Amazon just unveiled yet another device in its Echo range, as the Echo Spot hit virtual shelves not that long ago. What’s new and exciting? Not a whole lot, but it does offer Alexa capabilities in a small package that also boasts a screen and mic, meaning you can use it for video calls. Other than that, it’s another possibility should you be considering adding an Alexa-equipped device to your pad. The compact build and shape makes it a nice nightstand companion, so maybe stop using your phone as your alarm and allow Echo Spot to handle waking you. Then you can fire off questions as it wakes you up—What’s the weather? Is there traffic?—and then some more when you’re drifting off. If someone you know is in the market for an Echo device, the Echo Spot is one of the sharpest yet.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
