Amazon is upping its delivery game this week by launching a new delivery service called Prime Now that will bring diapers, Fitbits, televisions, and thousands of other essential items, to your doorstep in under an hour.

Prime Now is available today in select areas of New York City from 6 a.m. to midnight, with more cities planned for 2015. The new service is being packaged as part of your annual Amazon Prime subscription, and includes over 25,000 items.

Amazon even created a video to show what you can order:

Amazon may not have sold as many Fire Phones as it would have hoped, but the retail giant certainly isn’t giving up on the device. A new software update rolling out now to Fire Phone customers demonstrates its support with a whole host of new features and improvements, including support for call blocking, custom ringtones, VPN connections, and lots more.

If you treated yourself to a 4K television in the Black Friday sales, you’re going to love Amazon’s latest Instant Video update, because the retail giant is now showing movies and TV shows in Ultra HD. Not only can you buy and rent 4K content, but you’ll also be able to stream it as part of your Prime subscription — but only if you live in the U.S.

Motorola’s new Moto G is already excellent value for money, and thanks to Amazon’s Gold Box deal, you can no get it $30 cheaper. For today only, both global GSM and U.S. GSM variants in black and white are just $149.99.

Seen a better deal elsewhere but want free Prime shipping? Amazon’s new “Make an Offer” option allows you to negotiate prices with sellers to bag a better deal. Just like eBay’s “Best Offer” function, it allows buyers to submit their own valuation for hundreds of thousands of items which sellers can then accept, decline, or counter.
