If you missed out on all the great Kindle Paperwhite deals we saw in July during the first Prime Day, you still have a chance to save. We’re quickly approaching the end of Amazon’s first Prime Early Access Sale, however, the retailer is still selling the latest ad-supported Kindle Paperwhite with 8GB of storage for $99.99 instead of $139.99 — the same goes for Target and Best Buy. If you prefer to read without distracting ads getting in the way, you can also buy the ad-free version at Amazon for $119.99 ($40 off).

The latest Kindle Paperwhite is a terrific e-reader, one with a battery that can literally last months, so you will not need to worry about recharging it. It also offers IPX8 waterproofing so you can enjoy reading by the pool, and it comes with USB-C support for faster charging. Plus, its 6.8-inch display is larger than its predecessor’s, so you’ll be able to read books more easily, especially at night, given it supports adjustable color temperatures. For more about the Kindle Paperwhite and our take on it, be sure to check out our review.

If you can do without USB-C support, there are also discounts still available on the Kindle Oasis. Unlike the Paperwhite, this great e-reader comes with page-turning buttons and also supports adjustable color temperatures. It’s currently on sale at Amazon and Best Buy with ads and 8GB of storage for $179.99 ($70 off), or without ads at Amazon for $199.99 ($70 off). Read our review.

Update October 12th, 6:14PM: Checked availability, updated pricing details, and added links to additional Prime Early Access Sale coverage.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s
