From the Editor’s Desk: Well, if you’re going to call it a holiday…


‘Twas the night before Prime Day,
And all through AC,
Every creature was scurrying,
For all the great deals to see.
The wishlists were stocked
And alerts set with care,
In hopes that soon
Great savings would be there.

Don’t worry, I’m not gonna do the whole thing, but you can’t deny the holiday-like flurry Prime Day has managed to spark in just four years. There are a lot of deals to be had tomorrow, and there are even great deals to be had right now, but today, the most important preparation I’m making isn’t setting up voice ordering on my Amazon Echo or unlocking coupons with AR in the Amazon app.

No, today, I’m making my wishlist with all of the items I hope to catch on sale the next two days, and I highly suggest you do the same.

Amazon will notify you when a lightning deal starts for an item on your wishlist, so whether you need a pocket-friendly charger or a portable battery that’s actually portable or you’re hoping to grab a Chromebook for cheap, or even just need some pocketed yoga pants, put it on your wishlist now. This should give you a leg up when the deals start flying fast and furious at 3AM Eastern.

Getting away from Prime Day for a bit, it’s been another relatively quiet week in the Android world. Android Q Beta 5 is here, and surprise, surprise, we all still hate the gesture system. US companies can work with Huawei again — well, sort of — which we discussed at length in this week’s AC Podcast, where we also discussed Amazon and Google’s handling of voice recordings and the latest Note 10 leaks.

Did I say it was a quiet week? Silly me.

When the packing peanuts settle after Prime Day, we’ll be going full speed ahead towards the Note 10 launch at the beginning of August and the general release of Android Q, at which point we can only hope that most of the kids with Google gestures have been worked out. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go add a nice big bottle of Aleve to my Amazon wishlist for tomorrow.
