Today is the 46th Earth Day. Though from the perspective of the earth, it’s probably closer to its 1.6 trillionth day. Nonetheless, Earth Day is supposed to be an occasion to demonstrate your support for environmental protection.

You can show your support in very simple ways like using less energy or finally recycling those dead batteries that have been piling up in your junk drawer, or you can try to pick up some new habits and initiate yourself to new and greener technologies. expand full story

These binoculars have a large aperture that’s good for “low light conditions and stargazing”, a tripod adapter and 13mm long eye relief that’s “ideal for eyeglass wearers.” Rated 4.2/5 stars from over 1,800 Amazon reviewers and they’re also the best selling binoculars at Amazon.  

It feels like the Bluetooth speaker market has bottomed out. We’re missing new and exciting designs, as each release feels like a knockoff of the one before it. Finding a way to reinvent this wheel is proving to be difficult for audio manufacturers. Simply put, Bluetooth is everywhere we look.

Today, Bang & Olufsen released its smallest speaker yet in an effort to shake up the competition. The BeoPlay A1 has the familiar styling of its larger siblings but comes in at a smaller size that is comparable to the popular UE ROLL. However, it sets itself apart in one key area: 24-hour battery life. More below.

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
