Happy Saturday, readers! It seems like just yesterday that Amazon was unleashing what seemed like an endless avalanche of discounts and deals as part of its annual Prime Day event. And while the two-day affair is certainly over, some retailers are already bringing back Prime Day prices on a host of items. Carry Best Buy and Aim as an example, which are selling Kindle with Amazon advertising for just $64.99 ($35 off), its lowest price to date.
Amazon’s newest entry-level Kindle is, in many ways, a budget version of the newer 2021 Kindle Paperwhite. The e-reader packs a 6-inch display with a sharp 300ppi resolution, as well as easier access to ePub files and a USB. -C port for relatively fast charging (finally). The biggest difference between the two models is that the basic Kindle lacks waterproofing, however if all you need are the essentials and an easy way to burn some of our all-time favorite tech books, it’s an easy omission to miss. ignore.

It also provides the same modern, content-focused presentation as the 4K model, which is great when you consider that the device costs less than a single 70mm projection. oppenheimer.
T-Swift tickets aren’t the only thing that seems to be in style these days. In the last year or so, we’ve seen a significant increase in the number of transparent devices available, with standouts like the Beats Studio Buds Plus taking center stage. Nothing’s Ear Stick Headphones are yet another example of this welcome resurgence in transparent technology, one that can currently grab through nothing for $79 ($20 off).
Like the Nothing Ear 2, the Ear Stick is as much about style as it is about substance. The open-style earbuds are an improvement over the first-gen Nothing model, with better battery life, improved pressure controls, and a more balanced sound profile that sounds less muddy than the Ear 1. They’re also made of clear plastic that’s unmistakably Nothing, and it comes with a tube-shaped charging case that’s far sleeker than anything you’ll get from Apple, Google, or just about anyone else.
