Lots of COVIDalia at the Amazon USA Gold Box while for fans of Kindle e-reading they have over 130 eBooks on sale

DK Kindle ebook: The Physics Book: Big Ideas Simply Explained for $2 (694 pages)

Among the latest Kindle e-offerings is this nearly-700 page DK ebook, “The Physics Book: Big Ideas Simply Explained” offered for $2. You can “Look Inside” to get a feel for the book and listen to the Audible audiobook sample.

These are of course the big DK coffee-table style books, but this is an ebook, so given that, they are best read on bigger color screens if you want to enjoy the graphics and charts and pictures and such. But if you mostly care for the text, you can read it on the Kindle e-reader too.

As of the time of writing this averages 4.7 out of 5 based on 779 customer ratings.

The link to photography is of course light, plus the physics of camera and lens design and such.

I am tempted to get it after I go through the sample.

UPDATE: a few more of the Big Ideals Simply Explained ebooks are also on sale for $2 each including Ecology, Feminism, History, Religions, Classical Music, Crime Book, Shakespeare, Politics (or as Kinky Friedman called them, poly-ticks), etc. There are at least 20 ebooks in this DK series but only some of them are on sale…

PS: this may be the perfect excuse to justify getting a new 13-inch iPad. “Honey, I need a large screen iPad to read my science books!” πŸ˜‰

PS2: I’m not sure if this is a daily deal or part of the longer running “Kindle deals” that may last from weeks to a month.

The Woot listing [under “Specs”] says Auto Updates expired as of June 2021, however, when you look for Acer C738T at the Google Chrome support page, it says June 2022. Google has been known to push forward expiration dates, but to be on the safe side, be sure to further research it before buying it is something of priority. It is a $100 laptop after all πŸ™‚

A Samsung sale at the Amazon USA Gold Box has the SmartTag Bluetooth Trackers with Item going for $20 while the Qi Wireless Pad (2019 edition) goes for $20 as well…

THEN at the BEst Buy action we go where we find a sale on select Moza camera gimbal stabilizers, and a 18TB WD easystore external HDD for $420 [what a great …number!], Corsair gaming products, and mo(i)re…

Wedn: ONA Brixton, Genaray, Fotodiox, Zhiyun, LG, Galaxy Chromebook 2, Etc

Once again we are at the halftime show in the week, it’s Wednesday and there’s a new half-a-dozen B&H Photo daily deals good until Wednesday 8/18/21 at 11:59pm ET (or earlier IFF sold-out):

+ ONA Brixton Camera/Laptop Messenger Bag for $169 with FREE Canvas Wax, in three color options [the bags, not the wax LOL]

+ Genaray Ultra-Thin Bicolor 144 SMD LED On-Camera Light for $40

+ FotoDiox Selfie Starlite Stix Vlog Light Kit with Light Stand for $78
+ bonus points: it looks professional-y in an influencer-y kind of way

+ Zhiyun-Tech CRANE 2S Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer for $319

+ LG LCD 32UK550-B 31.5″ 16:9 4K FreeSync LCD Gaming Monitor for $275

+ refurb TP-Link Archer AX21 AX1800 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router for $60

Three Windows laptops ($190 HP Celeron, $500 HP i5, $700 Dell Ryzen 7) headline the Best Buy dailies but that’s not all, there’s a non-afterthought Chromebook, one that is not just made with the leftover parts in the warehouse πŸ˜‰ It’s the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 (13.3″ QLED 1080p, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, Intel i3, backlit keyboard, microSD slot, Wifi 6, etc) going for $499 in new condition or $364 in open-box condition. This only in the “Fiesta Red” color-scheme. However, as it is often the case with Samsung, it has just one USB-C port on each side, so a USB-C hub (or two) are your new best friends πŸ™‚

As of the time of writing it averages 4.6 out of 5 based on nearly 200 customer reviews at Best Buy with a 91% “recommend to a friend”. They should also have a “recommend to an enemy” option πŸ™‚

Meanwhile in Wootlandia the headliner is an iPhone-a-pa-looza of Grade A refurbished with 90-day Woot warranty with prices ranging from $28 (MagSafe charger) to $480 (lowest priced iPhone in the sale) to $1180…

UPDATE: two items can be found in the Adorama daily deals (expire Thursday 10am ET or earlier if sold out):

+ Explorer AX-LED915 AuraLED 915 Lightweight LED Light Panel for $59

+ K&F Concept Black and Orange Aluminum Tripod Monopod with Center Axle Transverse for $100

2pk 128GB Lexar Professional Silver SDXC for $50 w/FS

Another “feast” of offers, four of them, at the current iteration of the Adorama daily deals running until Wednesday at 10am ET (or earlier if sold out):

+ 2-pack of 128GB Lexar Professional Silver SDXC cards (UHS-I, 1066x, up to 160MB/s) for $50, that’s $25 per card

Kindle Paperwhite down to $80 (or $70 certified refurbished)

Reading is FUN-da-MENTAL! And if you like to use e-ink e-book-readers for your reading, Amazon has a limited time promotion on their Kindle Paperwhite (8GB storage, waterproof, Ad Supported) going for $80. Or you can buy the “Without Ads” for $100. These are available in four different color schemes even!

Since this is an e-ink device, and not a phone/tablet, the ads are not annoying. You can start with the “Ad Supported” version and if you find you can’t stomach even the lite ads, you can pay Amazon a one time $20 fee to have them removed from a particular device. I personally found some interesting books to read through the ads but everyone’s tolerance to advertising is different.

If you want to save another $10, they have the certified refurbished option for $70. These sold on the Amazon website come with the same 1-year Amazon warranty as the new condition models. Note however that those sold at Woot as used/refurbished, only come with a 90-day warranty.

The one time I bought a certified refurbished Kindle I couldn’t tell the difference between a new and a refurbished. Another time they sent me a warranty-replacement of an early generation Paperwhite, again, I couldn’t tell the difference between new and refurbished.

If you want to sort out the different models, here’s a handy tablet at Wikipedia. The one on sale is the latest Paperwhite model, the Paperwhite 4, launched in November 2018… After that came two newer models in 2019, a new “basic Kindle” and a new “flagship Oasis”…

Tuesday: SpyderX Color, GVM BiC, MeFoto RoadTrip, Westcott X-Drop kit, Etc

Tuesday is here and there’s a new 4-pack of B&H Photo dailies running until Tuesday 8/17/21 at 11:59pm ET (or earlier if sold out):

+ Datacolor SpyderX Color Control Kit for $270

+ MeFoto RoadTrip Aluminum Travel Tripod Kit (Titanium) for $85

+ GVM Bi-Color LED Video Light G100W for $209

+ Westcott X-Drop Kit (5 x 7′, Green Screen) for $74

Yet another external HDD is once again the Best Buy dailies headliner, this time around it is the 14TB WD EasyStore USB 3.0 going for $270… The rest include a 128GB Sandisk Extreme PLUS (not PUS) microSDXC for $33, sale on Instapot multicookers, 1TB Seagate OneTouch external HDD for $50, and even a Hot Wheels mega set (mayhaps a good test subject for camera/lens testing?)…

Bio-bidets are the headliner of the Woot dailies because WATER >> PAPER when it comes to cleaning πŸ™‚ There’s a Brim 19-bar expresso [OOOPS, espresso] machine for $226, WD internal gaming SSD, Defiant Mushroom coffee blend (not sure if this is mushroom or coffee LOL), and more…
