The Already Amazing ‘Amazfit Verge’ Will Now Include Amazon ‘Alexa’ Integration.

by Anura Guruge




The ‘Amazfit Verge‘, as I raved about a few months ago, has to be THE VERY BEST sub-$200 smartwatch. I thoroughly enjoyed having it on my wrist and going running with it.

Now Alexa integration. Wow. Keeps on getting better.

It is very popular outside of the USA.

I am hoping that it will catch on in the US.

Check it out.

‘Garmin MARQ’ Smartwatches: Availability Is Now Supposedly 2 – 3 Weeks (From The 3 – 5 Weeks).

3.5 weeks after they were announced Garmin finally got around the updating the availability to say ‘2 – 3 weeks’. I guess that is par for the course for Garmin. But, still nothing on Amazon.

If the Vivoactive 3 roll-out was any indication things could start to rapidly change from this point onwards. So, I guess we are looking at the first week in May.

I am still hoping to get my hands on the ‘Expedition’ model.

Sunday Deliveries By Amazon — WHY? Didn’t Ask For It. Just Straight Prime 2-Day.

by Anura Guruge



For the second Sunday in a row we had an Amazon delivery via USPS.

Strange.

Never asked for Sunday, or even 1-day delivery.

Just ordered them ‘2-day’ Prime — given I am a Prime Member of longstanding.

Kind of funny. Shortly after I placed the orders it showed SUNDAY delivery. So, they are planning for it.

I am sure the USPS is not complaining. Spoke to the delivery person today. He seemed quite happy. He is getting paid.

But, why?

Doesn’t make sense.

And as a AMZN shareholder (also of longstanding) this bothers me, though, OF COURSE, I cannot complain about the ROI I have got from AMZN. Smile.

Garmin Forerunner 735XT On Sale At ‘Amazon UK’ At A 43% Discount.

by Anura Guruge

I read about this on Google News this morning.

I checked Amazon U.S. Normal pricing. I also checked Garmin. No discount.

But, sure enough, it is deeply discounted on Amazon U.K.

I have heard rumors that there is a NEW Forerunner in the wings and Amazon U.K. may have jumped the gun.

It could be a mistake. It might not last.

But, if you are in the U.K. and want a good, mid-range Garmin you might want to check this — FAST.

‘Garmin MARQ’ Smartwatches: 3-Weeks After Announcements Still No Signs Of Availability.

There might be nothing awry or amiss, but I find it a tad incongruous. 3-weeks ago when it was announced, Garmin, as is fairly typical for them, said “availability within 3-5 weeks”. OK, so we have now had 3-weeks. Shouldn’t this now say: “availability within 2-3 weeks”?

That there is NOTHING on Amazon is even more curious. Typically they would have pre-orders by now. I remember that from when I was waiting for a Garmin Vivoactive 3.

Maybe this will all change this week. Just a heads-up. I was curious and I do plan to get my hands on one — the Expedition.

That Jeff Bezos Is Relying On Psychics To Tell Him Of The Future, Does NOT Bode Well For Amazon’s Future.

BET the psychics didn’t tell him his phone was BUGGED!

This is getting worrying. Jeff Bezos, the once MIGHTY VISIONARY now paying psychics!

This whole affair thing and the Dick Pictures had me concerned. Now I am real worried.

I have fairly decent financial stake in Amazon. Jeff Bezos has done me proud. But, I don’t want him blowing my gains.

He has to know better than to be consulting psychics.

This is not good. I assume that the Amazon Board and other executives are beginning to feel on edge.

Has all the pressure over the last 30-years been too much? Finally catching up on Jeff.

Well, at least I warned you.

Don McLean Of ‘American Pie’ Says He Gets By With Just 2 Stocks — Can You Guess What They Are?

This article is not as precise as I would have hoped and I am not sure how up to-date it is. As you can see above, he was in major trouble with an ex-wife in 2016 & 2017. Not sure whether that was wife #1 or #2.

Did not know that he has a degree in finance, from Iowa College, from 1968. That is impressive. Just assumed that he had pursued a career in music all his adult life.

So, did you guess the two stocks?

AMZN (Amazon) & GOOG (Google, now Alphabet).

Yep. No doubt great stock. Yes, I own them too, but I am sure that I have no owned them for as long as he has or I have 1/1,000,000 the stake he has in them.

But, here is where I have a problem.

AMZN IPO was in 1997; Google’s in 2004.

Don McLean made the bulk of his money in the 1970s. AMZN and GOOG did not even exist then. We didn’t even have the InterWeb.

Does this mean he never owned any stock prior to AMZN & GOOG.

I somehow doubt that.

But, interesting. You can’t go from with these two stocks — especially after you have owned them for a few years.

So, he has done good.

I wish him luck. I hope his troubles are behind him. I like him a lot. ‘American Pie‘ is one of my all time favorites.
