Here's an interesting story about how Amazon's Alexa is influencing the evolution of computing.

It's interesting to see the human-machine interface evolve to widely include responses to verbal commands. Reminds me of Hal in "2001—A Space Odyssey."

It's also interesting to witness the fierce competition among technology biggies Google, Amazon, Apple and Microsoft. Fundamentally valuable applications often appear to be zero-sum games, even as applications of evolving technology are bounded only by imagination.

It's also interesting that IBM isn't mentioned. Watson appears to be out of the equation here.
