Amazon today released data from Prime Day 2016 calling it its "biggest day ever" for the company, and aside from the obvious uptick in sales of Amazon-branded items like the Fire TV, Kindle, and Dash Buttons, customers globally scored hot deals on memory sticks, electric toothbrushes, and 'Kung Fu Panda 3.'
