Znamy datę Amazon Prime Day 2020

Działania podjęte przeciw wirusowi z Wuhanu stały się przyczyną załamania systemu dostaw z chińskich fabryk. Ten problem dotknął także Amazon. Zapewne z tego powodu tegoroczny Prime Day w Amazonie został przesunięty z lipca na październik. Amazon podał już oficjalnie, że nowa data to 13-14 października 2020 r.

Aby skorzystać ze specjalnych ofert w tych dniach, trzeba się przyłączyć (choć na chwilę) do programu Amazon Prime. Dopóki nie ma sklepu amazon.pl, korzyści płynące z członkostwa są dla nas bardzo ograniczone. W ramach comiesięcznej opłaty wnoszonej na rzecz np. amazon.de, klienci sklepu mogą liczyć m.in. na bezpłatne dostawy, zwroty czy dostęp do specjalnych promocji. Nie ma polskiego Amazonu, więc nas to nie obejmuje. Program Prime działa dla klientów w Stanach Zjednoczonych, Wielkiej Brytanii, ZEA, Hiszpanii, Singapurze, Holandii, Meksyku, Luksemburgu, Japonii, Włoszech, RFN, Francji, Chinach, Kanadzie, Belgii, Austrii, Australii oraz po raz pierwszy w tym roku – Brazylii i Turcji. Do Polski dostawy są wciąż bezpłatne przy wartości zakupów od 39 EUR.

 

Echo Studio - jedna z tegorocznych premier urządzeń firmowanych przez Amazon (źródło: amazon.de)

 

Prime Day to okazja do promocji cenowych, głównie produktów firmowanych przez Amazon i wiążących klientów z ekosystemem firmy. Znamienne, że kilka dni temu ogłoszono premierę nowych wersji wielu urządzeń zintegrowanych z asystentką głosową Alexa:

- Amazon Echo Dot;

- Amazon Echo Studio;

- Amazon Echo Show.

 

W Echo Show połączono głośnik Echo z tabletem (źródło: amazon.de)

 

Działanie tych urządzeń polega głównie na słuchaniu i reagowaniu na plecenia głosowe wydawane przez domowników. Można w ten sposób np. dokonywać różnych zakupów czy uruchamiać amazonowe usługi. Produkty te nie są jednak wysyłane do Polski. Przy okazji prezentowania wspomnianych wyżej nowości spod znaku Amazonu, nie pokazano jednak nowego modelu czytnika Kindle.

 

Aby korzystać z promocji, trzeba choć na chwilę przystąpić do programu Prime (źródło: amazon.de)

 

Promocje w dniach 13-14 X będą dostępne do uczestników programu Prime. Aby z nich skorzystać, trzeba się przyłączyć. Na początku otrzymujemy miesięczny bezpłatny okres testowy (zazwyczaj jeśli ktoś wcześniej z niego nie korzystał). Potem członkostwo jest płatne. Przy opłatach miesięcznych to koszt 7,99 EUR, a płacąc za cały rok z góry, miesięczny dostęp kosztuje 5,75 EUR. Warto pamiętać o anulowaniu subskrypcji przed upływem 30 dni. Polecam wpis „Jak anulować Amazon Prime – poradnik”. Przystępując do programu Prime my akurat możemy korzystać z Amazon Prime Video (są tu także polskie wersje językowe). To może być jeden z argumentów za wykupieniem abonamentu na dłuższy czas.

 

Póki co, oferty dla członków programu Prime obejmują urządzenia odnowione (źródło: amazon.de)

 

Amerykańska centrala już wychodzi z ofertami dla członków programu. Na przykład proponuje teraz 30 USD zniżki na odnowione czytniki Kindle 10. W niemieckim Amazonie podobnie. Na przykład (niewysyłany do Polski) odnowiony tablet Fire HD można teraz kupić ponad 50 EUR taniej. Wersja z 32 GB pamięci wewnętrznej kosztuje 78,95 EUR (zamiast 131,59 EUR).

 

Ale czego my możemy się spodziewać?

Trudno powiedzieć na co możemy liczyć, ale w zeszłym roku czytniki Kindle Paperwhite 4 można było kupić za ok. 390 PLN, a Kindle 10 za ok. 240 PLN. Aby się przekonać, jak będzie w tym roku, musimy poczekać niecałe dwa tygodnie...

Book Review : city of heavenly fire Cassandra clare
City of Heavenly Fire - Cassandra Clare

June 29-July 19

Shadowhunters and demons square off for the final showdown in the spellbinding, seductive conclusion to the #1 New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

Darkness has descended on the Shadowhunter world. Chaos and destruction overwhelm the Nephilim as Clary, Jace, Simon, and their friends band together to fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother. Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell. Nothing in this world can defeat Sebastian—but if they journey to the realm of demons, they just might have a chance…

Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world will change. Who will survive the explosive sixth and final installment of the Mortal Instruments series?


