Sling TV launched recently with an interesting proposition. Pay $20 per month and get a handful of TV channels streaming to all your devices without a regular cable subscription. To sweeten the deal, Sling is teaming up with Amazon to offer a discount on FireTV devices, which can be used to watch Sling TV.
This deal isn't for everyone, but if it is for you, it's a really good one. The device in question is a carrier locked AT&T LG G3 in either of its color schemes and 32 GB of storage. No matter how you choose to buy it - without a contract, on-contract, or via the Next program - you'll get a $100 Amazon gift card after your purchase.
What's the catch? Well, there aren't too many, beyond the fact you basically need to use AT&T. Read More
So, you've got a lot of stuff that doesn't fit on your phone? If you're lucky enough to have a microSD card slot, that's easy to fix. Amazon's Gold Box deal today features Sony flash storage, but not just microSD cards.
Update: Google says that the Nexus Player is also available from TigerDirect. The official Nexus Twitter account also mentions Wal-Mart and Fry's Electronics, though it isn't available from their online sites, so it may only be on sale in brick-and-mortar stores. Staples' online store is also mentioned, but as of noon Monday, the Nexus Player isn't listed. Amazon now has an official listing from Asus available at the standard $99 price with free Prime shipping. Read More
Those of you with an Amazon Prime account also have a stockpile of music open to you through the company's half-a-year-old streaming service, and with version 4.3 of the Android app, the retailer is making those tracks easier to access.
Instead of browsing through the company's virtual store shelves and adding albums to your library as though you were buying them, you can just browse through a separate Prime Music section. When you click on a song there, it simply starts playing. Read More
Amazon's foray into the world of digital wallets started in July of last year. The company released the Amazon Wallet app on the Play Store and its own Appstore. If you go looking for it today, you'll come up empty handed. Amazon has pulled the apps and ended support for Amazon Wallet.
You may have a few wall chargers with multiple USB ports lying around your house and office, but what about the distance in between? And that bizarre thing that people do on weekends where they get out of the house and go places?

Amazon Studios has already produced a number of television series such as Mozart in the Jungle and Transparent. Read More
About a year and a half ago when David Ruddock reviewed JBL's Charge portable speaker, he came away with an excellent impression, with the only caveat being that it might be a little too pricey. That problem has been alleviated by Amazon, at least for today: the online retailer has given the Charge a $60 price drop on the Gold Box deal portal. That's a great price, but it also means that the discount is available for one day only. Read More
I don't need to ramble on for long to explain how having a wall charger with four USB ports is better than an alternative with only one. It's simple math, really. If you have multiple devices on your desk that all plug into a USB port (phones and tablets, generally), or you and co-workers find yourselves scavenging for free power outlets while traveling, a 4-port USB wall charger can ease your struggle.
