There’s some phone news, a farewell to an old-school internet service, and a reminder that some of the best Prime Day deals are for Amazon’s somewhat-hackable Fire tablets.

But first, a public service announcement.

If you live in the United States, you have until October 15 to fill out the 2020 Census. That date has been a bit of a moving target due to a legal battle, but as things stand right now, the Census Bureau has announced it will stop its count at 11:59 PM Huawaii Standard Time on October 15 (which is 5:59AM EST or 2:59 AM EST October 16, 2020)

Among other things, the results of the Census has determine how much federal funding is available in the community where you live and how many seats in Congress should be allocated to your state.

If you haven’t already filled out the Census, you can still do so by calling 844-330-2020 or visiting to complete the questionnaire online.

Now on with the tech news.

  1. While I agree with the substance of the PSA and I do not share Chicom’s cynicism, I understand where he is coming from. I come to liliputing for Brad’s awesome coverage of compact computing news. It is this tech geek’s oasis from the frenzy of other types of news, especially during this crazy year. I love this blog for what it is. Please, please, please keep it that way!

  2. lol, next month Brad will be telling us who to vote for. So glad I block your ads.

    Your wise lady (the courts only partisan radical) lost 7-1, that’s really bad.

    1. You somehow think that Brad is being excessively political by suggesting in very neutral terms that people do something that is expressly required by the Constitution?
