Happy Monday! Welcome back to work. Hopefully your mornings are going as good as possible, and can now take a break from your morning routine with a little shopping.
Father’s Day is officially six days away on June 19th. Don’t procrastinate much longer if you are getting your father a gift.
Amazon has extended the massive sale on its tablets and Tap speaker into today so make sure you take a look. You’d be hard pressed to find better media consumption devices at such low prices.
