Just a few days after Google's "Dump your valentine" discount, Amazon has come up with its own deals, in time for February 14. These offers are more relevant, though, and are worth considering if you're short of gift ideas. Most of the giant's connected home devices are on sale, including Echo speakers and smart displays, Fire TVs, cameras, and even Kindles. Read More
However good smartphone displays may get, when it comes to long-form text, e-readers offer a noticeably superior experience. Reading for long periods of time on an e-ink display results in less fatigue to the eyes, battery life is measured in weeks instead of hours, and you get a break from the barrage of notifications that distract you while reading on a phone. Amazon has virtually no competition in this market, but it still keeps making better Kindles every few years. The latest generation Kindle Paperwhite is currently on sale at an all-time low price of $90 across various retailers. This is $10 lower than the $100 sale price from last month. Read More

Historically, Black Friday might have been the best time of year to pick up that new TV or laptop, but Amazon's been pushing it's self-constructed Prime Day retail discount holiday since 2015 as a way to get your deal on a few months early.

Amazon is discounting two of its Kindle ebook readers by $30: the regular Kindle and the Kindle Paperwhite. With the price drop, these now start at $49.99 and $89.99, respectively, an all-time low that we've seen on very rare occasions before. Read More
The Kindle app has been on Android since the early days, and it's been some time since Amazon gave it a fresh coat of paint. The busted old interface is on the way out today. A new Kindle app is rolling out with an updated look and some new features. Although, not everyone is happy with the new app. Read More
The holidays are fast approaching and Amazon seems to be announcing one new product or service every day, so it's hard to keep up. The latest, however, is a waterproof Kindle with a larger 7" display that has us really jealous and itching for something like it but also compatible with Play Books.
Unlike its predecessors, the Oasis doesn't sport a 6" display, but takes it up a notch to 7". And it does that while reducing most bezels and thus still being roughly the same height and weight as the Paperwhite or Voyage.