Review: All the feels the end of this series we get more from some new characters Emma and Julian and the whole blackthorn family who are going to be in Lady midnight. Sebastion attacks the institute he changes Julian father into a dark Shadowhunter. They all get into the portal . Jace is learning how to deal with the hevenly fire in his body. Every has to go to Idris and Simon has to stay behind . Jordan is watching over simon as his bodyguard but then simon gets taken . A bunch of werewolves get killed sebastian kills Jordan . Maia was planning on breaking up with Jordan which I kinda guessed was going to happen . Maureen takes simon but Raphael helps him escape and gets him to idris . Where he drinks some spoiled blood and drunkly tells izzy he loves her . Maia becomes head of the werewolves. Brother Zachariah becomes human again .
Simon , alec ,clary ,Izzy and Jace all go to the demon relm

Where you know is definitely time to have sexy times clary and Jace

They finally get to sebastian and they trick him long enough for clary to stab him. For them to leave the demon relm they call on magnus father who wants magnus immortality which means he will die but simon volunteers instead but the demon wants his memories . Simon agrees and clary cries when she goes back. Jace says he officially wants to be a herondale. Magnus helps simon remember a little . Tessa and Clary meet
Loved the ending I cried .

Quotes :

Simon , you're blushing, observed Jace. And you're a vampire and almost never blush, so this better be really juicy . And weird

Herondales." Zachariah's voice was a breath, half laughter, half pain. "I had almost forgotten. No other family does so much for love, or feels so much guilt for it. Don't carry the weight of the world on you, Jace. It's too heavy for even a Herondale to bear.”

WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING?" There was a sound of shattering glass, and they both sat up to see Alec glaring at them. He had dropped the empty bottle of wine he had been carrying, and there were bits of sparkly glass all over the cave floor. "WHY CAN'T YOU GO SOMEWHERE ELSE TO DO THESE HORRIBLE THINGS? MY EYES."

"It's a demon realm, Alec," Isabelle said. "There's nowhere for us to go."

"And you said I should look after her-" Simon began, then realized that would not be a productive line of conversation, and shut up.”

Herondales." Zachariah's voice was a breath, half laughter, half pain. "I had almost forgotten. No other family does so much for love, or feels so much guilt for it. Don't carry the weight of the world on you, Jace. It's too heavy for even a Herondale to bear.”

Jem: Come in.
Jace: Where's Brother Zachariah?
Jem: I'm right here. Jace Herondale. And once more a Herondale is the object of my deliverance. I should have anticipated.”


Okayyyyy,” Isabelle said in a low voice, “When did Brother Zachariah get hot?”

I did not make a pie,” Alec repeated, gesturing expressively with one hand, “for three reasons. One, because I do not have any pie ingredients. Two, because I don’t actually
know how to make a pie.”
He paused, clearly waiting.
Removing his sword and leaning it against the cave wall, Jace said warily, “And three?”
“Because I am not your bitch,” Alec said, clearly pleased with himself.”

'Like A House On Fire' by Caroline Hulse
Like A House On Fire - Caroline Hulse

Family life so closely observed it will make you laugh, wince and go – ‘So other people do that as well.’ Like her previous book,

 

‘The Adults’, ‘Like A House On Fire’ is a ‘what could possibly go wrong?’ novel where the answer is, ‘just about everything.’ Hulse has a talent for exposing all the stresses and strains of family life and using them to build a comic farce that is laugh-out-loud funny and cringe-worthily honest. Her dialogue is perfect,

 

The premise seems simple enough: a nice party for family and friends to celebrate Margaret’s fortieth wedding anniversary and to spice things up, the party will be structured around a Murder Mystery with guests playing the key roles.

 

Except that Margaret has cancer, and one of her daughters has separated from her husband but hasn’t told anyone in the family yet so she persuades him to come along and pretend everything is fine, while her other daughter, the dutiful, responsible, always positive one, is so depressed she can’t get out of bed and Margaret’s husband, who took a little job at the supermarket so he’d have something to do outside his shed now he’s retired, cannot adjust to a world were saying, ‘Cheer up love. It might never happen’ to a customer is not seen as appropriate and calling the ‘World Food’ aisle the ethnic section is seen as offensive, and where the young granddaughter has developed an unhealthy obsession with setting fire to thing. The characters all ring true both in how they see themselves in the privacy of their own heads and how they all misunderstand one another while trying hard to pretend nothing fundamentally bad is happening.

