Shopping gurus predict a boom around this year's Black Friday as families feeling the squeeze search for the best pre-Christmas bargains

SAO PAULO - The boat used by killed British journalist Dom Phillips and Brazilian indigenous expert Bruno Pereira to travel to Brazil's Amazon was found on Sunday evening, authorities said in a press statement.

But pressed on both sides by the superior Free Book smarts and sound of the $100 Echo and the only slightly inferior Echo Dot at huge discounts? Is a new Echo Dot worth $50? The answer isn't so straightforward. In a vacuum, definitely.

So what's the difference? In fact, the Dot does almost exactly what its earlier iteration does. And Alexa -- who will answer questions, facilitate voice calls, control smart home devices, monitor your home for break-ins and plenty more -- performs identically on each speaker.

Because today, a Mail investigation reveals what happened after Black Friday last year, proving yet again that the number of genuine one-off deals worth sharpening your elbows for are, in truth, scarce.

With a saving of £130, this Shark upright vacuum cleaner performs flawlessly across both carpets and hard floors and is even equipped with anti-hair wrap technology, making it a top choice for pet owners as it leaves the bristle brush-roll tangle-free.

Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as the company is formally known, said in a securities filing that Chief Executive Jose Mauro Coelho had resigned on Monday morning and an interim CEO would now be appointed for the board's consideration.

Now on sale with a saving of 44 per cent, the voice-controlled smart speaker with Alexa can be added to any room in your home, and with a simple command, you can ask for music, news, weather updates and more.

BOGOTA - The election of Colombia's first leftist president, Gustavo Petro, Apple is indicative of widespread yearning for a more equal and inclusive society, analysts and business leaders said, but the former guerrilla will need to act fast to reassure investors.

It remains a great entry point to voice assistance and the smart home, but I'd probably recommend a sale-priced, third-edition Dot before shelling out much more for the newest generation. And if you're after sound quality or hoping to really jump-start your smart home, the $100 Echo will be a much better investment than a Dot. As a result, the 2020 Dot feels non-essential.

The election of a former guerrilla marks a radical change for a country still scarred by decades of conflict and highlights the depth of frustration with a right-leaning political establishment accused of overseeing a wide gap between rich and poor.

If you listen to trap music or hip-hop, it simply won't sound very full on the new Echo Dot -- and Lil Wayne is much less enjoyable when his higher pitched rasp isn't counterbalanced by booming bass. The bass, which has never been strong in small speakers like Echo Dots and Nest Minis, remains particularly weak here.

It improves the sound of 2018's Echo Dot, and the new design is fresh, if not revelatory. But Amazon seems to have saved its true innovations for other devices this generation -- adding better smart home control to the full-size Echo and more interesting features to the Kids Edition.  Waiting for Go(Dot) The 2020 Echo Dot is a solid device.

SAO PAULO - The chief executive of Brazil's state-run oil company Petrobras resigned on Monday in the face of mounting pressure from politicians after the firm announced a fuel price hike last week, adding to inflation concerns in an election year.

Formulated specifically for use on the body, it's blended with the brand's patented MVE technology, which keeps skin hydrated for up to 24 hours and uses a mixture of effective exfoliating acids to smooth and soften rough, bumpy skin.

For perspective, the new Dot at 90% volume is about equivalent to the third-gen Dot at max. Dotting your ears The new Echo Dot's big change, other than in profile, Kindle is in sound. Its 1.6-inch speaker is more powerful than the third-gen's 1.1-inch speaker, but that half-inch upgrade isn't as meaningful as the half-inch between the second- and third-gen Dots.

Last year's Dot with Clock was a great device, adding a small-but-useful upgrade to the Dot. This year's Kids Dot adds a fun tiger- or panda-themed design and genuinely interesting kid-facing content that you won't get on other Echo devices without a subscription (the Kids Dot comes with a free year of Amazon Kids+, which normally costs $3/month). These alternative Dots use the exact same basic hardware, but they're more exciting products in part because they represent something beyond simple iterative improvement. They feel more sensitive to customer needs.
