  • Amazon Unveils Echo Show
  • The Echo Show Is a Step Backwards
  • Echo Show vs. Apple Watch

We begin today's email with my thoughts and observations on the Echo Show, Amazon's new 7-inch tablet speaker powered by Alexa. The discussion turns to Amazon's strategy behind Echo Show and why I think the product ends up being a step backwards when it comes to removing barriers between technology and the user. The email then turns to why the Echo Show is not like Apple Watch in terms of reducing smartphone friction. We discuss how Echo Show is the complete opposite of Apple Watch.
