Today's Above Avalon email covers the following topics: 

  • Breaking Down Stationary Smart Speaker Hype
  • NYT Goes Off on Apple Watch
  • Fashion and Luxury Executives Depart Apple

Today's email begins with my thoughts on The New York Times' recent article on the current state of voice assistants and stationary smart speakers. We go over why there is good reason to be skeptical of the stationary smart speaker hype. The discussion then turns to The New York Times fashion director going off on Apple Watch and its impact, or lack thereof, on the fashion industry. This leads us to taking a closer look at recent fashion/luxury executive departures from Apple and what they may signal for the company.
