The biggest hardware and software arrival since the iPad in 2010 has been Amazon’s Echo voice-controlled intelligent speaker, powered by its Alexa software assistant. It arrived in 2015, and was followed last year by the similar Google Home device. I expect others.
No, Uncle Walt is wrong. That same year Apple launched Watch. Neither Amazon nor Apple will admit to how many Echo devices or Watches have been sold to day, but if guesstimates are even close to accuracy– and neither Apple nor Amazon are denying them– Watch outsells Echo by about 10 to 1.
