Amazon Echo tells everyone in your house what you buy. Make it stop

Amazon Echo tells everyone in your house what you buy. Make it stop Alexa doesn’t care if it’s a gift or something private. She’ll tell everything.

At this point in the year, it's a good idea to hold off until Black Friday to see what steep discounts might emerge before pulling the trigger on some tech purchases, including game consoles . But Amazon has a deal on the new Nintendo Switch model right now, if you can't or don't want to wait until the day after Thanksgiving. Amazon is throwing in a $25 gift card when you buy the latest Nintendo Switch , which matches a Switch deal at GameStop.

iDevices' Alexa-powered smart light switch finally goes on sale

iDevices' Alexa-powered smart light switch finally goes on sale One of the problems with smart homes is the variety of different devices and software you need to automate different parts of your house. iDevice is aiming to simplify the smart home experience with the Instinct, a smart light switch with Alexa built-in that was announced last year and is now on sale. The idea is to save precious counter space in your kitchen and control your power, air conditioning and lights all from one location. The light switch doesn't require a separate Alexa device, so you could use it instead of an Echo or other smart speaker.

Save $70

I generally don't recommend spending in the triple digits for a Bluetooth speaker, but this Marshall speaker is the rare exception. It not only looks great with its old-school amp design, but it also sounds great -- if the original Marshall Kilburn is any indication. I've not been in the same room as the Marshall Kilburn II, but I've heard the original and couldn't believe the big, dynamic sound coming out of such a small speaker. And the new version packs in bigger tweeters and woofer along with Bluetooth 5.0 support. At $230, the Marshall Kilburn II is at its lowest price ever. The original Marshall Kilburn speaker is down to $184, but I would hold off to see if it approaches its all-time low of $139 as we get closer to Black Friday.
