There is no better tablet deal out there than the Kindle Fire 7-inch IPS display tablet for $49.99 shipped. Sure it is all baseline specs, the front and back cameras aren’t amazing and it only has 8GB of storage. It runs FireOS instead of Google’s full Android which isn’t a bad thing if you don’t need Google’s apps.

But that doesn’t mean it still isn’t a great consumption machine for $50 (or 6 pack for $250!). You get Netflix/Hulu/Amazon Prime videos and music. Tons of Appstore apps and Amazon’s best selection of eBooks on the planet.  Amazon also offers a free paid app every day.

Today Amazon gives more options to those in the $50 tablet market. Besides black, you can grab the playful magenta, blue, and tangerine colors and for $20 more you can get a 16GB option (also available on the ruggedized kids version w/2 year garantee)

Customers can now choose between three new colors: magenta, blue, and tangerine, as well as black—and still for only $49.99. Fire is also available with 16 GB of internal storage for only $69.99.

Also starting today, Fire Kids Edition, the tablet built from the ground up for kids (and their parents), is available with a new green kid-proof case (already available in pink or blue) and with 16 GB of internal storage for $119.99. Fire Kids Edition with 8 GB of internal storage will continue to be available for only $99.99.

I’ll be honest, I like the colors but I’m not sure I’m in on a 40% increase in price for 8GB of storage. The Kindle Fire also has MicroSD storage which means you can certainly store your media more cheaply with a MicroSD card.  That same $20 buys you a 64GB MicroSD card that you can also throw into a GoPro, Raspberry Pi or Android phone. expand full story

Pssst!

If you are an Apple Watch/Sport owner, you probably already know the value in having a few different easy-to-switch watch bands around. Sport bands are great for outdoor fun but a nice Leather band cleans up your Sport and turns it into a night on the town or formal event type of timepiece.

But Apple charges $149 for Leather magnetic clasp bands which is more than half the price of an Apple Watch Sport on sale these days. What if I told you you could get a great knockoff of the Apple Watch Leather Band at a tenth of the price for just $14.49 Prime Shipped after $14.99 coupon code 9JGNFFVF. You can also pick up a well-rated Milanese Loop knockoff for $12.99 Prime shipped. These certainly won’t be as good as Apple’s but at a tenth of the $149 retail price of Apple’s you can afford to take a little bit of a risk. 

These come with 18 month warranty and are fulfilled by Amazon. Comes in Apple’s 5 colors and in both 38mm and 42mm sizes.

ICYMI: You can grab a Milanese Loop Band + an Aluminum Dock for $27 Prime shipped.

As for the quality, it certainly won’t be as nice as Apple’s offering but it gets great reviews on Amazon and other folks seem to love it. Available in Gold/Black/Silver in both 38 and 42mm sizes. These usually go quick so get in while you can.

Amazon is knocking a significant $125 off the price of the Moto X Pure White Bamboo smartphone in 16GB size to $299.99 shipped. That’s by far the lowest price we’ve seen for this very stylish and well rated smartphone with 5.7-inch display, *almost* pure Android, 21MP Sony camera sensor, 5.7″ Quad HD display, stereo sound, TurboPower charging and splash-proofing. Cam at 9to5Google reviewed it very favorably and I can’t recommend this phone enough personally. This was my favorite Android phone until the Nexus 6P was released and the only possible downsides I can think of is the large size and lack of fingerprint sensor.  The Black version with plastic back is also $299.99 shipped which is $100 off.

It is expandable via SD card all the way up to over 200GB ($80) but you are probably going to be fine with a 64-128GB Micro SD Card for $22-$50

The Prius powering our home during Hurricane Sandy
Comments (7)

Our town got hit hard during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Our home lost power for almost 2 weeks and I hadn’t purchased a generator for our house. Time to move into a hotel, right?

Nope.

I had a couple of small inverters and a Toyota Prius with a full 10 gallon tank of gas that kept our house lit and computers/phones/internet on for the better part of 2 weeks. I even had enough power for some Halloween lights… expand full story
