Our news week edition of Ctrl-Walt-Delete continues as the Echo Show, Amazon’s newest product with Alexa, was announced on Tuesday. Walt and Nilay look at the history of these gadgets, like the Chumby; the current competitors, like Harmon Kardon’s new speaker with Cortana; and also the future of ambient computing. Is Apple next in line to release an Amazon Echo competitor with Siri?
We love your feedback on the topics of the show and suggestions on how to make our podcasts better and more fun. You can tweet at Walt at @waltmossberg and Nilay at @reckless.
