If I were to venture a guess, the desire to read more books is right up there with getting fit, saving money, and eating healthier when it comes to the most common New Year’s resolutions. Fortunately, if you are hoping to up your literary ambitions in 2024, the Kindle Scribe is on sale at Amazon for Prime members with 16GB of storage and a Basic Pen starting at $269.99 ($70 off). You can also pick up the e-reader in the same storage configuration with a Premium Pen, which features a shortcut button and a built-in eraser, starting at $294.99 ($75 off).

When we reviewed Amazon’s 10.2-inch e-reader upon its release, the big-screen slate was somewhat lacking in both the features and software departments. Note-taking rivals like the Kobo Elipsa 2E and Remarkable 2 were simply more capable (and intuitive), though Amazon has steadily unleashed a series of iterative updates over the past year or so to make it more competitive. You can now convert handwriting into typed text and write on pages, for instance, and the Kindle Scribe now offers far more organizational tools to help you sift through and share content. The big selling points remain the ebook reader’s battery life — which is great for an e-reader this big — and its bundled stylus, which lets you take digital notes and doodle whenever you’d like.

Apple’s next set of AirPods may be on the horizon, but if recent leaks are to be believed, we’re not likely to see a new pair of the AirPods Pro until at least 2025. Fortunately, the second-gen AirPods Pro with USB-C are on sale at Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy right now starting at $189 ($60 off), matching their best price to date.

Ever since the debut of the original AirPods Pro in 2019, Apple’s noise-canceling earbuds have been the go-to pick for many iPhone users. The second-gen model offers swipe-based controls, more refined sound, and superior noise cancellation when compared to Apple’s first-gen buds, while retaining ecosystem tricks like support for head-tracking spatial audio, Find My integration, and audio sharing. The newest iteration, which launched in September, added dust resistance and a USB-C charging case to the equation.

They’re a pretty subtle upgrade overall, but even I — someone who has enough charging cables to fill a laundry basket — can’t deny the appeal of being able to charge my phone and earbuds with a single cable. I just wish Apple had done it sooner.
