Amazon in the Classroom and on the Commute. .

In my classroom this week, we watched Hocus Pocus. The library had a copy, but one of the other classes snatched it up. I figure it would be available on Netflix, but I was wrong. I checked CBS All Access and Hulu. No dice. Amazon has it, as does Google Play. I went with Amazon because I had some coupons which reduced the price by $2.00. Otherwise, Google and Amazon would have had the same price.

The $.299 price is listed in the ad is for a rental. I've only rented a digital product once. It doesn't seem worth the cost but it is quick and easy. Live and learn.




What I find amazing is that the DVD ranges from $4.99 to $24.99. Who pays $24.99 for a DVD? The Blu Ray is less than $18.00.


Since I was already there, I loaded some music to my phone for the ride home. Twenty One Pilot's Levitate is catchy. The album is less than 11 bucks.



So much for saving money.

Fire 7"

Oh, did the family score this Christmas. We each picked up a Fire, 7" Tablet.

These little devices work with almost any computer. I tried it on a Windows 7 and a Chromebook and both worked well. I was able to make some magic and install Google Play and Google Drive without too much trouble.

Here we have DoubleTwist from the Google Play Store displaying Matt and Kim from Amazon Music.

Between the native Amazon app and the Play Store, I have the best mix of software available on Tabbies today. Below you can see my new favorite NewsHog, available from the Amazon store. It beast the heck out of Google News.


In the coming days, I am sure I will be adding more great software. I can't wait to sink my teeth into this thing.
