Killer deal: Amazon will pay you $10 to buy a $30 Google Chromecast

Google’s little Chromecast dongle is pretty awesome. The device plugs into the HDMI port on any HDTV or monitor and instantly gives users access to movies, TV shows, videos, music, photos and more that can be streamed from any Android device. Best of all, perhaps, the Chromecast is wonderfully inexpensive at just $29.99.

For a limited time, however, Amazon is making Google’s Chromecast an even better value by offering a deal that really may be too good to pass up. More →

These 3 Amazon deals offer killer prices on gadgets every smartphone user needs

Yes, Amazon’s massive Prime Day sale ended up being a bust for the most part. The site is still home to some of the best deals you’ll find on the web, of course, and we’ve got three solid ones to share with you today. All three of them are limited-time sales on great gadgets that bring cheap prices to accessories every smartphone user should have.

How good are these prices? One deal drops the price of a very handy accessory to just $4.99 with free shipping — there are some cups of coffee at Starbucks that aren’t even that cheap! More →

This newscaster was completely serious with his insane explanation of why Amazon stock skyrocketed

This newscaster was completely serious with his insane explanation of why Amazon stock skyrocketed

Last week, shares of Amazon shot up 100 points following news that the online retailer had actually (gasp!) generated a profit during its second fiscal quarter. As a result, Amazon’s market cap, for the first time in history, surpassed that of Walmart’s.

While it remains to be seen how long Amazon’s shares remain at all-time high levels, one newscaster from KTVN Channel 2 in Las Vegas presented a wild theory, on-air no less, attempting to explain how Amazon managed to leapfrog Walmart in terms of overall value. More →

Amazon Spying Social Media Profiles

Writer claims Amazon spied on her social media profiles to invalidate her reviews

Writer claims Amazon spied on her social media profiles to invalidate her reviews

We all depend on Amazon reviews to an extent, ensuring that whatever product we’re about to buy is worth our hard-earned cash. We also naturally assume that the reviews we’re reading are legitimate, which means Amazon needs to have some process to vet reviewers. Unfortunately, that process appears to have backfired in the case of indie writer Imy Santiago. More →

4 killer Amazon deals every iPhone and Android phone user needs to check out

4 killer Amazon deals every iPhone and Android phone user needs to check out

Call it part of the burden of smartphone ownership: you simply can’t do without certain accessories. Paying $400, $500 or even $600+ for a smartphone is only the beginning — if you want to get the most out of your iPhone or Android phone purchase and make life as easy as possible, you’ll also need to buy several accessories.

Additional chargers are a must, of course, but buying OEM isn’t always the best way to go. And of course, there aren’t always any OEM options when it comes to portable power packs, so you’ll need to look elsewhere.

Today, we’ve got four limited-time Amazon deals to tell you about, and you won’t want to miss them. More →

One week later, people are still ragging on Amazon for lame Prime Day deals

As we’ve said in the past, the plethora of lame Amazon Prime Day deals was the worst First World Crisis to hit North America since Apple gave everyone a free U2 album. This traumatic experience was so disappointing that people are still ragging on Amazon for letting them down nearly a full week later. More →

Amazon competitor Jet.com launches with better prices

After the farce that was Prime Day, plenty of disgruntled customers would love to find another online store to patronize rather than reward Amazon for its bait-and-switch tactics.

Of course, alternatives to a storefront as enormous as Amazon are hard to come by, but on Tuesday, CEO Marc Lore launched Jet.com, a new site that combines the shopping experience of Amazon with the pricing and membership model of a wholesale store like Sam’s Club or Costco. More →

Sony Sound Bar Deal Amazon

Better than most Prime Day deals: One of Sony’s best sound bars is on sale for $170 on Amazon

Better than most Prime Day deals: One of Sony’s best sound bars is on sale for $170 on Amazon

When Prime Day kicked off last week, I think it took a few hours for the harsh reality of the situation to sink in. Amazon hyped up a sale that would eclipse Black Friday, and instead what we got was a clearance sale of junk that must have been sitting in the back of a warehouse somewhere. It really stunk, but thankfully, now that Prime Day is over, the worthwhile deals have returned. More →

Windows 10: You can preorder USB install kits on Amazon right now

Many Windows users will have their Windows 7 and Windows 8 PC updated for free to Windows 10 come July 29th, but that doesn’t mean other Windows fans won’t have to pay for it. In fact, several leaks so far suggested this might be the first time Windows will be available in packages containing USB install sticks rather than disks, and that, in the future, Windows updates will be done strictly over an Internet connection.

However, those of you looking to buy Windows 10 can already preorder it from Amazon, but be ready for a wait. More →

Amazon: Prime Day broke sales records, exceeded Black Friday 2014

You may have hated all the junk Amazon tried pawning off on you this week as part of Prime Day… but you bought it all up anyway. Amazon has just announced that its first-ever Prime Day smashed its previous records for the most items sold in a day, including last year’s Black Friday sale. In total, customers ordered an estimated 34.4 million items on the day, which is a truly remarkable number given how much people complained about the quality of the items on sale. More →

The ultimate Prime Day humiliation

The ultimate Prime Day humiliation

Amazon’s Prime Day seemed to make the Internet go insane this week, as people both raged against Amazon trying to unload piles of useless junk while at the same time scooping up those 100-packs of old CD-Rs. This seeming contradiction was best captured by Thomas Nguyen on Twitter, who observed that before Prime Day, “I didn’t realize that there are so many things I don’t need but I want.” More →
