Save The Day: Fall Prime Dayz October 10-11

Amazon apparently loved the Summer “Prime Dayz” so much they are now having Fall Prime Dayz as well! They have been announced for October 10 and 11 in 2023, which, just like the Summer Prime Dayz, they “fall” on a Tuesday and Wednesday!

Amazon has already set up a Prime Big Deals Days website with pre-offers and reminders and such.

Amazon is also promising great offers at “Buy with Prime” participating websites, where you get Prime shipping benefits even though it’s outside!

Tuesday: 1TB Samsung T7 Shield for $60, Manfrotto Messengr, Zhiyun CRANE 2S, Oben Tripod, Etc

Can you drink coffee via …Bluetooth? NOT YET! But in the meantime, we have “Bluetooth coffee cups”. No, not what you think. They have detachable Bluetooth …speakers at the bottom!

They have over 920 customer ratings at Amazon with a 4.6 out of 5 average.

I must confess I never thought of this combination. I thought Bluetooth could be used to sitr the drink or heat the drink. Now I’m holding out for the OM-mount version of a tumbler 🙂

The Copyright chapter is the “Kindle sample” so you can watch that ahead of time to see if the whole class might be of interest!

The class is short enough to watch if one is not familiar with these topics. The chapters list shows it will cover copyright, trademark, and how it works when working with others. It ends with a Q&A session.

Meditation homework: I held the camera, you pressed the shutter button, we used Mary’s custom camera settings, Joe recommended taking the picture, Ramani owns the camera, Thuy owns the lens, and Jose suggested the framing. Who owns the image? 😉

CALENDAR REMINDER: we are just three months away from Christmas 2023! Have you began your preparations? Gift-giving and gift-receiving lists? The dollar stores are already out of their Xmas decorations, so the time is mayhaps right to start buying Easter and 4th of July decorations 😉
