Amazon is now letting anyone make Alexa Gadgets

Amazon has announced the availability of the Alexa Gadgets Toolkit, which will allow anyone to create accessories that pair and interact directly with Echo devices. Amazon first introduced the concept of Alexa Gadgets when they released their Echo Buttons about a year ago.

Amazon’s ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ wins 8 Emmy awards

Amazon’s original series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won big at the 70th PrimeTime Emmy Awards by taking home more major wins than any other show. The biggest award was the show’s win for Outstanding Comedy Series and Rachel Brosnahan won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her headline role. Show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino won the Emmys for both Directing and Writing for a Comedy Series for her contributions to the show. Those wins made history because it’s the first time a woman has ever won both awards in the same year. Alex Borstein won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Susie Myerson in the series. The final three Emmys were awarded during the creative arts ceremony for Casting, Music Supervision, and Single-Camera Picture Editing. The second season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel should debut in the coming months and Amazon has already greenlit the series for a third season.

Amazon Fire TV 3 (pendant) is on sale for $39.99 for Prime Members

Just as the sale for the Fire TV Cube and Fire TV Stick ended, Amazon has now put the Fire TV 3 (pendant) on sale for $39.99. This sale is for Prime members only, which is a bit strange because the Fire TV 3 was on sale for this exact price about a month ago for all customers. The Fire TV 3 abruptly went out of stock a few weeks ago which often suggests that it will be soon be discontinued, but it came back in stock at the start of the month and has remained in stock ever since, so perhaps it will still be around for a while afterall. This sale price is $5 more than the lowest price the Fire TV 3 has ever been, which was during Prime Day earlier this year.

Amazon partners with Getty Images to include relevant pictures with Alexa responses

Amazon and Getty Images have announced a partnership that will bring Getty’s vast library of over 200 million assets to Alexa devices. Amazon will be displaying relevant images alongside Alexa responses on devices with a screen. The Amazon Echo Show and Echo Spot are explicitly mentioned in the announcement, but we’ll likely see images appear on Fire TV devices and Show Mode on Fire Tablets as well. An example use case given is asking “Alexa, who won best Actress at tonight’s Academy Awards” and seeing a photo of the actress from the red carpet of that specific event along with the answer.

Sideclick Universal Remote for all Fire TV devices is on sale for $19.99 — Lightning Deal [Expired]

Amazon has the Sideclick Universal Remote on sale for $19.99. That’s $10 off its regular price of $29.99. This is a lightning deal that ends in just a few hours or when the allocated supply is sold out. The Sideclick attaches to the side of any Fire TV, Fire TV Cube, or Fire TV Stick remote to provide a column of 8 programmable IR buttons. I’m a big fan of this product and highly recommend it to anyone looking to reduce the number of remotes they use. Everything you need to use the Sideclick with any Fire TV, Fire TV Cube, or Fire TV Stick remote is included in the box, so you don’t need to worry about buying the correct attachment. The only remotes that it does not work with are the Fire TV Edition television remotes. This deal is expected to end tonight at midnight.
