Snapchat adds links, backdrops, voice filters and more in latest update

Published

It’s officially almost the weekend and if you got something fun planned, you may want to consider sharing it with your friends/family over Snapchat. In the most recent update — available now on the Google Play Store — Snapchat added a handful of fun new tools to help users get more creative with their snaps.

The first is the ability to buy Geofilters for special events (graduations, weddings, birthdays). Prices start at $5.99 and you can buy them directly inside the app by diving in to the settings. It’s a fun, easy way for Snapchat for further monetize the app, and what better way than with a filter your friends and family can use at your next big event.

Users can also (finally) add links to their Snaps. They’re calling it Paperclips and once added to your snap, viewers can swipe up to visit the website. This will no doubt be a big hit for brands and websites looking to drive traffic to their websites (our site included).

Other tools include the ability to add fun Backdrops, with a Scissor tool to cut them around your subject, and all new voice filters. It’s not a groundbreaking update, but one that further cements Snapchat as the hip destination for today’s youth.

We’re now officially counting down the days until Instagram copies every last one of these features and rebrands them their own.

10 Crazy Deals you SHOULD NOT miss on Amazon today

Published

on

By

Amazon Prime Day is going on right now. It’s Amazon’s annual highlight sales event that’s akin to Black Friday, and the deals will be flying all day long.

There will be hundreds of thousands of deals available over the course of the day, and we know that’s an impossible number to keep up with. Thus, we’ve picked out 10 amazing deals you absolutely don’t want to miss on Amazon today!

Amazon Echo is 50% Off

That’s right: the Amazon Echo is down to just $89 with this 50% price reduction. That is the biggest discount we’ve ever seen for any product in this new category, and in turn, makes it the cheapest. With tens of thousands of Alexa Skills at its disposal, this should be on your radar if a smart home hub is what you’re after. Expect this one to sell out fast.

55-inch 4K LED TV for $599

Amazon isn’t spilling the beans on the brand or model just yet, but a 55-inch 4K LED smart TV will be going for $599 at some point today. This is typically the sweet spot you want to be at for a good 4K TV deal. It’s not the first or last time you’ll see a 55-inch 4K TV this cheap, but depending on the exact brand and model it could be worth pulling the trigger.

SHOP AT AMAZON

A Tablet Under $30

Amazon’s Fire 7 tablet is normally $49.99, but Amazon Prime Day will bring it down to just $29.99. For a 7-inch no-nonsense tablet that can handle games, Netflix, reading, and more, it’s a pretty damn good deal.

SHOP AT AMAZON

A Better Tablet Just Under $100

If you have a bit more to work with in your budget, the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is $40 off, with the total before checkout being $89. It offers an HD display, and the best part is that you can take that goofy looking case off if you don’t have any children you need to protect it from.

SHOP AT AMAZON

iRobot’s Roomba Vacuum for $249

Normally going for $375, iRobot’s Roomba Vacuum is up for a steep 33% discount today, bringing its cost down to $249. This thing will roam around your home and suck up dirt, lint, and whatever other unmentionables may be strewn about the carpet and hardwood, all without you having to direct its path. You’re going to have to clean everything else, though.

SHOP AT AMAZON

$60 off the Fitbit Blaze

Fitness buffs rae going to love this one: the Fitbit Blaze is $60 off once you hit checkout. That’ll bring it down from $198 to around $138 before other charges. This was the first Fitbit device with a full color display, and at this price it’s pretty hard to recommend anything else.

SHOP AT AMAZON

August Smart Lock is $50 Off

It’s becoming cheaper and easier than ever to upgrade your home with smarts. August’s Smart Lock — one of the tops in the industry — will be $50 off, which should bring it down to around $150 after all is said and done.

SHOP AT AMAZON

$15 Off the Echo Dot

This is a bit more modest compared to Amazon’s other deals, but sweet nonetheless. Take $15 off an Echo Dot, which brings its cost down to $34.99. It offers Alexa access, albeit at a much smaller footprint and with speakers not nearly as loud.

SHOP AT AMAZON

Up to $20 Off Amazon Prime Now orders

New to Amazon Prime Now, the company’s up-to-the-hour delivery service? You’ll get $10 off your first order, and if you use coupon code 10PRIMEDAY you’ll also get $10 off your next one.

SHOP AT AMAZON

Upgrade Grandma’s TV for just $200

If you or someone you know needs to step out of the stone ages and get them upgraded to a basic HDTV, Amazon has TCL’s 40-inch 1080p model going for just $200.

SHOP AT AMAZON

Add a 28-inch to your kitchen

Just for giggles, of course. A 28-inch 720p TV from TCL isn’t going to be the ideal slate for regular viewing, but if you’ve always wanted a TV in some obscure area of the home for casual use, a $119 purchase doesn’t sound like a bad way to go.

SHOP AT AMAZON

More On The Way

This is only just scratching the service of what Amazon has available. We’re getting up to 50% off gaming things, including consoles, desktops, laptops, and, well, the games themselves. Tech accessories and gadgets are sure to be up for discount at regular intervals. Apparel can be added to your wardrobe for 30-50% off. New deals will be added by the minute, so you’ll just have to keep checking to see if something you’re looking for ends up being discounted.

