Meanwhile the Meh-rathon is over but the Friday Meh daily deal is a 2-pack of Morphie 6040 mAh power-banks with USB-C port for $18 plus shipping. That’s about one full refill of a modern flagship/big-screen type of a smartphone. BUT if you are using this to charge smaller battery devices (eg true wireless earphones or flip phones) this can last a lot longer…

PSA #1: if you have any music or music data (eg playlists) in your Google Play Music account that you want to download or preserve, Google has sent an email announcing that on February 24 (2021) your music data will be deleted. You can download all your music purchases (and freebies) using Google Takeout, and/or you can transfer them to YouTube Music. You can also transfer your playlists there. Note that YouTube Music forces you to create a YouTube Channel (!!!) in your name if you want to transfer your playlists over… More details via Google Music support
