Amazon fixes Echo Wall Clock connection issue and starts selling them again

Last month, Amazon stopped selling the Echo Wall Clock because it was having connection issues that caused it to randomly disconnect from the Echo device that it was paired to. The Echo Wall Clock is now once again available to purchase. Amazon has pushed out an update to existing clocks that should fix the connection issues, according to The Verge. The software update should be pushed automatically to the clock through the paired Echo device. My Echo Wall Clock, which did have the connection issue, hasn’t disconnected in weeks, so it does seem like the problem has been fixed.

Amazon Ethernet Adapter for Fire TV Sticks and Fire TVs is on sale for $10.99 — First Sale Ever

Get this Ethernet Adapter Deal

Amazon has just put the official Ethernet Adapter for Fire TVs on sale for $10.99. If my memory is correct, this is the first time that it has ever been on sale. Amazon has offered it at a discount in the past when buying it along with a Fire TV device, but I don’t believe it has ever been on sale on its own. The Amazon Ethernet Adapter is compatible with the current 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick, the Fire TV Stick 4K, the 3rd-gen Fire TV (Pendant), and the Fire TV Cube. It plugs into the micro USB port on those devices to provide a wired internet connection so that you don’t have to rely on WiFi. Read more ›

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K is on sale for $39.99

Get this Fire TV Stick 4K Deal

The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K is sale for $39.99. This price is only $5 more than the lowest price that Amazon has ever sold it. The Fire Tv Stick 4K is the most powerful streaming device Amazon currently sells. Even if you don’t have a 4K TV, it is highly recommended to pay the extra $10 to get this model instead of the regular Fire TV Stick, which is currently on sale for $29.99. That’s because the extra power will keep the device running smoother for the long haul and it has better WiFi connectivity, among many other improvements. It comes with the new Alexa voice remote with power and volume buttons built-in, as do all current Fire TV models. Also on sale is the Fire TV Cube for $79.99 and the Fire TV Recast for $189.99.

Amazon Fire TV Stick is on sale for $29.99 — First Sale Ever w/ New Alexa Voice Remote

Get this Fire TV Stick Deal

The Amazon Fire TV Stick is on sale for $29.99. This is the older 1080p Fire TV Stick, but it now includes the new Alexa Voice Remote, which includes power and volume buttons on the remote. This is the first time that the new bundle has ever been on sale. Considering the new remote itself costs $29.99 on its own, this is a great price. I think it’s worth paying an extra $10 to get the Fire Tv Stick 4K instead, which is currently on sale for $39.99, because of the extra CPU power and improved WiFi. However, if you’re on a budget and/or don’t have a 4K TV, then the regular Fire TV Stick is still a very capable device. Also on sale is the Fire TV Cube for $79.99 and the Fire TV Recast for $189.99, which are both $40 off their regular prices.
