Easter weekend storm to spread wintry mix from Midwest to Northeast
Almost two weeks after spring began, residents in the northeastern United States trudged through another snowstorm Monday morning. Snow began falling from 3am this morning while temperatures, which were in the low 40s, plummeted to below the mid-30s.

One feature that's not rolling out nationwide is in-home delivery. We'll keep you posted on when Amazon plans to roll-out the functionality in Europe. While Amazon appeals to a broad shopper base, Amazon Prime appeals to a younger demographic, particularly those aged 15-34, with the benefit of having free and fast delivery appealing to those shopping frequently at Amazon.

Amazon Key is a relatively new smart lock service that allows drop-offs inside your front door and leave packages.

With Amazon's track record of encouraging companies to come onboard the Alexa bandwagon, this will likely lead to more smart lamps being released that can do a lot more than just turn on and off.
