Get this Kindle Paperwhite Deal
Amazon has put their all-new Kindle Paperwhite on sale for $99.99. This deal is $30 off the regular price and it’s the first time that this new model has ever been on sale. The new Kindle Paperwhite was released a month ago. It brings several of the features found on higher end Kindles, like the Kindle Oasis, down to a more affordable price point. Some of those features include being completely waterproof, supporting Audible audiobooks, and having a flush glass screen. It can also get 10% brighter and is both lighter and thinner than the old Paperwhite. Since the new Paperwhite didn’t go on sale during Black Friday, there is a good chance this will be the only discount it gets before the year ends, so get your order in soon. Amazon also has the new Kindle w/ Bluetooth headphones and 3-month Audible subscription for $139.00.
Get this Fire HD 10 Deal
Amazon has been trickling out repeats of their Black Friday deals all week and the latest item to go back on sale is the Fire HD 10 tablet for $99.99. This matches the lowest price that Amazon has ever sold their flagship tablet. The Fire HD 10 has the same internal CPU and GPU as the Fire TV 2 so it makes a great media consumption device. There’s 32 GB of internal storage that can be expanded through the microSD card. Either one can be loaded with downloaded Prime Videos or other content for offline viewing.
Get this Echo Dot Deal
Amazon has once again put the 2nd-Gen Echo Dot on sale for $19.99. This matches their price during Black Friday, so if you missed out on that sale or wished you ordered more units, here’s a second chance. I still think spending an extra $10 to get the 3rd-Gen Echo Dot for $29.99 is a better buy because it has a much better sounding speaker. That said, the older Echo Dot does have a few advantages, such as having a smaller footprint and being able to be powered via a USB port. The two models are functionally the same, so if you just want to extend access to Alexa for smart home control and basic tasks, the 2nd-Gen Echo Dot might be a better fit for you. Also, for an extra $10 you can get the Echo Dot + Smart Plug bundle for $29.99.

Some of these prices are lightning deals that end tonight at midnight. Here’s the list of all the best Fire TV Edition deals for each size and which store has the lower price. Read more ›
An issue has popped up that is causing the Alexa system app on rooted 2nd-gen Fire TVs that have the Xposed Framework installed to repeatedly crash and restart in a never-ending cycle. The issue seems to only affect devices running the 18.104.22.168 pre-rooted ROM that have also installed Xposed. The result is a loss of all Alexa voice remote functionality and a hit to performance.
