The tiny box that gives you free home phone service for life is Amazon’s deal of the day

How To Get Free Home Phone Service

Since pretty much everyone over the age of 12 has a smartphone these days, home phone service has become less and less important. In fact, many people only have home phone service because it gets them a discount on pay TV and internet. If you really think about it though, it is pretty nice to have an option with high-quality voice service that doesn't have any dead spots. VoIP over a broadband connection will always sound better than cellular voice, after all.

Well, today is your lucky day because we're going to tell you how to get free home phone service for life so that you don't have to argue with your cable company every year when they try to hike the price of your service. The Ooma Telo gets you crystal-clear nationwide calling for free, for life. And it just so happens to be today's deal of the day on Amazon, so the cost of entry is even cheaper than it normally is. Don't worry, you can thank us later.

Here are some key details from the product page:

  • Crystal-clear nationwide calling for free and low international rates. Pay only monthly applicable taxes and fees.

Japan’s nuclear disaster gave everyone on Earth extra radiation

fukushima nuclear exposure

It's been over half a decade since Japan's Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant suffered a catastrophic meltdown due to the effects of a tsunami which struck the island nation, but scientists are only just now confirming its far-reaching effects. After conducting the first worldwide survey to measure the ultimate radiation exposure caused by the reactor meltdown, researchers at the Norwegian Institute for Air Research finally have a figure on exactly how much extra radiation humanity was exposed to.

Amazon just discounted the Echo for the first time in 2017

Amazon Echo Discount

Earlier this week, we told you about a big sale Amazon is running on refurbished Echo speakers. $134.99 is a fantastic price for a certified refurbished (and warrantied) Amazon Echo, but some people prefer to stick to brand new devices. There's no problem with that, of course, and we have some great news for you. With Mother's Day right around the corner, Amazon just slashed the price of its brand new Amazon Echo speaker for the first time this year.

From now through the end of the day on May 13, Amazon is chopping $30 off the price of a new Amazon Echo speaker in either black or white. That drops the price of the top-of-the-line Amazon Echo down to $149.99, which is just $20 more than the mid-range Amazon Tap. It's a killer deal, but it won't last so definitely grab one while you can.

Here are some key details from the Echo product page:

  • Plays all your music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more using just your voice
  • Fills the room with immersive, 360º omni-directional audio
  • Allows hands-free convenience with voice-control
  • Hears you from across the room with far-field voice recognition, even while music is playing
  • Answers questions, reads the news, reports traffic and weather, reads audiobooks from Audible, gives info on local businesses, provides sports scores and schedules, and more using the Alexa Voice Service
  • Controls lights, fans, switches, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, locks, and more with compatible connected devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, ecobee, and others
  • Always getting smarter and adding new features, plus thousands of skills like Uber, Domino's, and more
