Nokia 6 gets an Amazon Prime Exclusive discount, LG G6+ coming

Even if you missed the storm of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there are companies more than happy to satisfy your shopping cravings all the way to next year. Amazon, for example, is putting some of its already discounted Prime Exclusive phones on even more discounts.

Amazon Lord of the Rings show isn’t what you think it is

Amazon Lord of the Rings show isn’t what you think it is

This morning Amazon announced that they'd really, truly secured the rights to make a Lord of the Rings TV show. This is likely the biggest win for the company in their short history in creating media content, and should span well into the future with episodic tales from Middle Earth. The first show that Amazon now owns the rights to make is a prequel to The Fellowship of the Ring.

Moto X4 comes to the US with ads via Amazon Prime Exclusive

Moto X4 comes to the US with ads via Amazon Prime Exclusive

The Moto X4 is one odd smartphone. Coming from Motorola’s former premium line, the Moto X4 has been reduced a somewhat mid-range smartphone. It has been made interesting by the fact that it is one of the few “Amazon Alexa” phones in the market and the first Android One phone for the US. It was promised that a non-Android One Moto X4 would still grace the US. That may have finally come, to some extent, with the Moto X4’s arrival on Amazon Prime Exclusives, unlocked, not exactly cheap, and with ads.

Amazon Prime benefits will soon arrive within Whole Foods stores

Following the FTC's approval of the deal, Amazon has announced the upcoming closure of its Whole Foods Market acquisition, which will take place this upcoming Monday. Once the closure happens, Amazon will kick off a round of changes that will blend the two worlds -- that is, Amazon and Whole Foods -- into a more unified product.

Amazon Prime Day accused of surge pricing for sales

Amazon Prime Day accused of surge pricing for sales

For the third year in a row, Amazon's Prime Day sale managed to smash sales records for the company. Though Prime Day sales can certainly feel a little underwhelming to some folks, the idea of a mid-summer sale to rival Black Friday seems to be working out well for Amazon. According to one vendor, however, Amazon may not be entirely genuine with its customers when it comes to some of the discounts it's presenting to them.
