Thousands upon thousands of popular products went on sale with deep discounts last year during Prime Day, and most of the best-sellers among our readers were high-profile items. Examples include the Echo Dot, Instant Pots, wireless noise cancelling headphones, and Apple’s AirPods Pro (which, by the way, are on sale right now with double the discount from last year). Despite Amazon’s massive efforts in promoting those popular products, however, there was one device from a relatively unknown brand that sold just as well as anything else we covered last year.

Now, that wildly popular deal is back at the same all-time low price!

New Amazon One Lets You Use Your Palm to Make Payments

Amazon announced a new payment technology on Tuesday, which uses the palm of your hand instead of plastic or cash.

  • The e-commerce giant plans to test its Amazon One palm scanners at two of its physical stores in Seattle.
  • Some details remain unclear, but privacy concerns could be a major obstacle to widespread adoption.

Astronauts have to worry about radiation in space? Let’s stick to robots

To the editor: Data collected by a Chinese lunar lander on the far side of the moon show that radiation in outer space, which our atmosphere protects us from, could cause cancer in astronauts sent to the moon and Mars unless they are protected by thick-walled space vehicles or shelters.

Radiation danger to astronauts is not the only “dark side” of sending humans deep into space. Another is the enormous cost of these missions, which could absorb funds needed for infrastructure upgrades and investment in renewable energy.

Furthermore, sending humans to the moon and Mars serves no useful purpose. We would learn nothing new about the moon and Mars that we haven’t already learned from the robots that we have sent at a fraction of the cost of manned missions.

This Dieter Rams-inspired speaker lets you focus on the music and without any smartphone distractions!

This Dieter Rams-Inspired Speaker Brings the Simplicity of the 1950s to Bluetooth

Music is sometimes the only company you need, whether you’re listening to your favorite artist with your ears perked up beside the speaker or letting jazz fill in the background while you work. With quarantine, however, it can sometimes feel difficult to just let listening to music be an activity in and of itself. The list of distractions and temptations is literally endless – the timeline never runs dry. Instagram’s feed is ever-changing and endlessly refreshable, as another text message rings and more unread emails pile up, and Twitter has the latest and most accessible updates out there. But this new Dieter Rams-inspired Bluetooth speaker design encourages you to click the lock button and stow the phone away if only for a song.

The design’s concept is visually approachable and inviting, with a single speaker on the product

Xbox Series X: Here’s How Much Storage Space It Actually Lets You Use

Xbox Series X and Series S are coming in November, and Microsoft has taken the wraps off of the full tech specs. That includes the 1TB SSD that will store your games on Xbox Series X, but as usual for game consoles, not every bit of that storage space will actually be usable.

In GameSpot’s Xbox Series X hands-on preview, Michael Higham confirmed that the usable space in the SSD is 802GB. That roughly cuts your usable space by 1/5 right from the start.

You also might need at least some space to facilitate the Quick Resume feature since it appears to need space to store those files from RAM. Microsoft’s Jason Ronald previously said in a storage primer that the feature keeps the game state data as a persistent file on the internal SSD.

The Xbox Series S comes with a 512GB SSD, which will also likely have less
