Intro

The Big Show - New Devices and Integrations at CES

Google and Amazon are both strutting their stuff at CES - there are a ton of new products, and we've highlighted some of the most interesting below - including wearables (glasses and headphones), smart home devices, in-car integrations, home appliances, even a "smart bathroom". Who knows what will catch on, but the breadth of product and integrations offered by both is extraordinary.

And at least one wildcard - more news about the rumored Facebook competitor to the Echo Show. Does this mean Alexa (and voice) threatens social media incumbents similar to how it threatens search? Is Facebook worried that the Spot and Show will become the "new" newsfeed?
