Latest & Greatest Gadgets: Kindle Paperwhite Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the latest Kindle Paperwhite reads like paper— no annoying glare, even in bright sunlight. Paperwhite guides light toward the surface of the display with its nextgen front light—unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes—so you can read comfortably without eyestrain. Adjust your screen's brightness for great reading in any light. A single charge can last up to eight weeks (based on a half hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at ten), unlike tablets that need to be charged each night.

GoPro mounts enable you to capture a fully immersive experience of your most exciting moments while ensuring your camera is securely attached and with you for the ride. Helmets, poles, boards, vehicles—and even yourself, there’s a GoPro camera mount that will help you get the perfect angle and POV for your most epic adventures.
