Amazon wants you to buy pretty much everything on its site, from shoes to ships to ceiling wax. But especially the shoes, at least with the latest update to the Android shopping app. It brings support for a new Amazon Closet feature, which is kind of like a Pandora recommendation system for clothing.

Amazon Echo Frames review: About as useful as an Echo Dot taped to your forehead

Amazon Echo Frames review: About as useful as an Echo Dot taped to your forehead

Amazon's Alexa has been put into basically every product imaginable from smoke detectors to toilets. The goal, apparently, is to get Alexa into as many places as possible, so putting Alexa in glasses seemed like the next logical step. Amazon Echo Frames bring Alexa even closer and make it easier to access by putting it right on your face. While the Amazon Echo Frames are cool, they lack the audio quality I'd expect from $250 earbuds, and easy access to Alexa doesn't make up for that.

Amazon's new Fire Kids Pro tablets are designed to win over older kids

Amazon's Fire tablets are some of the best budget Android devices you can buy today. While they'll never truly compete head-to-head with Samsung's Galaxy Tabs or Apple's iPad on specs alone, once you get the Google Play Store sideloaded, they're great for browsing the web and streaming your favorite movies on the go. Amazon just refreshed its 10.1" Fire HD tablets today with improved specs and an all-new design, but it has also focused on expanding its Kids lineup of tablets for older children.

Amazon's latest Fire HD 10 tablets are now finally optimized for Zoom

Amazon's tablets aren't meant to set the world on Fire, but they're probably some of the most popular on the planet thanks to low price tags and integration with the company's retail empire. It's been about a year and a half since the 10-inch version got an upgrade, but today Amazon is taking pre-orders for the new Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 10 Plus.

Apple and Spotify could spell the end of everything we love about podcasts

Apple and Spotify could spell the end of everything we love about podcasts

During its first 2021 event yesterday, Apple announced "the next chapter of podcasting" with its Apple Podcasts Subscriptions. It's a new platform for podcasters that allows them to monetize their shows using subscription fees — conveniently only available to consumers through the Apple Podcasts app. Apple positions the new monetization method as separate premium products in addition to existing free or ad-supported podcasts, and there are already tons of studios and independent podcasters lining up to become part of the service.

The move is just part of a larger trend in the podcasting world, mostly kicked off by Spotify. The music streaming service is picking up more and more exclusives, holding some of our favorite content hostage with its terrible app in the process.

Grab a pair of wireless earbuds for less than the cost of Apple's new AirTags

I'm not here to kick dirt on the grave of old-school wired headphones. There was plenty to love about them, like affordability, solid sound quality, and a lack of charging. But wires have their own fair share of issues — just ask anyone who's had earbuds yanked out of their ears while passing by a door handle. Switching to Bluetooth headphones keeps things simple, and you don't have to spend a lot of money for a great experience. If you're ready to upgrade, Aukey has four excellent pairs of wireless earbuds on sale today to choose from at Amazon.
