Btw, Echo Spot buyers…your Chumby still works

So Amazon announced a smart alarm clock today, the $130 Echo Spot. It works like a smaller Echo Show, allowing you to make calls, including video calls, listen to music, and much more. It’s basically like a modern-day Chumby, said one TechCrunch reporter who has clearly been writing about gadgets for far too long to remember such a thing.

Well, I would very much like an Echo Spot, but I don’t have $130 because I’m going on vacation where I plan to spend that money on beer and not a fancy baby monitor.

But I do have a Chumby!

Or at least, I used to.

I wonder where it is….

How to enable 280 characters on Twitter right now

Yesterday, Twitter announced it would for the first time expand the character count on its service from 140 characters to 280 – double the usual length. However, the functionality is still being tested with a small, randomized group of Twitter users at this time. That’s led some intrepid Twitter users and developers to figure out workarounds in order to tweet with 280 characters now. We’ve rounded up a few of the ways people are switching on 280 characters for themselves, ahead of Twitter’s broader rollout.

Here’s everything Amazon announced today

Amazon held an event in Seattle today, and the announcements were non-stop. From new high-end Echos to talking fish, they had all sorts of stuff to show.

Don’t have time to catch up on all of it? That’s okay. We’ve put it all in one quick, easy-to-digest place. For you. Because we care.
