Reviews for the Google Home are out, including one from our very own Walt Mossberg.

This week on Ctrl-Walt-Delete, Walt and Nilay compare the new intelligent speaker to the obvious competitor, the Amazon Echo. Can Google, which has promising artificial intelligence software and a massive amount of data, compete with Amazon’s successful device?

Also, the 13-inch Macbook Pro has finally updated and we’ve tested it out. Second half of the show, we give your our experience with it.

Listen to our 50th episode right here right now!

Has anyone tried listening to the show on an Echo?

We love your feedback on the topics of the show and suggestions on how to make our show better and more fun — you can tweet at Walt at @waltmossberg and Nilay at @reckless. And of course, we'd love it if you subscribed in iTunes (here's the direct RSS feed, if you like), along with The Verge's other great podcasts like What's Tech, and The Vergecast.
