Given that Amazon now makes AmazonBasics-branded products for all sorts of things, including motor oil and dog beds, I guess we shouldn't be too surprised that there's an AmazonBasics microwave with Alexa built in. This microwave, regularly priced at $59.99, has dropped to $41.99. Read More
Amazon is recalling six models of power banks in its AmazonBasics line, totaling about 260,000 units, due to 53 reports of overheating in the US. One of these reports caused chemical burns, and four caused property damage. Read More

Well, it's high time you filled up those silent speakerless spaces with music and podcasts and all the noise and sound that your phone can stream. Best of all? It won't cost you a lot.
