Amazon Alexa is ruining the lives of children named Alexa and their parents can't get Amazon to help them (AMZN)

When Amazon launched its smart speaker Echo device in 2014, it named its female-sounding AI assistant with a popular human name: Alexa. With the stunning popularity of the device, including hundreds of millions of Alexa-enabled devices in use fielding billions of commands each week, Amazon says, the world "Alexa" has now become synonymous with that AI assistant. One unintended consequence is that kids (and adults) named Alexa are being teased and bullied mercilessly from everyone, kids and adu...

Samsung's new Star Wars-like bot could become the digital hub of the connected home — and that should worry Google and Amazon

Mike Shields, the former advertising editor for Business Insider who is now CEO of Shields Strategic Consulting, argues that Samsung's new robot Ballie has the potential to take on Google and Amazon's voice assistants. Nearly 29 million smart speakers were sold in 2019, and voice assistants played a big role in 2020's CES. Ballie is incredibly cute — and in trying to control the rest of your bots, terrifying at the same time. Whichever device becomes the hub of the home could play an incredibl...

Voice is going cause the same upheaval and it’s going to come even faster and be more wide-sweeping than mobile ever was. If the last decade was our mobile marketing revolution, then the upcoming decade is the era of voice. The mobile revolution made it possible for brands to reach their audiences wherever they we...

Apple's mistakes with HomePod will cost it a huge new market, according to a brutal Deutsche Bank analysis (AAPL)

Analysts at Deutsche Bank said Apple's HomePod smart speaker has "missed the mark" because it's too limited and expensive compared to Google and Amazon's competitors. This is important, because smart speakers might be the gateway for big tech firms into the growing smart home market. Amazon and Google currently dominate the smart speaker market and have managed to get their personal assistants into the homes of millions of people. Apple needed to get the HomePod right the first time if it want...

Apple's HomePod now pits Sonos against 3 tech goliaths worth a combined $2.4 trillion (AAPL, GOOG, AMZN)

Apple will release its HomePod smart speaker on February 9, to compete with the Google Home Max and the Amazon Echo. This leaves only one significant small player in the space, Sonos, which has to take on three tech goliaths who are worth $2.4 trillion collectively. Sonos was late to adding voice controls to its speakers and people might not want to pay the higher prices for them. Sonos can still compete with Apple if it can maintain an open ecosystem and gives customers more freedom than its ...

Samsung is reportedly ditching its smart speaker project

Earlier this month, we heard about Samsung’s plans to create a smart speaker that would feature its Bixby voice assistant and take on Amazon Echo, Google Home et al. Now, The Korea Herald reports from the company’s home country that the project is being shelved because Samsung doesn’t believe there’s enough money in it.

Amazon Echo, Google Home Devices Raise Privacy Questions

Legal experts say Congress and the states need to step in to protect Americans' privacy rights from the proliferation of voice-activated personal assistant devices such as Amazon's Echo and Google's Home, after a murder case in Arkansas raised questions about how much the devices are hearing -- and whether the government can demand access to their recordings. Prosecutors in Benton County, Arkansas, demanded Echo recordings from a home where a man was found dead in a hot tub. Prosecutors said th...

Google couldn't stop copying Apple, Amazon, and Facebook even if it wanted to (GOOG, GOOGL, MSFT, AMZN, FB)

Google's main business is search engine advertising. None of its other products and services even come close, financially speaking.  Google knows it must protect that business at all costs. If people use any other search engine, on any device, for any reason, it means they're not seeing a Google-delivered ad (or contributing data back to the Google ad sales mothership).  That's why new classes of devices like the Amazon Echo home voice assistant and Facebook's Oculus Rift virtual reality headset...
