For MicroSD and SD cards, "U3" means it supports fast write speeds capable of recording 4K video and fast-saving of high quality photos.
In our opinion, get a "U3" card if you plan to use with a camera that can either record 4K or take rapid amount of photos.
If you plan to use in a computer or mobile device, a "U1" card should work just as well as a "U3" card.

- Smart Sticky Note Printer for $90 Pre-Order
Later this year, Amazon will develop and ship a Smart Sticky Note printer.
Speak your reminders onto your compatible Alexa/Echo device, and it will print a sticky note for you.
It must be paired with an Amazon Echo device (sold separately) that is generation 2 or newer.
It will not be compatible with 1st generation Echo and Echo Dot.
Comes with 1 yellow sticky paper roll.
Refills will be available for purchase, and will be available in blue, pink, white, and yellow.
Also, the paper seems like it would be "thermal", meaning the printer would not require ink but the paper would feel cheap.
Will be 4.7" x 4.7" x 3.2" in size, about the same as a toilet paper roll.
So it will be small, but not tiny.
You won't get it until July to September of this year.
$90 price is valid for pre-orders placed by March 19.
Prices rises after then.
In our opinion, if you rely on Alexa for your scheduling assistant, this will add the benefit of note-taking.
However, if Alexa is not your go-to device, this purchase may not be worth the $90.
It may not compatible with PC and Mac, and would service limited functions.

- Blue Yeti USB Microphone for $119
The Blue Yeti microphone has been a hot item since Covid began 1 year ago, and is still rarely ever discounted from its $130 price.
Target had listed it for $117 around Black Friday, and there have not been any deas since.
Even stores like Best Buy and Staples exclude their coupons from discounting this quality microphone.
Today, Amazon is selling the Blue Yeti for $118.27, black color only.
It plugs into the USB port of a computer, and provides some of the best quality audio for consumers, without buying musician-grade gear.
We use our Blue Yeti for audio recordings, Zoom meetings, Google Meet video calls with family, and making YouTube videos.
For best quality, use the knob on its back to adjust the usage pattern modes knob.
While in Cardoid Mode, it can pick-up audio coming from your direction without picking up echo from your speakers.
Can be controlled by an Alexa and Google Assistant smart speakers
The more expensive Ultra has a faster processor, which means launching apps, starting streaming videos, and navigating menus will be quicker.
It also has an Ethernet port for a faster and more reliable connection than Wifi.
Roku apps had been slow to update compared to Android TV, but that has changed.
With the recent release of the HBOMax app on Roku and others, Roku is now our pick for having the most streaming apps available.
Plus, if someone has an iPad or iPhone, the AirPlay feature gives more control over their Roku.
Cast is also available, to play videos from Android phones, Chromebooks, and laptops with the Chrome browser.
These Roku devices are the only non-Apple players that have the Apple TV+ app, so people who got a 1-year Apple TV+ subscription free with their purchase of an iPhone can watch Apple TV+ on their TV.

Curbside Pickup at Whole Foods Market for Amazon Prime Subscribers:
If you pay for an Amazon Prime subscription, Whole Foods curbside pickup service is one of the best grocery services available.
Better than Instacart.
First, let's mention grocery delivery and why we do not recommend it:
Whole Foods delivery drivers make as many as 10 stops before reaching your home, so your ice cream and other frozen food may begin to melt by the time it arrives.
Drivers can drop off groceries and leave, without knocking on your front door.
Groceries may sit at your doorstep or garage door without you knowing.
Delivery windows are 2+ hours, making it hard to schedule your day with no way to predict precisely the time it will arrive.
If you are busy when the delivery arrives, fresh food can spoil if left outside for a while.
Drivers have, at times, delivered to the wrong address.
Amazon does refund when this happens, but can be frustrating to not get groceries when you expect to.
Below are our tips for grocery shopping for Prime members.
Shop Whole Foods on Amazon and choose store pickup.
Use a computer or tablet to shop, as their Amazon app currently does a poor job at Whole Foods shopping on a phone.
If you have ever shopped in-store and scanned your Prime code at the register, you can see your past purchases making it easy to re-order things that you like.
Add at least $35 to get free store pickup (free with Prime).
All prices, including sale items, are the same as if you shopped in the store as a Prime member.
Compared to Instacart's surcharge of 20% at Costco and 10% at other stores, shopping at Whole Foods can be cheaper than other online grocery shopping.
Deli items are available, but many prepared/cooked foods may not be.
Whole Foods does not carry many popular sugary and snack brands.
Many of their snacks are organic, and cost more than Oreos and Dorrito's.
That being said, many snack products are available from Amazon with free Prime delivery.
Fresh produce are available, but many nut products are not.
Popular nut brands are available from Amazon with free Prime delivery.
During checkout, choose item substitution options (or no substitutions on all items), and pick an available pickup time window.
You can add items after placing your order, up until their in-store shopper begins working on your order.
They keep your items refrigerated and frozen, so they remain fresh until you pick it up.
You will receive a text message or email saying your order is ready for pickup.
From your mobile device, click the link within that message to open the Amazon app, choose "Curbside" and click the button to let them know you are on your way.
If you do not have the Amazon app on your mobile device, download it so the store can track your vehicle en route to the store.
Make sure the Amazon app has location privileges enabled on your phone's settings.
Their employees, tracking your vehicle on its way, will bring your groceries outside at the moment you arrive.
Park in a designated "pickup" space, and their employees will load the groceries in your car.
If you did not enable location services, select the "pickup" parking space number where you are parked, and the store will bring your groceries to you.
With Covid-19's spread at its peak in nearly every corner of the U.S., curbside pickup is a great way to get fresh groceries and avoid risks of getting Covid or spreading it to others.
Some local grocery stores have their own curbside pickup options, which probably will have better prices than Whole Foods.
Plus, shopping at locally-owned businesses helps support them at times when many are struggling.
However, be aware that local grocery stores that use Instacart for their online shopping may charge Instacart's hidden per-item surcharges of 10% or 20% (rate varies by store).
So, unfortunately, customers using Instacart's service will probably spend more than a Prime member shopping at Whole Foods.
Not all Whole Foods locations have curbside pickup available, but the locations that do have made shopping quick and easy, without having to wear a mask, get out of your car, or wait in a parking lot.

- Honeywell Wifi Smart Thermostat $74
Honeywell Home T5 Smart Thermostat for $74.
Normally sells for $90.
Replacing your home thermostat with this (or other wifi thermostat) lets you control the temperature from your smart phone, Google Assistant, or from Amazon Alexa.
- 3-Pack Kasa Smart Light Switches for $37
Kasa Smart HS200P3 3-Pack of Wifi Light Switches for $37 ($12.33 each).
Normally sells for about $50.
Wifi light switches like these can control your lights through an app and with a smart speaker (Alexa and Google Home) individually or as a group, like saying "turn off all lights."
These are regular on/off switches without dimming.
The switches are "single pole" only, so they cannot be used in a 3-way configuration where two switches would control one set of lights.
Requires a skilled electrician to install these, as it can be dangerous touching live electrical wires in the wall.
- 2-Pack Blue Light Blocking Glasses for $7.50
2-pack of blue light blocking glasses for $7.50.
People wear these when staring at a computer screen, phone, or tablet for long period of time to reduce eyestrain.
We also heard of people who slept better through the night, by putting on blue light blocking glasses for an hour before going to bed.
