This week’s show will cover the big Amazon announcements in the guest segment, but first Kevin and I focused on the retailer’s smaller announcements around its new show and tell feature and voice interoperability efforts. Kevin has thoughts about cameras in the home to share here. We also talked about Google changing how it handles voice recordings to help address user outrage while covering a study that covers the privacy challenges of other IoT devices. Then we dive into the geeky idea of merging Wi-Fi and LoRaWAN into a super IoT protocol, cover Zira’s industrial IoT software and figure out who might buy FitBit. We end by answering a question about smart bedside table lamps.
