This $26 buckle-free belt is so weird, but it’s also pretty brilliant

We’re not going to lie — the FreeBelts Buckle-Free Comfortable Elastic Belt is one of the weirdest things we’ve seen in a long time. You know what though? It works really, really well. This buckle-free belt connects to the two front belt loops on your pants and it holds them up using tension around the sides and back instead of all the way around. This way you have no buckle to mess around with or to spoil the line in your shirt. It’s very cool and it’s only $26 on Amazon.

Here are the bullet points from the product page:

  • MAKES LIFE EASIER: Never fiddle with the buckle. Snap on once and forget you’re wearing a belt all day. Hassle-free dressing, time-saver for bathroom breaks!
  • INCREDIBLY COMFORTABLE: The elastic strap breathes with you. No buckle pressing into your stomach. No need to adjust when you sit down, even after a big meal. Always keeps your pants in place.
  • SLIM, MINIMAL LOOK: Eliminates the bulky buckle bulge and awkward flap on the side. Very low-profile. Beautifully simple.
  • EXCELLENT QUALITY: Custom-made, highest quality elastic weave for great support. Individual handmade craftsmanship. You’ll be impressed!
  • GREAT FOR EVERYONE: For men and women of ALL SIZES. For school, work, all jobs and activities. For anyone who wants to stop hassling with buckles. For people with special needs and seniors.

Google is making another ‘smart display’ that nobody asked for

Since the Amazon Echo Show launched last summer, the $129.99 tablet with an Amazon Echo built in has been modestly popular, at best. But since Amazon took the tech industry by surprise with the runaway success of the original Amazon Echo, other manufacturers aren’t waiting around this time to see if the Echo Show is going to actually have any staying power.

According to a report from Nikkei Asian Review, typically a good supply-chain source for new devices, Google is planning to release its own smart display based around the Google Assistant by the time holiday gift-buying begins. After all, no one can criticise your gift if no one in the known universe has any idea what it’s for.

The Google Home View — I’m just going to guess that’s the kind of blandly generic name this device is going to get — is reportedly going to be a big part of Google’s smart-home device plans. “Google targets to ship some 3 million units for the first batch of the new model of smart speaker that comes with a screen,” a source told Nikkei. “It’s an aggressive plan.”

Research firm Canalys said that Amazon only shipped 315,000 units in 2017, and since Amazon never releases individual sales data for its devices, that’s the best estimate we have. In any case, sales-ranking data for the Echo Show on Amazon’s website shows that it hasn’t had a major uptick in popularity since then.

Google has one strategic weapon to win the popularity against the Echo Show, though — YouTube. When the Echo Show first debuted, it could play YouTube videos, but Google quickly killed that feature, citing terms of service violations as the very convenient reason to cripple a direct competitor’s device. Sales of the Echo Show went downhill shortly after, which shows that YouTube integration is something that the money-spending public actually care about.
