Echo Dot

Amazon and Google are going to get into your home somehow. Might as well make the privacy intrusion as painless as possible. Currently, Amazon is offering its Echo Dot (3rd Gen) speaker for a ridiculous nine dollars, or 85% off the usual price. You have to subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited ($8) for at least a month but wow. Meanwhile, new Spotify Premium customers can get a free Google Home Mini (a $49 value).  

Proof Storm Shield Parka
