Amazon is turning up the heat once again in the world of groceries, and specifically grocery delivery, to make its service more enticing in face of competition from Walmart, as well as a host of delivery companies like Postmates. Today, the company announced that it would make Amazon Fresh — the fresh food delivery service it now offers in some 2,000 cities in the US and elsewhere — free to use for Prime members, removing the $14.99/month fee that it was charging for the service up to now.
Clean Space can remove unneeded files that waste space on your drive as well as protect your privacy by making the deleted files unrecoverable.

If you are in a region where power outages often occur, even brief outages, you already know that these outages can result in data loss and damage to computer hardware. To safely protect your computer, it is best practices to invest in a UPS (uninterrupted power supply). A UPS will provide battery backup power to your equipment with enough runtime to allow you to safely shutdown the equipment; especially during extended outages. Today on Amazon I noticed that CyberPower has a UPS system available at a reduced cost that you may want to take advantage of.
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of backing up your personal files. Have a plan (i.e. weekly, daily, etc…); just do it, before disaster hits!

Here at “What’s On My PC” I am into multi-tasking, multi-tools and multi-purpose flashlights that make my life more productive.

It is the Streamlight 66418 Stylus Pro Reach Penlight. It is my go-to light for everything I do, whether it is working on a PC, under the hood of the car, or when camping.

With the included attached side clip and the attached magnetic side clip along with the flexible head, you can let your imagination flow when using this light.
At Amazon, this light is carrying close to 7,000 reviews at the time of this posting, with 79% of those reviews being 5 stars. Streamlight makes good flashlights have been used worldwide by emergency service personnel for years.

I am seeing quite a few of these vertical mice (computer mouse) show up that have been designed and engineered to help reduce muscle strain, wrist pressure and will even help you improve your posture. As you know, Logitech has been around for a long time and if I was going to take the plunge on one of the these, I would definitely recommend the Logitech brand.

You will not find a better value or buy for this 12-Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip at Amazon. I personally own one of these and can attest to its value. The pros – There are 12 outlets with 4 outlets spaced away from the others for those power supply plugs. Low height (thickness). LED light will illuminate when “on” (which may be a nuisance to many). Has excellent review ratings. The only CON I could come up with is that there is no template available for the screw hole mounts. In my case, I avoided the fuss of that and used heavy duty velcro. All-in-All, go for it…
Thanks for visiting! Rick @ What’s On My PC…

I am starting to see more and more of these mini computers. As a matter of fact, I currently use one as my daily computer (ACEPC AK1 Mini PC) and have not experienced any issues thus far; and, have been quite pleased with the performance.
Today, I noticed Amazon has a mini pc deal ($30 off the regular price) that you may want to take a look at (CLICK HERE). If I were buying this, I would research it out further; but, for the price and for what you are getting, this may be a good computer to hook up to that big screen. As I mentioned, I currently own a mini pc (similar to the one on sale) and I have it connected to my flat-screen TV (32 inch) in my garage. — Rick @ What’s On My PC
Check this out… At the time of this posting; Bose SoundSport in-ear headphones for Samsung and Android devices nearly $60 off at Amazon.
Don’t know how long this deal will last, but is worth taking a look at. It is a 512GB memory card. Yes you are reading that right, it is 512 Gigabytes. Make sure, prior to purchasing, that whatever device you want to install this in is compatible and will handle that large of a capacity.
You will find many “indoor” smart plugs, but not many suited for “outdoor” use. The TECKIN Outdoor Wi-Fi Outlet with 2 Sockets solves that problem with its’ weatherproof housing. This smart plug can be controlled with Alexa, Google Home and directly via your smartphone.
Being a techie type of guy who loves tinkering and messing around with just about anything, I have found it is necessary to have a flashlight around at all times. If you are like me, carrying a large light is not practical. This is where the Olight I3T EOS 180 Lumens Dual-Output Slim EDC Flashlight comes into the picture. The only thing I can say to make this review, is that this light is a must-have light and is just plain awesome (very portable, very bright, inexpensive). One AAA-battery powers the light and is a good thing in that you don’t have to stand around waiting for it to charge. Just pop in another battery and you are good to go.
The I3T EOS is a slim tail switch flashlight powered by a single AAA battery with a max output of 180 lumens. It is equipped with an excellent LED paired with a TIR optic lens producing a soft and balanced beam. It is also equipped with a dual direction pocket clip for multiple carrying options such as a pocket or backpack strap. The I3T is an incredibly convenient illumination experience to take with you everywhere.
Long Story Short: Buy a cleaning kit made exclusively to clean the screen on your smartphone. Smartphones are not cheap and the last thing you want to do is ruin the screen on your phone. You will see various DIY mixtures, but I have found it is best to get a product that is already packaged in a spray bottle that often comes packaged with a lint-free microfibre cloth. You will not regret it and you will find you will be cleaning and sanitizing your phone more often. Always spray the solution on the cloth and not directly on your phone or other devices.
What you don’t want to do: Due to the special coating on many of these smartphones, do not use household cleaners such as window cleaners, aerosol spray cleaners, solvents of any kind, bleach, ammonia, undiluted alcohol, or hydrogen peroxide.
Where to buy: If you look on Amazon (click here) you will find an array of products made exclusively to clean smartphones. The one that I specifically selected is the WHOOSH! Screen Cleaner Kit. The cleaner is designed to clean eyeglasses, smartphone, laptops, tablets, HDTV’s, and wearable tech, such as smartwatches. The kit is reasonably priced and ships with a large and small (portable) container of the cleaner with Two 6′ x 6′ cloths + BONUS Poo cloth.
I highly recommend this little fan… Rechargeable with long run time. Great for at your computer desk, camping, kitchen, etc… I have one of these and I was surprised by how much air this puts out. The lithium battery in this is removal/replaceable and the fan can run solely off of a USB connection. Also, has a built-in light(s). Over 2300 reviews on this little bugger. Highly recommend…
Always wake up on the right side of the bed with the USB Charging Alarm Clock Radio by Electrohome. This device’s built-in USB port means you’ll never be looking for the charger of your smartphone, tablet or mp3 player. This and a collection of other awesome features, including time projection automatic time set, long lasting battery backup, programmable dual alarm, and digital phase locked loop radio tuner, make this one reliable clock radio you can depend on.
I came across this bargain this morning and what caught my attention was not only the price but that this outlet (with USB ports) also has a level (900 joules) of surge protection built in. To me, that is huge to find this in this type of outlet.
Get more bang for your buck with this deal. Today I am seeing a combo package of the myQ Smart Garage Door Opener (Chamberlain MYQ-G0301) + Amazon Cloud Cam, giving you a substantial savings (of $68), if you purchased these two items separately.
