A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie - Hoodie SZN Music Album Reviews

Despite the typical bloated-album problems like pacing issues and forced collaborations, A Boogie hardly ever loses his Bronx edge.
In New York, time moves at its own pace: Facebook is still the social media of choice, CDs are still handed out on the street, and radio DJs still have the power to break a song. Likewise, the 23-year-old Bronx rapper A Boogie Wit da Hoodie feels like he belongs in a long-gone era. When A Boogie drops in one of his petty, lovestruck tracks on his latest album Hoodie SZN, the quotables could double as a teen in 2008’s AIM away message sent from a T-Mobile Sidekick; when he gets violent, he makes me think that the melodic and stick-talking Tim Vocals has been spiritually resurrected. But it’s all part of what has made A Boogie one of New York’s most essential—and most popular—artists. Because despite Hoodie SZN’s 20 songs facing the typical bloated-album problems like pacing issues and forced collaborations, through it all, A Boogie hardly ever loses his Bro…

Amazon Declares Prime Day 2016 to Be a Big Success

During Prime Day 2016, the Fire TV Stick was the best-selling Amazon device worldwide. Photo: Amazon.

Did you get a Prime Day deal? If so, you're not alone. We know a lot of you were buying up TVs, headphones, and other electronic items. However, Amazon is also out there, proclaiming that yesterday's online event was the company's "biggest day ever."

More specifically, the company has said that the second coming of Prime Day was the biggest sales day in Amazon history. In fact, the company sold 50 percent more to U.S. shoppers over last year's Prime Day. (And 60 percent worldwide.) It was also the biggest day for Amazon-branded devices, including the Fire TV and Alexa-enabled devices.

Amazon didn't talk dollars or say how many people signed up for the Prime service during the event. However, they were throwing around plenty of other numbers, including the following:
  • More than 90,000 TVs were purchased worldwide on Prime Day 2016.
  • It was the biggest day ever for Amazon Echo in the U.S.; up over 2.5x compared to previous record day.
  • U.S. shoppers purchased over 200,000 headphones.
  • The top three Prime Day deal titles purchased or rented in the U.S. were Deadpool, Kung Fu Panda 3, and 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.
  • Amazon devices were up over 3x in the U.S., compared to Prime Day last year.
  • The Fire TV Stick was Amazon's best-selling device globally.
  • On average, U.S. shoppers purchased one Alexa-exclusive deal per second during Prime Day using their voice.
"Prime itself is the best deal in the history of shopping, and Prime Day was created as a special benefit exclusively for our Prime members," said Greg Greeley, vice president of Amazon Prime. "We want to thank our tens of millions of members around the world for making this the biggest day in the history of Amazon. We hope you had as much fun as we did. After yesterday's results, we'll definitely be doing this again."

Amazon also says that plenty of small businesses benefitted from Prime Day. Many sellers offered deals to Prime members, which resulted in orders nearly triple year-over-year on Prime Day.

In addition to Prime Day benefits, Amazon Prime subscribers in the U.S. receive unlimited free 2-day shipping on over 30 million items every day, as well as same-day delivery on select items. Of course, Prime also includes access to tens of thousands of movies and TV shows through Prime Video, as well as Prime Music, Prime Photos, Kindle First, and other perks.


Amazon Prime offers a free 30-day trial for new members. After that, you can expect to pay $99 per year. The company also offers separate Prime Video and Prime monthly plans.

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Apple iPad Pro 2018 vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6
