Amazon Launches Stylish Product (RED) Echo Which Supports The Fight Against AIDS

If you’re in the market for an Amazon Echo this holiday season, why not get one that helps fight AIDS (and is without a doubt the best looking option).

Amazon has partnered with Product (RED) to introduce a special edition of their new Echo in the awesome looking red color that the charity is known for. The red really makes it stand out and not look as drab as the standard neutral colors of black (yawn), grey (snooze), other grey (double snooze) or silver (ZZZ).

Every Product (RED) Echo that is sold has Amazon contribute $10 to the organization’s worldwide fight against AIDS. This isn’t the first time Product (RED) has partnered with a tech company to introduce the stylish color into the lineup and contribute to the cause, but it is the first time for Amazon.

Available for $99 now.

Amazon Key Lets Couriers Open You Front Door To Leave A Package

Amazon has gotten really good at this whole delivery thing. With their Prime 2-day shipping, same day shipping in some cities, and their famous $25 order gets free shipping deal, but now they’re trying to make it safer for that new iPad you ordered.

Their new service, Amazon Key, allows users who have both Amazon Cloud Cam and a Smart Lock to opt-in to a program which allows couriers to scan your package and sent the data to Amazon’s servers. If everything checks out, Amazon will unlock the door, allowing them to open it and leave you package inside your house.

I don’t know if I want a stranger to have access to my house. He might start cruising around and scope out all my valuables, if I had any, or gawking at pictures of my loved ones, again, if I had any.

If you have a lot of trust in Amazon, and want to keep your packages safe, maybe you’re into it. But, next thing you know, the UPS guy is taking longer to finish his routes and comes back rocking a pair of  Yeezy’s, a new iPad and a Labrador-Schnauzer named Han Solo.

The following article is brought to you by The Tech Info Group. -Ed

Amazon’s Dash Button Lets You Re-order Everyday Stuff At The Press Of A Button

tide-dash-630

Amazon is all about eliminating as much friction between top Amazon products, and them delivering it to your doorstep; the more seamless and unintrusive the process is, the more likely you are to make the company money. Their latest effort in that field is the Dash Button, which lets you re-order everyday household items by simply pressing the button on a little dongle. Offered by invitation only to Amazon Prime members, the button is setup through the Amazon app, and connects to your WiFi router. If you’re doing the laundry and you see you’re running low on detergent for example, simply press it; you’ll then be get a notification on your phone allowing you to either cancel, or continue your order. It’s a smart idea, and comes on the heels of a previous gadget, the Dash, which was a Wifi enabled barcode scanner. We’re not sure how popular that device became, but there’s a feeling Amazon is testing the waters with a lot of these things, and we wouldn’t be surprised if at least some of it eventually stuck as a normal, ubiquitous ordering mechanism amongst shoppers.

Fan Of Reading? Amazon Launches Kindle Unlimited

KU_featureDoc_top_header._V347166684_

If you’re on this website reading the words rather than just looking at the pretty pictures, there’s a chance you’re also into reading other stuff. Like, you know, books. Amazon has recently announced the launch of Kindle Unlimited. For $9.99 a month, you’ll have unlimited access to their entire library of digital books, more than 600,000 strong. Additionally, you’ll receive a 3-month membership to Audible, where you have access to yet another library of professionally narrated audiobooks. This works across devices, and not just on the Kindle family of products. That means tablets, cellphones, and even computers.

The kick in the nuts, however, is that if you’re not living in the states, you’re out of luck for the moment. Still, the company claims to have plans to expand the service, so stay tuned.

The Booty Wrap is the World’s Most Useless Article of Clothing

Booty Wrap

I love clothes and accessories just like every other girl, but I think the Booty Wrap is just plain frivolous and unnecessary. The people behind it probably thought they could make a few quick bucks over an article of clothing that has the sole purpose of covering your booty.

Many women tend to tie their jackets or sweatshirts around their waist when they’re wearing a short top or low-rise waist jeans. Or they could just be tired from carrying it around all day. This is where the concept of the Booty Wrap came from: it looks just like a sweatshirt tied around your waist, when in fact it’s just a flat garment with sleeves and pockets.

And while I did say it was unnecessary, it could come in useful sometimes. Like, say, when it’s hot outside and carrying around a sweatshirt becomes too much of a pain. In case you want it, the Booty Wrap is available online from Amazon for $39.99.
