Daily Links and Deals: Audiobooks are crushing ebooks

daily_links_1Today, if you trust the numbers, audiobooks seem to be outperforming ebooks. Also, stories on Evernote’s changes and price hike, a look at used hard drives and some important information about your warranty rights under the law. In deals, deals on tents, BBC comedies and savings on RavPower chargers and accessories.

Daily Links for Wednesday, June 29, 2016:

Evernote announces price hike, device restrictions for Basic package (ZD Net) If two devices is not enough for you,, you may be looking at an upgrade.

Used hard drives on eBay, Craigslist are often still ripe with leftover data (PC World) And this is a cautionary tale….

How Sony, Microsoft, and Other Gadget Makers Violate Federal Warranty Law (Motherboard) Know your rights! This is information you need to know.

Audiobooks are crushing ebooks (Quartz) I wonder if part of this also has to do with the fact that people who listen to audiobooks are used to paying more?

(A note on Daily Deals: All prices current at the time of posting and subject to change. Most items marked Daily Deals are good for only the day posted.

Many large promotions have discount pricing that is set by the publisher. This usually means that titles can be found at a discount price across most platforms (with iTunes sometimes being the exception). If you have a favorite retailer you like to patronize, check the title on that website. There is a good chance that they will be matching the sale price.)

A Head Start on Black Friday Deals

kindle_fireIf you like to shop online and are ready to get a head start on your holiday shopping, Amazon has already started their Black Friday deals sales. New lightning deals are now appearing every 10 minutes. You never know what you are going to see in these sales- last year I saw a trolling motor for a boat as a lightning deal! 🙂

There are also some very good deals in electronics, including a Kindle Fire HDX 7″, HDX Display, Wi-Fi, 64 GB – Includes Special Offers (Previous Generation – 3rd) for only $219 and a Certified Refurbished Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ 4G LTE Wireless, Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, 64 GB – Includes Special Offers for only $199. (That one is pretty tempting!) The 32 GB version is only $179.

There are also deals on tablets, desktops, musical equipment, audio and fitness gear, so there’s a lot to choose from.

This year, the Brick and Mortar stores will be starting deals as early as Thanksgiving night for the Black Friday sales. What do you think of the idea?
