The e-commerce major Amazon has started selling its own Covid-19 test kit to customers directly. The results of the test will appear on Amazon diagnostics website which was initially created for Amazon employees. The test kit is available on sale for $39.99 and has one-day shipping through Prime in some of the areas in the US. In order to use the test, a patient has to swab their own nose at home and then place it in a box with a prepaid preturning label. The swabs are then sent to a centralised lab. The Covid-19 test kit of Amazon received the FDA approval in March this year. At that time, the company planned to use the test kit for its onsite employees. Apart from its own test kit, Amazon is offering a Covid-19 test kit made by genomics company DxTerity and a rapid 10-minute testing kit made by Quidel on its portal.

Having recently secured $36 million in seed funding, Rainforest is looking to acquire more Amazon third-party sellers as well as fast-growing brands that sell on Asian e-commerce platforms. And it is hoping to differentiate itself by offering tools to help these sellers centrally manage their transactions across the different marketplaces. Since kicking off its operations in January 2021, the Singapore-based e-commerce aggregator had acquired three brands that sold through Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA). These included a Singapore-owned brand that sold bedding products on the US e-commerce marketplace. Founded in 2020, Rainforest last month raised $6.5 million in equity financing and $30 million debt facility from a US debt fund. It said it would use the funds to acquire more Amazon FBA brands, bring in new hires, and develop its technology stack. Noting that Amazon's third-party gross merchandise value topped $300 billion last year, up 50% from 2019, Rainforest CEO J.J. Chai said … [Read more...] about Singapore e-commerce aggregator eyes interoperability across APAC marketplaces
The Xbox and Bethesda Showcase was the watershed moment Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S owners have been patiently waiting for. In a 90 minute conference, stuffed full of new and genuinely exciting announcements, Microsoft not only answered the fiercest criticism leveled at its new hardware – a lack of games – but also showed that its billion dollar investments in Bethesda and countless other studios is about to pay off in a big way. And that’s a relief, as Xbox owners will have undoubtedly cast more than a few envious glances over to Sony’s PS5 , which has delivered next-gen games from day one. While Microsoft has been content to pad out the first six months of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S’ lifespan with optimized titles, Sony has at least released genuine PS5 games , such as the breath-taking Ratchet and Clank: A Rift Apart and addictive roguelike Returnal . And it has more to come. Nintendo Switch owners were also utterly spoiled within the console’s first … [Read more...] about Xbox Series X’s biggest problem has finally been addressed at E3 2021
There's a reason why the Apple Watch ( $199 at Best Buy ) continues to dominate smartwatch sales. It can do almost as much as your smartphone, it's one of the best fitness trackers out there and it even keeps your vitals in check. I've spent a lot of time wearing the latest Series 6 ($399), the $279 SE and $199 Series 3 . I also over-research every purchase in my life. So trust me when I tell you there's no bad choice when it comes to buying an Apple Watch. (See the chart below for a full specs breakdown, including international prices.)

Apple Watch Series 3: The most affordable option with a few trade-offs If you're still unsure about making the leap from analogue wrist … [Read more...] about Apple Watch SE vs Series 6 vs. Series 3: How to choose?
E3 2021 is almost over, and we have yet to see a major retailer have a restock aside from Walmart's on Monday in the early morning. PS5 restock tracker Jake Randall had some hopeful news Tuesday saying he's heard of a restock happening soon at Target. Local stores have reportedly received more Sony consoles the past week and could be selling them this week or even next week. We're also waiting to see if Amazon will have any more PS5s when Prime Day starts on June 21. Target and Walmart have also announced competing sales events, so we could see possible restocks from them. Check back often for the latest PS5 restock information, and read on for advice. Why is it tough to find a PlayStation 5? Sony's newest console is still hard to find seven months after its launch. Contributing to the difficulty is the fact that scalpers are using bots -- and the global chip shortage continues. Sony says it's aware of the problem and is figuring out a solution.
