Prime Day 2017

Post by LooseGoose on 2017-07-10, 21:54

Started at 9pm tonight. Bought 3 8" Fire HD tablets for $ 120. Pretty good deal for those.

Lol. Posting here and playing Scrabble constitutes 90% of my tablet usage.

I really don't need a new TV, but it has been a while since I bought a new TV, I'm itching to buy a new TV. The 65 incha is unavailable :(

Fire TV probably isn't going on sale, is it? I need to get at least one, and then maybe a fire stick.

Plenty of ideas in the state parks thread. My kids loved tent camping when they were the ages of your kids.

So, I've bought a roomba each prime day. First one for us. Second one as a house warming present to my best friend. And this one we decided to get another one. We have a 2 story house and having more than 1 run would help out. We use our roomba all the time and it's pretty awesome. It helps maintain all the pet hair (3 cats and a dog). I also imagine with having a kid, a little extra help is needed.

I also bought a hand vacuum today. Been meaning to get one anyway.

Can't say I need one, but I might just because.  FWIW if you want the 16GB version, you can get the 8" HD version for the same price as the 7", $49.99

I have one in the kitchen. Answers weather question traffic questions into town daily news briefs all stuff you can turn your radio or tv on in the kitchen and get but this is immediate. But mostly, while cooking I ask her to play my Spotify from my phone or pandora stations and the sound is pretty good.  We've also become pretty good at saying "Alexa, shopping list" then say whatever we need. It goes to the app on our phone and makes it easy when we're in the store.   So easy to not have it but for 100 bucks it's not bad.  I wouldn't say wow man you have to have it, but it's there and sometimes worth it. Also, I'm interested in the Nest thermostat. I guess you can tell Alexa to do things with that.

Oh, and you can order the domino's pizza from your house by telling her to order you one. I'm a not a tech guy. You guys who are better with that will be able to do so much more shit. From find your phone in your house to wire it so the lights go on and off. I'm sure I don't use more than 10% of what it can do.
