Amazon EchoI’ve had my Amazon Echo smart speaker since they were available to the general public and can honestly say it has changed the way our family lives. We put it in our open floor plan kitchen/family room where the far-field mic can hear our voices up to 20 feet away and has pretty incredible speech recognition accuracy. We were a little weirded out calling it “Alexa” so we changed the default name to “Amazon” – the only other current choice.

My wife used to ask me what the weather was going to be like in the morning which would annoyingly (jk love of my life) require me to go to a computer or smartphone and ask the…same…question. The Amazon Echo allows me to strut my passive aggressive side so when she asked what the weather was going to be like, I would just repeat “Amazon, what’s the weather going to be like today”. My wife, who hates using Siri because she feels like it makes her look weird/uncomfortable talking to her iPhone, stopped asking me what the weather was going to be like. She started asking Echo.

Bam! Worth the money right there. But there’s so much more… expand full story

Sprint Subsidy Boost Mobile is offering the Netgear Fuse Wifi Hotspot which supports up to 10 devices for $49.99. Coupon code CLEAR40 cuts it to $9.99 with free shipping. That’s the lowest price for any mifi hotspot we’ve seen.

The hotspot is worthless without a Boost Mobile Data Plan and luckily Boost have some of the best options in the business. Some of the prices are listed below but start out at $25/ month for 1.5GB and grows… $60/month gets you unlimited (dump your broadband provider?!)

Update: now $6.25 which is still a great deal

Amazon via Pangea sells Apple Certified 5-foot Lightning cables for just $6.25 shipped. That’s a great price on colorful Lightning cables 2 feet longer than Apple’s,  produced with Apple’s Lightning chips.

Pangea Lightning cables are an extra-long 5-feet in length—42% longer than Apple’s standard Lightning cable—and feature superior shielding, robust 27-gauge signal conductors, heavy-duty 21-gauge power conductors and Apple’s newest, thinnest C48 Lightning connector on one end, with a USB ‘A’ connector on the other end. Pangea has utilized high-grade copper, with wire gauges that are significantly thicker than a typical Apple-type cable in order to deliver accurate signal and steady power despite the longer cable length. Five available colors (Black, Blue, Green, Pink, or White) are designed to match your iPhone, iPad Mini or other Apple device.

“Pangea’s Lightning cables offer a no-compromise design and the convenience of a longer cable length all at a very affordable price,” explained Pangea cable designer Jay Victor. “The easy-grip molded connectors and durable cable cover make our solution ideal for everyday use, and we have added a touch of elegance to these Lightning cables by carefully matching Apple’s 5-shade color palette,” concluded Victor. MSRP for the Pangea Lightning cables is $29.95 however they are available now from AudioAdvisor.com and Amazon at the low introductory price of $19.95.

These get very high 4.6/5 reviews from 50 Amazon reviewersexpand full story

MacUpdate has an extremely solid bundle on offer for the next 2 weeks featuring the normally $100 Toast Titanium for $50 – for all 10 Mac Apps.  Toast used to be the standard for ripping optical media but over the past few years it has morphed into a video transcoding and editing tool. For Toast alone, you’d save $50 on this bundle but MacUpdate also offers an additional 9 apps, most of which are primetime players. Boom boosts your Mac volume systemwide, Expandrive allows you to access cloud services just like a local drive. DevonThink is a great information manager. Paragon allows you to use NTFS drives/partitions on a Mac, Netspot is a great wireless survey tool. Sparkle is a very good HTML Editor. There’s also iMazing for accessing files on an OS Drive and MacOptimizer which helps speed up your Mac. Seasonality Core is a in-depth weather stats app which is available for the first 5000 downloads so hurry up! expand full story
