When the time comes to shop for ebooks, Amazon's Kindle Store is one of the first online destinations that comes to mind. Likewise, Audible, a company now owned by Amazon, is an easy recommendation for audiobooks. Thus far, people who own both the ebook and audiobook versions of a novel have had to hop back and forth between mobile apps to switch between the two.

Last month I took Amazon's Fire TV for a test drive and came away pretty damn impressed. It's a nice box with a lot to like – but there's also some pretty stiff competition in the streaming box arena. Companies like Google and Roku are both ready to take your money in exchange for enhancing an otherwise stale television experience.

Since there a variety of options on the market today, we decided to take four of the most popular and put them in a head-to-head deathmatch.

The Logitech Harmony Android app has received an update to version 3.3 that enables users to take control of their Sonos wireless HiFi sound systems from the comfort of their Android devices without having to switch back and forth between apps. The software should work from anywhere in the home and gives users control over volume, tracks, and playlists. It will also work with Amazon's spiffy Fire TV.

This provided screenshot comes from an iPhone, but the Android UI shouldn't look too different.

Might as well get your week started off right with some crazy good deals on storage for your devices. Today's Amazon Gold Box is full of SanDisk cards and drives for up to 79% off retail. Of primary interest to us are the microSD cards and microUSB OTG flash drives, but there's something for everyone.

When a catchy song pops up on the radio, during a television commercial, or over the speakers of a general department store, and you don't know who is singing, it's time to whip out Shazam. Now if you live in the US and take the time to Shazam a song - allow your phone to listen to and figure out what is playing - it will reward you with $1.29 in Amazon MP3 credit.

Admit it, you love to save a few bucks if the opportunity comes along, especially if it requires almost no effort. That should make Amazon's latest promotion pretty attractive to most of our readers. All you have to do is install the Amazon 1Button App for Chrome, and the next time you spend $25 or more, you will receive an automatic $5 discount on the purchase price. How can you pass this up?

Remember Flow, Amazon's augmented reality shopping aid that kinda sorta worked? Well now you don't have to, because the functionality has been rolled into the main Amazon shopping app. Now you can scan barcodes and even full products (at least some of the time) to compare their prices to everyone's favorite online megamart. And incidentally, you don't need a second app to do it.

The Flow features work best with a barcode, but the camera scanner will try to identify anything.

You've got a lot of options for high-end Android devices just at the moment, with the HTC One M8 out and the LG G3 coming soon. But if you want something for Verizon right now and your funds are limited, you could do a lot worse than the Samsung Galaxy S5. Amazon's wireless portal has the phone on Big Red for just fifty bones, assuming you're a new customer or you're adding a new phone line.

Update: This deal applies to select other PC digital downloads as well. Some are free, while others may set you back around a dollar.

Square Enix is currently offering a demo for Dungeon Siege III on Amazon that will reward you with $5 in free Amazon Appstore credit just for downloading it. This is virtual money that you can then turn around and spend on any Android apps or games you want (assuming Amazon offers them).

Regular Android Police readers know we're big fans of ZeroLemon's even bigger batteries for most flagship phones that can support them. If you've got an LG G Pro 2 (and preferably some oversized pockets as well), you can extend your untethered time by a considerable amount with the 9500mAh extended battery. The battery and its body-wrapping case are now on sale at Amazon for $49.99.

The G Pro 2's battery is already among the largest standard phone batteries available at 3200mAh, so the ZeroLemon package should give you roughly triple the battery life on one charge.
