whether you want LTE. Today Amazon is apparently selling them for significantly less. Global and US GSM models are going for just $90. LTE models are selling for only $10 more.
You get a 4.5-inch qHD display, a 5MP camera, and a 2390mAh battery. Read More
Android M is going to have some interesting new tools for fans of MicroSD cards and expandable storage in general. If you're looking for some cheap SD cards, Amazon is selling official Samsung-branded storage today... an unfortunate and cruel circumstance for owners of the Galaxy S6. Anyway, Amazon's selection of EVO cards has a few very good deals at the moment, particularly this 64GB Class 10 MicroSD card for just $19.57. Read More
It's honestly kind of surprising that a company as huge and far-reaching as Amazon hasn't made a more serious effort to sell things in Mexico yet. After all, there are over a hundred million people in the country - surely a few of them want to buy some books and phones and such, and Amazon already sells to much smaller markets in Europe. The company announced today that it's expanding its online retail services to Mexico, including both conventional sales and its Marketplace program. Read More
Are you going on a trip soon and need some extra power to both your phone and your tunes? Then make a pit stop at Amazon first. Today the ubiquitous retailer is offering a discounted combo to US customers: a "ruggedized" and semi-waterproof Omaker M4 Bluetooth speaker plus a 5200mAh Omaker external battery for $31.98. That's $20 off of the retail price for both of them combined - you're basically getting the charger for free, and the speaker at a tiny discount. Read More
Amazon probably isn't the first company that comes to mind when you think of innovative gadgets. Not anymore, anyway. Hearing a company is producing a ho-hum smartphone based on Android isn't nearly as exciting as hearing about the Kindle for the first time. But with the Echo, the online retailer does have a cool piece of tech on its hands.
The Echo, which recently became available for general purchase in the US, is essentially what you get when you stick Google Now or Siri into a plastic tube. Read More
Monument Valley remains one of the finest puzzle experiences on a mobile device, but it's unfortunately somewhat short. There's a little more to love today with the release of Ida's Dream, a chapter that was originally created for a charity promotion on iOS. You can get it for free if you've already purchased Monument Valley—no extra IAP required.
Amazon's latest app giveaway is worth more than $50 and will remain available for the next week. As you can see in the hero image, some of the headliners include The Bard's Tale and Weather Live, though there are several more that may interest you. And while the super-popular Monument Valley has disappeared from the promotional page, it's free too. This is bigger and better (and longer-lasting) than its typical free daily deal, though it isn't their best ever. Beyond those already mentioned, you might want to pay special attention to Quell Memento and Alarm Clock Pro.
Here is the full list of what's on offer, all of them free for now:

Cheap USB car chargers are a dime a dozen, even ones with enough ports to charge two devices at once. But this dual-USB (2.1A + 1A) charger from Elivebuy stands out, and it's not because this is the fastest charger of the bunch. It caught our attention because it just might save your life, and it will do it for six bucks if you go to Amazon and enter the coupon code Q626JPAD at checkout.
The charger in question comes with a glass hammer that can be used to shatter windows during an emergency. It also comes with LED lights that can provide illumination in the darkness or serve as hazard warnings. Read More
