Today's Above Avalon email includes the following stories: 

  • Amazon's Peculiar Hardware Event
  • Gauging Amazon and Apple Competition
  • Thursday Q&A

We kick off today's email with my thoughts and observations on Amazon's Echo hardware event yesterday in Seattle. The discussion then turns to the competitive dynamic between Amazon and Apple. We also go over who I think Amazon has in their crosshairs. We end the email with the latest installment of member Q&A, and I answer the following questions from Above Avalon members: 

  • Does Apple care about competing with the Swiss watch industry?
  • Why are you so negative regarding mechanical watches?
  • Where do Dyson's automotive plans fit in the evolving transportation marketplace?
  • What do I think about the iPhone Upgrade Program?
  • When would it make sense to unveil the second version of iPhone X?
