Google Assistant for DISH

At CES in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Toyota announced the voice technology would be incorporated with the carmaker's infotainment systems.

Lou Schreurs, VP, Connected Home & Luxury Audio BU, General Management says, "When we launched the LINK series a year ago it represented a major milestone for us, as the first voice-activated, multi-room speakers to use Google Assistant and deliver Grammy award-winning JBL sound".

Peter Newman, research analyst for BI Intelligence, has put together a Smart Speaker report that analyzes the market potential of the Echo Look, Echo Show, and HomePod. But if there's one thing that binds a lot of them, it would be AI assistant.

To start, Google Assistant will be embedded into 13 voice-activated speakers - outside of Google Home and Google Home Mini - from LG, Bang & Olufsen and JBL to just name a few.

"[The firm] has proven that there is a logical use case for a hands-free assistant in the smart home". But it doesn't behave like a traditional tablet: you don't interact with it by managing and installing apps. The new Lenovo's smart display uses the company's IoT platform.

LG isn't saying much about the speaker other than it has an 8-inch touch screen and has both Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in. A smart display with Assistant will probably be somewhere between these two prices. Users can also ask it to identify nearby businesses in the middle of a trip and offer directions to them.

So folks, that's what all about the new Smart Display from Lenovo powered by Google Assistant.

As CES gets underway, Amazon and Google are likely to turn up the volume on their respective business deals with electronics makers in a bid to control voice-based user interfaces.

Bannon Apologizes for Role in Book Critical of White House
The president also referred to Wolff's book as a "Fake Book" written by a "totally discredited author" in a separate tweet. Cotton said this tell-all book is similar to other claims the media made when describing other Republican presidents.

The Link View is a smart display speaker with of course Google Assistant embedded into the device.

But there are also moments when a screen would make the Assistant even more helpful, like when you need to learn how to cut a pineapple, and the best way is to watch a video.

We'll see Vuzix's AR glasses with Alexa support before the summer of 2018, at a price point around $1,000 United States dollars. Amazon's Echo Show, by comparison, is priced at $229.99.

It's good to see the smart glasses market continue after Google Glass had a rough test launch.

But, oddly enough, we may not even have to make a choice between assistants. Most large technology companies, like Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, and Amazon, reserve their product announcements for their own keynotes and events.

Jumping to a completely different product category, Acer and Asus announced at CES that they are bringing Alexa to their laptops.

Alexa is coming to smart glasses such as these.