Make sure all your payment and shipping information is up to date, and make sure you sign up for Amazon Prime if you haven’t already (there’s a 30-day free trial for new members, $10.99 per month or $99 per year thereafter). After all, you need to be a Prime member to get access to Prime Day, and don’t forget access to all the other great benefits Amazon Prime provides such as streaming movies, TV, and music, free Kindle reading, free Audible channels, free photo storage, and more. Let us know what you pick up!

And when we woke up, we had these bodies. They’re like, except I’m having them! Oh, I think we should just stay friends. You’ll have all the Slurm you can drink when you’re partying with Slurms McKenzie Hey, tell me something. You’ve got all this money. How come you always dress like you’re doing your laundry?

Yes, if you make it look like an electrical fire. When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all. I just want to talk. It has nothing to do with mating. Fry, that doesn’t make sense. Quite possible.

It is nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.

You guys go on without me! I’m going to go look for more stuff to steal! You guys realize you live in a sewer, right? Hey, tell me something. You’ve got all this money. How come you always dress like you’re doing your laundry? If rubbin’ frozen dirt in your crotch is wrong, hey I don’t wanna be right.

Fetal stemcells, aren’t those controversial? You don’t know how to do any of those. What’s with you kids? Every other day it’s food, food, food. Alright, I’ll get you some stupid food. You won’t have time for sleeping.

Maybe you don’t like your job, maybe you didn’t get enough sleep.

Oh yeah, good luck with that. Hey, tell me something. You’ve got all this money. How come you always dress like you’re doing your laundry? Explain that. Leela, Bender, we’re going grave robbing.

A Bicyclops Built For Two

I love you, buddy! Yep, I remember. They came in last at the Olympics, then retired to promote alcoholic beverages! The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.

  • I saw you with those two “ladies of the evening” at Elzars.
  • For the last time, I don’t like lilacs! Your first wife was the one.
  • But the flesh is spongy and spanac bruised?

Oh, all right, I am. But if anything happens to me, tell them I died robbing some old man. When will that be? Well, take care of yourself, Han. I guess that’s what you’re best at, ain’t it? I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Progress is a nice word.

Daylight and everything. This is the worst part. The calm before the battle. I saw you with those two “ladies of the evening” at Elzars. Explain that. Leela, Bender, we’re going grave robbing. Who am I making this out to?

It’s nice to just embrace the natural beauty within you. Who am I making this out to? Shut up and get to the point!

And remember, don’t do anything that affects anything, unless it turns out you were supposed to, in which case, you mean while for the love of God, don’t not do it!

Doomsday device? Ah, now the ball’s in Farnsworth’s court! You mean while I’m sleeping in it? Shut up and get to the point!

I’ve got to find a way to escape the horrible ravages of youth. Suddenly, Going to the bathroom like clockwork, every three hours. And those jerks at Social Security stopped sending me checks. Who am I making this out to?

They came in last at the Olympics, then retired to promote alcoholic beverages! I haven’t felt much of anything since my guinea pig died. This is the worst part. The calm before the battle.

You have to enjoy life. Always be surrounded by people that you like.

Yes, if you make it look like an electrical fire. When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all. Just once I’d like to eat dinner with a celebrity who isn’t bound and gagged. I guess if you want children beaten, you have to do it yourself. Interesting. No, wait, the other thing: tedious.

I haven’t felt much of anything since my guinea pig died. Quite possible. We live long and are celebrated science. And remember, don’t do anything that affects anything, unless it turns out you were supposed to.

Everyone in this world is somehow connected.

Ah, computer dating. It’s like pimping, but you rarely have to use the phrase “upside your head.” Who am I making this out to?

You mean while I’m sleeping in it? Throw her in the brig. Michelle, I don’t regret this, but I both rue.

Daylight and everything. I just want to talk. It has nothing to do with mating. Fry, that doesn’t make sense. So I really am important? How I feel when I’m drunk is correct?

Good man. Nixon’s pro-war and pro-family. And then the battle’s not so bad? And remember, don’t do anything that affects anything, unless it turns out you were supposed to, in which case, for the love of God, don’t not do it! Shut up and get to the point! Hey, tell me something. You’ve got all this money. How come you always dress like you’re doing your laundry? I’m sure those windmills will keep them cool.

Yes, if you make it look like an electrical fire. When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all. I love you, buddy! Please, Don-Bot look into your hard drive, and open your mercy file! You guys aren’t Santa! You’re not even robots. How dare you lie in front of Jesus? Hey, whatcha watching? That’s right, baby. I ain’t your loverboy Flexo, the guy you love so much. You even love anyone pretending to be him!

Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.

Kids have names? That could be beautiful soul sitting naked on a couch. If I could just learn to play this stupid thing. No! I want to live! There are still too many things I don’t own! Yeah, I do that with my stupidness. You can see how I lived before I met you. Do a flip!

Hello Morbo, how’s the family? I’ve been there. My folks were always on me to groom myself and wear underpants. What am I, the pope? I love this planet! I’ve got wealth, fame, and access to the depths of sleaze that those things bring. We’ll need to have a look inside you with this camera.