 

One of the main subplots is around how Stella, one of Margaret’s daughters, comes to separate from George. Bit by bit, we learn how they met, what they liked about each other, what they fought about and what finally drove them apart (which was probably a Coke can – you have to know the context for that to make sense). It’s the little details that bring this alive, like Stella’s simple requests to George when they move in together: can he please close cupboards and drawers after using them and please stop switching off the kettle and the toaster at the wall. George is, of course, incapable of remembering these instructions or understanding why they’re important. This stuck with me because my wife also keeps asking me to close cupboards and doors, even though I’m going to have to open them again shortly.

 

The book is cleverly structured for everything to slide slowly but inexorably towards disaster. I kept thinking: ‘This can’t get any worse’ but I knew that it would but not exactly how. Each frustration and misunderstanding and incompatibility is a small thing but they build up like rubbish blown against a fire door in a hot dry summer.

 

At one point, waiting for the disaster, whatever it was going to be, to happen became so angst-laden that I found myself hoping that the ancient labrador would make it safely to the end of the book, which, given all the other people involved and the traumas they were facing, may say a lot about my priorities.

 

What really set Hulse apart for me is that she doesn’t just use her characters as kindling for a comic fire, she carries them through the traumas and allows them to be changed but not destroyed by them. I thought the way things played out for everyone was on the hopeful, ‘phew, that was close’ side of things but remained credible.

 

The only thing in the book that I thought was a little clumsy was the murder mystery game but this may have been because it was difficult to cope with all those instructions in an audiobook.

 

I still recommend the audiobook. Rachael Louise Miller did a fine job with the narration.

Everything You Need To Know About Security Alarm System

With the increasing number of robberies, crimes, and accidents, installing a security alarm system has become necessary. Regardless of a residential or commercial property, keeping people safe within the premises becomes the prime responsibility of the owner. In this modern and fast-paced world, almost every day, we hear about the damage caused by a lack of proper security. Before we dive deeper into the information about security alarm systems, let’s have brief information about what precisely the term security means.

 

What Is Security?

 

Security refers to protecting humans and physical properties from damage. When it comes to your home security, you may be worried about the security of your family, jewelry, expensive gadgets, cash, and other valuables. In the case of commercial premises, there is always a concern about protecting the people working there, and fear about losing devices, important data, credit card details, and documents. Due to the robberies, crimes, and fire accidents, people face human and property loss to a great extent that cannot be even reimbursed by insurance claims. Security is all about the measures taken to protect property and ensure that only people with permission enter or leave it.

 

People take different measures to ensure security, some of them are –

 

  • Hiring Security Guards
  • CCTV Camera Installation
  • Intruder Alarm Installation
  • Burglar Alarm Installation
  • Fire Alarm Installation

 

Why Is the Security Alarm System Preferred?

The security guards are, after all, humans and can remain mentally absent or fall asleep, and there can be a lapse in security. Moreover, the burglars and criminals these days are smart enough to tweak security cameras so that they don’t get identified. So, it is always preferred to get a burglar alarm and fire alarm installed with the security cameras to avail full protection of the property.

The burglar alarms and fire alarms are the most proven methods of keeping the security intact, as it notifies about a suspicious entry in the property or fire triggering on an instant basis, helping you to take prompt action and save yourself from damages.

Now, let’s gather some more information about these security alarm systems.

 

What Is a Security Alarm System?

 

A security alarm system is a set of electrical components connected and installed to a property. This set of electrical components include –

 

  • Motion Sensors
  • Glass Break Detectors
  • Cameras
  • Smoke Detectors
  • Carbon Monoxide Detectors

 

There are many different types of security alarm systems available these days, let’s have brief information about some of them.

 

Burglar Alarm System

As the name specifies, the burglar alarm system produces a loud alarm whenever there is a suspicious entry to your property. Nowadays, the burglar alarm installation is most commonly seen at residential properties like homes, garages for and commercial properties like offices, warehouses, factories, shops, restaurants, hotels, etc. to protect from thefts.

 

Intruder Alarm System

 

The intruder alarm system consists of a control panel with a rechargeable battery, motion detectors, and at least one external sounder. It generates a loud alarm and notifies you whenever there is any suspicious entry to your property. The intruder alarm installation is commonly done in residential and commercial properties to protect your family and staff members from physical damages.

 

Fire Alarm System

 

Imagine how painful it is to see a fire accident occurring in a property. It can be a great loss of people, important documents, valuables, and entire property. If you get to know about the fire on an initial stage, you can apply a fire extinguisher and save from damages occurring due to fire. This is why fire alarm installation is done in most of the properties these days so that you are notified on an initial stage. Even if there is an occurrence of the smoke of carbon monoxide in the particular area where fire alarm installation has been done, you get to hear loud alarms and thus can take quick action.

 

Conclusion

 

The technology pertaining to security alarm systems is evolving, and many new innovative systems are coming up that provide high-end security from burglaries, crimes, and fire. Moreover, there are many reputed fire, burglary, and intruder alarm installation service providers you can rely on to ensure the security of your property.
