Hydration is key. That's why I always make sure I have a water bottle on me. This one from Brita is the best affordable water bottle we've ever tested because it has an in-bottle filter to remove flavors and odors in the water and it has a soft squeeze, making it easy to drink from while walking or hiking. Right now, it's at one of its lowest pricing, so it's a good option to throw in a backpack or work bag.
Whether you want to explore the smart home world, want to cut the cord with your cable company, need more convenient ways to keep your devices charged, or want to start cooking healthier meals at home, you'll love today's top Amazon deals on products that are worth buying. We scour Amazon for sales on items that we have tested and know are worth buying, as saving 25% on a good product that will last is a heck of a lot better than saving 50% on something that doesn't work very well or breaks after a few uses. Without further ado, here are the top five finds of the day:
In March 2015, it was reported in The Verge that Amazon will be removing non-compete clauses of 18 months in length from its US employment contracts for hourly-paid workers, after criticism that it was acting unreasonably in preventing such employees from finding other work. Even short-term temporary workers have to sign contracts that prohibit them from working at any company where they would "directly or indirectly" support any good or service that competes with those they helped support at Amazon, for 18 months after leaving Amazon, even if they are fired or made redundant.
A price comparison app or website allows you to compare prices for products. The app shows you the product prices from different retailers to show you where to buy the product affordably. Some apps require you to scan the barcode while others allow you to type in the product name to find your product. The price comparison website then shows the customer a list of retailers who are selling the same product, and how much they’re selling for. Those looking to save money on purchases are more likely to use a price comparison app. To attract budget-conscious customers you’ll need to offer a lower product price. However, it isn’t necessary to lower your product price to attract customers to your store.
The Amazon sales rank (ASR) provides an indication of the popularity of a product sold on any Amazon locale. It is a relative indicator of popularity that is updated hourly. Effectively, it is a "best sellers list" for the millions of products stocked by Amazon. While the ASR has no direct effect on the sales of a product, it is used by Amazon to determine which products to include in its bestsellers lists. Products that appear in these lists enjoy additional exposure on the Amazon website and this may lead to an increase in sales. In particular, products that experience large jumps (up or down) in their sales ranks may be included within Amazon's lists of "movers and shakers"; such a listing provides additional exposure that might lead to an increase in sales. For competitive reasons, Amazon does not release actual sales figures to the public. However, Amazon has now begun to release point of sale data via the Nielsen BookScan service to verified authors. While the ASR has been the source of much speculation by publishers, manufacturers, and marketers, Amazon itself does not release the details of its sales rank calculation algorithm. Some companies have analyzed Amazon sales data to generate sales estimates based on the ASR, though Amazon states:

Goodreads is a "social cataloging" website founded in December 2006 and launched in January 2007 by Otis Chandler, a software engineer, and entrepreneur, and Elizabeth Chandler. The website allows individuals to freely search Goodreads' extensive user-populated database of books, annotations, and reviews. Users can sign up and register books to generate library catalogs and reading lists. They can also create their own groups of book suggestions and discussions. In December 2007, the site had over 650,000 members and over 10 million books had been added. Amazon bought the company in March 2013.
