Amazon’s COVID-19 test is now available to consumers


Amazon is selling its own COVID-19 test kit directly to customers. Results from the test will appear on an Amazon diagnostics website that was originally designed for use by Amazon employees. The test’s public availability was first reported by Stat News.

The test is on sale for $39.99 and has one-day shipping through Prime in some areas of the US.

To use the test, a patient swabs their own nose at home and places it in a box with a prepaid shipping return label. The swabs are then sent to a centralized lab. Amazon got the Food and Drug Administration’s sign-off on its COVID-19 test kit in March. At the time, it planned to use the test for its onsite employee testing program.

At-home medical testing got a new burst of attention over…

WWE Hell In A Cell 2021: Match Card, How To Watch, And Predictions

Coming on Sunday, June 20 is WWE’s annual PPV Hell in a Cell. The event features a couple of big matches that take place entirely inside a red cage, including a top, and this is mainly saved for high-intensity feuds where a normal one-on-one match won’t do it justice. The 2021 Hell in a Cell PPV is slowly coming together with a few high-profile matches already booked. Here’s everything you need to know from the match card to how to watch and more.

This year’s Hell in a Cell will be taking place at the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida. However, it will be another WWE PPV without a physical audience. That means it’s another installment of the Thunderdome, where fans will be in attendance, virtually.

Hell in a Cell will feature numerous matches we may have seen before, dating back to this year’s Wrestlemania, but it will have a new twist. That twist, of course, is a giant metal structure surrounding the ring. However, in order to watch the WWE PPV, you’ll need a streaming service subscription, depending on where you live.

The next step for wearables could be illness ‘warning lights’

Apple Watch OS 2

Harpreet Rai, the CEO of smart ring company Oura, often tells a story about a March 2020 Facebook post. An Oura ring user posted that the device said that his overall health score had dropped below his normal level, which prompted him to get tested for COVID-19 — and the test ended up being positive. The company heard from other users, too.

The anecdotal reports encouraged Oura to partner with research teams to try to figure out how well the ring could predict who might be sick with COVID-19. Their studies were part of a wave of interest over the past year in wearable devices as illness detectors. Now, flush with data, researchers and wearable companies are looking toward their next steps.

Research done over the past year showed that…

Guardians Of The Galaxy Is Launching On Switch October 26

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is coming to Nintendo Switch on October 26. Announced during Nintendo’s E3 2021 Direct, the Eidos Montreal superhero game was previously revealed during Square Enix’s E3 presentation.

While none of the footage shown was new, the Nintendo reveal did say “high-speed internet connection required.” Considering Guardians of the Galaxy is a single-player game, this implies that it might be a cloud streaming game similar to Control and Hitman 3‘s Switch releases.

Control’s cloud version scored 7/10 in GameSpot’s review. “While it does have some minor issues, Control streaming on Switch is impressive,” said reviewer Phil Hornshaw. “Even a few rooms away from my Wi-Fi router, the game always handled well, and I was able to fight through battle after battle with the Hiss with nothing more bothering me than a less-than-optimum frame rate.”
