Staff Favorite

Amazon's first-party cases are well-made and well-priced. They feature a slim fabric cover that can fold over into a stand to hold up your tablet in portrait or landscape mode. The cover can also wake the device with its magnetic closures, and the microfiber interior protects your Fire's screen from scratches. Versions of this case are also available for the Fire 7, HD 7, HD8, and previous HD 10 models, and all are offered in multiple colors.

Put a case on it — kids edition

Kid-Proof Case for Fire 7 Tablet

Yes, we know that you can get a Kids Edition Fire Tablet in the 7", 8", or 10" varieties — but what if you don't need or want a second Fire Tablet but still want to kid-proof your device? There are plenty of great options from third-party vendors, but we are partial to this one from Amazon. It's perfect for taking any beating your little one can dish out and is convenient to remove for when the adults want their tablet back. Versions of this case are also available for the Fire HD 8 and HD 10 as well. The case comes in five fun colors: black, blue, pink, punch red, and purple.

Protect that screen

NuPro Clear Screen Protector

There's nothing more annoying than watching a movie with lots of shadows and dark scenes on your tablet and then seeing the glare coming off of a giant scratch in the screen - yuck! With a screen protector like this, you won't have to deal with headaches like that. Screen protectors protect against scratches, smudges, and dirt and are easy to install — a no-brainer to protect your tablet investment.

Add more storage

SanDisk Ultra Micro SD Card

While Amazon Fire tablets are a fantastic value, they achieve low prices by skimping a bit on storage. However, they are one of the few tablets that allow you to add your own third-party storage in the form of a microSD card. With most of the current Fire tablets starting at 16 GB of internal storage, you can easily double, triple, or even add up to eight times as much storage with one of these SanDisk Micro SD cards. That's perfect for loading up your tablet with movies and music for a long trip.

It comes with a five-foot micro-USB to USB charging cable and easy twist-off adapters for use in North America, the UK, Continental Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and China. The adapters will also automatically adjust voltage and frequency, so your Fire doesn't end up... well, on fire.

Three in one

Wireless Charging Dock

This accessory serves multiple purposes. It not only acts as a charging dock and display stand, but it also removes the need for a separate device like an alarm clock, Echo Spot, or Echo Show. It essentially turns your Fire HD 8 Plus into an Echo Show, while allowing you to remove the device to use in tablet mode whenever you wish. As a result, it's an incredibly convenient accessory to consider.

Easy smart device

Amazon Smart Plug

The Amazon Smart Plug is a great way to ease into the smart home lifestyle, and it automatically works with any Alexa-enabled device like your Fire tablet. Simply plug one of these into a wall socket and ask Alexa to discover devices. Once Alexa finds the plug, you can name it, add it to a routine, or ask Alexa to "turn on the lamp" you plugged into it.

Accessorizing — what separates us from the animals

Amazon Fire tablets are inexpensive, durable, and incredibly useful personal technology devices, and they're also some of the cheapest Android tablets that you can buy. Coming in various sizes, colors, and capacities, and with built-in and hands-free Alexa access, they delight their users through entertainment and convenience.

Once you've set up your Fire tablet, you have virtually unlimited access to movies, TV shows, apps, music, books, and all the online shopping Amazon can throw at you. You also have access to great content from Hulu, Netflix, HBO, and even Apple (Music)! And if you have kids, these are still the only tablets we'd recommend.

Our top accessory recommendation for Fire tablets is the Amazon Fire Tablet Cover. Not only do they look great, but they do a great job of providing protection and utility for your Fire tablet. Nevertheless, there is no shortage of accessories for whichever Fire tablet you choose. For example, the colorful Kid-Proof Case for Fire 7 Tablets is great because it will protect your precious tablet from the inevitable drops and bumps brought on by the little ones. The Blink Mini camera, on the other hand, is a futuristic and affordable way to protect your home, which you can check on at any time through your Fire tablet.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
