Amazon's Echo Show 15 is now available to pre-order for $250

The Echo Show 15 can even be used as a photo frame to display your albums from Facebook or Amazon Photos.

What you need to know

  • Consumers in the U.S. can now pre-order the Amazon Echo Show 15.
  • The smart display comes with a 15.6-inch screen and brings all-new Alexa experiences.
  • It is priced at $250.

Back in September, Amazon expanded its smart display lineup with the launch of the Echo Show 15. The Echo Show 15 is the largest smart display that the retail giant has announced so far, with a 15.6-inch Full HD display. Nearly two months after its official unveiling, the smart display is now finally available to pre-order in the U.S. It is slated to begin shipping on December 9.

Unlike previous smart displays from Amazon, the Echo Show 15 has a flat design and can be mounted on a wall or placed on a counter in portrait or landscape orientation. As you can tell, the device looks a lot more like a photo frame than a smart display.

The Echo Show 15 also brings a redesigned home screen and Alexa widgets, making it easier for you to view your shared family calendar, track your incoming packages, find new recipes, manage to-do lists, and more. You can also stream your favorite shows and movies from services such as Prime Video, Netflix, and Hulu.

While half of the Echo Show 15's screen is used to display the ambient rotating content, the other half is dedicated to customizable Alexa widgets. The Alexa widgets refresh continuously, ensuring that you always have access to the latest information. You can easily rearrange the widgets to suit your preferences.

Another feature that sets it apart from the best smart displays is visual ID, which basically lets you customize your Alexa experience. Once you enroll in visual ID, Alexa will recognize you when you walk in front of the smart display and show you a custom greeting, personal reminders, calendar events, recently played music, or personal notes others may have left for you.

These days, though, the best Chromebooks offer excellent performance and less maintenance at lower price points.

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

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Playing games on your smartphone is one of the best ways to entertain yourself. However, it can be tough to play with some games when you're just tapping on a screen. Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones .

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
