Last year, Amazon released Echo, a really, really awesome voice-controlled entertainment hub that was ignored by far too many people. Now, Amazon is expanding the Alexa line with Tap, a voice-controlled Bluetooth speaker designed for a bit more portability. All you need to do is tap the microphone button on the speaker and say your request—anything from a specific song you want to hear to a pizza order you want to place. You can listen to music from Prime Music (obviously), Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn, and Tap can stream the music from your Bluetooth-connected phone or device. Powered by Dolby, the dual stereo speakers spit out 360° sound, and the device itself offers 9 hours of playback. Whereas Echo was meant more to sit on a shelf in your living room, Tap is designed to be attached to a backpack, thrown in a bag, or carried around for use. Just like with Echo, we’re fans.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
