Amazon announced its Amazon Key home delivery service late last year, allowing Amazon Prime members to remotely unlock and monitor their front door using a kit consisting of an Amazon Cloud Cam security camera and a compatible smart lock. Aside from being able to detect when someone is entering your home, Amazon Key can also let you grant access to an Amazon delivery personnel so they can leave your package in your home, instead of at your doorstep where anyone could grab it.
Following last month’s release of HomePod, which puts Siri inside of a $ 349 smart speaker, Apple appears to be ramping up Siri hiring. According to hiring data tracked by Thinknum, job openings for Siri-related positions at Apple are at an all-time high…

We just posted a deal on the dual-SIM versions of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ yesterday, but now the Note8 has been discounted by the same seller. The current price of $ 699.99 makes this cheaper than both the S9 and S9+, and this is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for a dual-SIM Note8.
The most valuable public company in the world is getting even more valuable. Apple’s market cap is at an all-time high of more than $ 922 billion. Soon it could be the first company to reach a $ 1 trillion valuation.
The current valuation follows a somewhat disappointing earnings report last month in which Apple shipped fewer iPhones than analysts had forecasted. Those numbers, however, didn’t deter investors. The stock has risen 40 percent since then to a high today of $ 182 per share.
Apple’s HomePod is only a few weeks old which means that special deals on the smart speaker are hard to come by. In fact, the standard $ 349 (+$ 30~ tax) price is pretty much what you would expect to pay if you were looking to pick a HomePod up, at least until you saw the headline for this post.
There are great deals, and then there are great deals. These are the latter kind: Right now, you can get the best prices we’ve ever seen on certain iPads and iMacs. Or you can score a $60 cash card when you purchase an Apple Watch from a certain retailer. You’ll find those great buys and […]
While 2017 saw market leader bitcoin making frequent headlines thanks to its soaring valuations, 2018 is already proving to be a big year for the second and third most popular cryptocurrencies, ripple and ethereum, respectively.
Ethereum also hit a new high on the 4th, breaking the $ 1,000 threshold for the first time. The cryptocurrency currently sits at $ 1,027.27 with a market cap of just over $ 99 billion.
The value of a single unit of ripple or ethereum is still far below that of a unit of bitcoin (currently $ 15,125 per), and the leading crypto’s market cap of $ 253 billion is almost twice that of its nearest competitor.
However, the silver and bronze cryptos are quickly closing that market cap gap, with ripple’s market cap increasing by $ 49 billion and ether’s by $ 26 billion just in the four days since 2017 drew to a close.
The Future of Money
Overall, the crypto market has surged from $ 17 billion to almost $ 770 billion in the past year. Based on the latest figures for ripple and ether, society’s interest in cryptocurrencies clearly extends beyond a single coin.
As more and more people invest in crypto, be it bitcoin, ether, or ripple, the likelihood that this new form of currency is here to stay increases.

Bitcoin is not the only cryptocurrency experiencing a healthy increase in price these days: Ethereum has suddenly surged past the $ 400 mark to hit an all-time high price value. After months of fluctuating at around $ 320, the second biggest cryptocurrency by market share managed to surpass the $ 400 threshold to set a record high price of $ 414 (at the time of writing), according to data from EthereumPrice. For context, this amounts to a little more than a 13-percent jump in price over the last 24 hours. Check out this graph for more details: In addition to its new all-time high price,…
