Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday and the holidays in general, tis the season for online shopping. Have you ever read an Amazon review, and then later searched for that same review, only to not be able to find it? Frustrating, isn’t it? Here’s how to search for a particular review on Amazon.
We just received our Amazon Echo Look (it’s currently by invitation only), and here is our review based on our initial impressions. First and foremost, this thing is much smaller than we ever would have imagined. Second, it is a full-on Amazon Echo, with Alexa and all of her tricks packed into its diminutive body. And third, it’s both more, and less, of a privacy nightmare than we’d initially thought it would be. Lastly, it’s great for selfies!
Do you want to get free stuff through Amazon in exchange for writing a review on Amazon of the free stuff that you got? You can! It’s relatively easy, so long as you’re willing to put in the time to write reviews! Here’s how.
A new report by the UK’s top Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, David Anderson, says that bulk interception and acquisition of Internet and communications data is of ‘vital utility’ to security and intelligence agencies.
If you run in certain circles, you may be hearing people swooning over the Starry Wireless Internet appliance and service. “Starry is a radical new Internet service!” “The Starry router requires no cable, no contract, no technician.” Starry “will revolutionize how we connect to the internet.” “When you move, you just take it with you!” Not so much, at least not yet.
There are many banned words that are prohibited in Amazon reviews, and that will get your review rejected in a New York minute. Unhelpfully, Amazon doesn’t offer a list of forbidden words, and they don’t let you know the offending word or words in their rejection notice. So we have decided to create a list here. Below are the words that we know or suspect will get your review rejected by Amazon – please help fellow Amazon reviewers by adding to this list.
As more and more people are finally getting their Amazon Echo, and more are wanting to order one, we offer our Amazon Echo series, including the unboxing, our review of the Echo and its features and uses, a list of commands for the Echo, and some tips and tricks for the Amazon Echo. This is part 1, with the unboxing, setup, and our initial review.
If you haven’t heard about the Zooka wireless (bluetooth) speaker bar (the speakers are at either end of a single bar), it’s a wireless bluetooth speaker for your iPhone or Android phone, or iPad or other tablet (or, even, your laptop). But the Zooka wireless bar instructions leave a lot to be desired in terms of explaining how to hook up your Zooka bluetooth speakers, so here are clearer instructions.
Launch, the new book from massively successful launch entrepreneur Jeff Walker, answers the questions “How to launch a startup” in the Internet world, as well as how to launch an app, how to launch a website, or even generally how to launch a product (after all, an app or a website is, by many measures, a product). It is equally applicable if you are looking to reboot a business, product, or service.
Many consumers rely heavily on the reviews of others before making purchase decisions. Whether Amazon, Yelp, Trip Advisor or Expedia, consumer reviews tend to heavily influence all types of purchase decisions, from toasters to vacations.
We have toyed with the idea of getting an iPhone 4 case with battery for some time now, but until now we hadn’t done much beyond comparing the various iPhone 4 battery cases. But recently we found ourselves in need of an extended battery for the iPhone 4s (and thus an iPhone 4 extended battery case – or, as they are sometimes known, an iPhone 4 charger case). In fact, an iPhone 4 battery pack case, battery charger case, and battery case all refer to the same thing: an iPhone 4 rechargeable battery case. This is because a battery case for the iPhone 4 (and the iPhone 5, for that matter) contains an external battery pack which in turn feeds a charge to your native iPhone battery. This is our iPhone 4 battery case review with our pick for the best case, after looking at several types of iPhone charger cases (although we did not review the once-popular Exolife iPhone 4 battery case, as they are currenty not available).
A new category of reviews has been added to Yelp: correctional facilities. Yes, believe it or not, there are reviews for prisons and jails from coast to coast, including Rikers Island (New York) to the Los Angeles County Jail (California) and locations in-between.
Like so many others today, we received a visit from the Apple fairy. She left us a shiny new iPad Mini in our mailbox. But unlike many others, we are writing up our first impressions for you, our readers. Here is our review, and first impressions, of the iPad Mini and, of course, the mini iPad Smart Cover or, as we call it, the ‘magic cover’.
Mitt Romney’s “Binders full of women” comment is continuing to make waves as the Avery Durable View Binder on Amazon.com is gaining reviews, not so much for their organizing ability, but for their ability to keep women.
Bots generate at least 10% of all online traffic, according to data released today by Solve Media, a company that provides security authentication solutions through CAPTCHA-based advertising technology.
