The best-selling Complete Adventures of Curious George Kindle eBook now $4

Amazon offers The Complete Adventures of Curious George as a Kindle eBook for $3.99. Regularly $25 as a hardcover book, this is the second best price that we’ve tracked all-time. Note: this title is free if you have a FreeTime Unlimited membership at Amazon. Rated 4.5/5 stars.

At the beginning of the month, Amazon announced the new $119 Fire TV Cube, a hybrid Echo device and streaming media player that promises a glimpse into the future of content consumption. As set-top boxes from Apple, Roku and now Amazon have grown in popularity over the last few years, two key issues have repeatedly popped up for viewers. How to best manage an overflowing chest of content and the headache that comes with multiple remotes.

Fire TV Cube looks to cure that with an all-in-one solution centered around its Alexa voice platform. In our hands-on testing, it delivered as a means for sorting through content but fell short as an intuitive hub for home theaters. The potential is there, but don’t count on it changing the game just yet.
