Buy The Echo Auto For $20, Get 6 Months Of Amazon Music Unlimited Free

Amazon is bundling the Echo Auto with six months of Amazon Music Unlimited for Prime Members in this early Prime Day deal.

You are saving $20 on the Echo Auto (so it’s only $19.99) and then you are getting six months of Amazon Music Unlimited for free. Making it a really great deal, especially for those that want to stream music on the Echo Auto.

So what exactly is the Echo Auto? Basically, it’s an Echo smart speaker for your car. While it’s not actually a speaker, because it connects to your car’s stereo, it does act as one. So this is a quick and easy way to bring Alexa into your vehicle. Which is a very big deal.

There are eight microphones included in the Echo Auto, with far-field technology, so you can easily talk to Alexa. Alexa is able to control your lights with your voice while you’re

Talking free agency and nine years on the Red Sox with Jackie Bradley Jr.: ‘It’s just a special, special achievement’

“Let’s sit outside.”

Despite gray skies and potential rain, Bradley had a lot to soak in just a day after his season ended. He sat down with the Globe and traced how he’s gotten to this point and discussed his free agency ahead.

The Red Sox are all Bradley’s ever known. It was the organization that drafted him in the first round out of the University of South Carolina in 2011, that saw him steamroll through the minors, set spring training on fire in ’13, and earn an Opening Day roster spot only to see him fall flat. It was the team that saw him struggle, then succeed, then struggle some more. Then succeed some more. Then struggle again.

Nine years later, Bradley is entering free agency. It’s a moment that, depending upon who you ask, many suspected he wouldn’t reach, at least with the Red Sox. This was a

The high privacy cost of a ‘free’ website

Kara Zajac said SPART*A, a small nonprofit serving transgender military service members and veterans, helped her begin her transition while in the Navy. To give back, she volunteered to build the group’s website in her spare time after leaving the military—and kept her eye on a key value: privacy.

“I don’t track users,” Zajac said. “Not everyone in the military is wanting to be known for being trans. They might not be out yet. So any time we can protect privacy in that way, we try to do it.”

She said she only allowed three trackers on cookies from Twitter and Facebook that accompany their “like” buttons on the site, and one from Disqus, a commenting platform she got through a prepackaged website theme she bought off the internet for $59 to build the site.

But when The Markup scanned using our new instant privacy inspector, Blacklight, we

Shenandoah Automotive Free Oil Change Day for breast cancer survivor and fighters.

Owner, Steven Faught, says he was inspired to give back when a friend of his was diagnosed with breast cancer, so he started the day-long event offering the free services, that otherwise might get forgotten while battling cancer.

“It just seemed like one of those maintenance things that always needed to get done but always seemed to get pushed to the bottom of the list as they’re having to go to doctor appointments and treatments and that kind of thing, so it’s just something we can take off of their plate for them,” Faught said.

This year, along with the car services and raffles that benefit the
