Prime Wardrobe, Amazon's "try before you buy" shopping service first announced last summer, is officially out of beta and open to all Prime members in the U.S. as of today. The service has been gradually opening up to more customers over the course of the year, so many Prime members may have already had access before today's official unveiling.
Prime Wardrobe is Amazon's answer to the increasingly popular personalized shopping services like Stitch Fix and Trunk, which send a curated box of clothing to customers on a regular basis. These services allow consumers to try on clothing and other items in the home, then keep what they like and send back the rest.

Nobody wants to fall prey to a phishing scam. There's a good reason that such scams will continue, though: They are successful enough for cybercriminals to make massive profits. 
Phishing scams have been around practically since the inception of the Internet, and they will not go away any time soon. Fortunately, there are ways to avoid becoming a victim yourself. 

Currently, 29 states have defined instructional materials to include digital versions; 30 allow the implementation; and six have required the use of digital curriculum. The latest update to the State Education Technology Directors Association's analysis of the digital learning landscape offered these metrics and others to highlight how state policies and guidance are evolving to support the shift to digital instructional materials for learning.

The fact that SETDA has updated its " Navigating the Digital Shift: Broadening Student Learning Opportunities " just a year after the  previous edition  was published indicates how quickly this segment of education is evolving.
