Nothing beats a modern-day fix for an age-old problem. And is there any problem worse than fumbling to turn off a lamp when you're trying to go to sleep? Or fumbling to turn on a lamp when something goes bump in the night? (OK, yes, there are worse problems. But this is still a big one!)
Thankfully, there's a cheap and easy solution: Toss your 20th-century bedside lights in favor of touchable ones. We've got a 2-pack of them for 50 percent off, along with some other don't-miss Amazon deals, all corralled below.
By the way, you don’t need an Amazon Prime subscription to get these deals, nor to get free shipping — though if you want them delivered quickly, within a day or two, consider signing up for a free 30-day Prime trial.
Ready for some music, baby? The MusiBaby speaker could get by on its amusing name alone, but it's the price that'll make you want to get up and dance. At $22 it's already the best deal on record, but clipping the 5 percent-off coupon drops it even lower: Just under $21.
Modeled in a cheery blue color and designed to go where you go (it promises up to 1,500 minutes of play time on a charge), the speaker features 360-degree audio, an IPX5 waterproof rating (you can splash it, but don't dunk it) and support for second-speaker pairing. (In other words, if you buy two of these, you can use them simultaneously for true stereo sound.)
We haven't tried this model, but over 4,100 Amazon buyers collectively rated it 4.4 stars out of 5. One thing to note: It relies on Micro-USB charging rather than the newer USB-C technology, but that's a minor inconvenience at best.
How do you know when it's time for a router upgrade? When your current router is more than 4-5 years old or you're just not getting good Wi-Fi coverage throughout your house.
TP-Link's model, currently $22 off the regular price, ticks all the important home-network boxes: three external antennas, support for 2.4GHz and 5GHz devices and four Ethernet ports for plugging in devices that might benefit from a wired connection (such as TV streamers and game consoles).
Most telling of all, the router earned a genuinely impressive 4.5-star average rating from well over 50,000 buyers. If you're looking for an affordable Wi-Fi upgrade, this is definitely worth a look.
Fumbling with bedside lamps is so 20th-century. Here in 2021, you can literally just touch a lamp to turn it on or off. You can also plug your phone right into it for overnight charging, because, again, 2021.
Beginning to see the light? (Sorry. So, so sorry.) Here's a 2-pack of dimmable touch lamps for $33 when you apply the correct promo code at checkout. (Use NG3PZP9J if you want the version with gray shades, DIOFD95P to get them with white shades.)
Not only are these 3-way dimmable (touch once for low light, again for medium, again for bright), they also come with two USB ports and an AC outlet, meaning you now have an easy place to plug in your clock radio, smart display or what have you. They even include LED bulbs, though you can swap in any standard E26 bulb if you prefer.
The world was shocked when Simone Biles withdrew from the women's Olympic gymnastics team finals on Tuesday. Simone, the most decorated female gymnast on the world stage, has a history of toughing it out. The official statement from USA Gymnastics said Simone withdrew from the event to focus on her mental health, raising more questions than answers for some.
Marseille-based Films de Force Majeure has boarded “Blue Banks,” the buzzy feature debut from Romania’s Andreea Cristina Borțun, whose latest short film “When Night Meets Dawn” premiered in the Cannes Film Festival’s Directors’ Fortnight section, Variety can reveal. Pic is the story of a single mother trying to raise her son in a poor Romanian […]
Xander Schauffele has been pointing to the Olympics ever since he began his rise into the elite of American golf three years ago. Already with two eagles on his card, Schauffele surged into the 36-hole lead at Kasumigaseki Country Club by finishing with three straight birdies to tie the Olympic record with an 8-under 63. “I just got in a nice flow there at the end,” Schauffele said.
China will ramp up its scrutiny of online ride-hailing firms under plans to strengthen the protection of worker rights and require firms to amend any non-compliant operations, the Ministry of Transport said on Friday. The ministry said in a statement which did not name any companies that it had found that some ride-hailing firms were infringing driver rights while other platforms were disrupting fair competition in the market. Online ride-hailing firms with "illegal" operations will be required to put forth timetables and work plans on how they will expedite the removal of non-complaint vehicles and personnel, it said.
Usain Bolt is disappointed with how Jamaican men's sprinting has developed since he retired and predicts his compatriots will find it tough in Tokyo after his glorious domination of the last three Olympics. With Bolt leading the way in his own inimitable style, Jamaica won all nine men's track sprint finals in Beijing, London and Rio -- although they later lost their 2008 4x100m gold medals after Nesta Carter failed a dope test. While Jamaica's women look very strong going into their Tokyo campaign, triple 100m and 200m Olympic champion Bolt thinks the men will struggle.
Athletes in the Olympic 100 metres are known for their big personalities, radiating the confidence that comes with being the fastest men on Earth, but American sprinter Trayvon Bromell is ready to let his feet do the talking in Tokyo. Humble and hungry, Bromell's unflappable nature will serve him well at the Games as he fights for retired Olympic champion Usain Bolt's throne. His rivals include fellow American Ronnie Baker, who won the Diamond League meet in Monaco earlier this month in 9.91 seconds while Bromell finished a disappointing fifth.
Libya's warring sides said on Friday they had reopened the main coastroad across the frontline, a key element of a ceasefire they agreed last year that has involved months of negotiations. The U.N.-backed 5+5 committee drawn from commander Khalifa Haftar's eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA) and western-based forces that have supported Tripoli-based governments said in a statement the road was open from 0900 GMT. It was not open to military traffic, the committee said, and the agreement also included some preparatory steps for the withdrawal of foreign fighters, another part of last year's ceasefire that has still to be implemented.
Since the military overthrew the elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi in February, dozens of often lightly armed militias have been established across Myanmar and been involved in skirmishes with the far better equipped army. The bodies, which were found in Kani, a town in the central region of Sagaing, had been buried and five were identified as militia fighters, said a Kani militia member.
