For the past year or so, they were contained to things like smart speakers, such as the Google Home and the Amazon Echo. But now, Amazon and Google are partnering with companies that are building the assistants into everything from smart mirrors to lawnmowers and they’re all coming to the market now. Just a couple of years ago, neither Google nor Amazon had a booth at CES. Now, this year, their presence was everywhere. Google even had a roller coaster. And the message was clear. Amazon and Google are competing…

    (gentle music) – Hey, this is Dan Seifert with The Verge and I am here in Seattle at Amazon’s offices where they’ve just announced a ton of new products for the holiday season. There’s so many products. They’re all on theverge.com. I don’t know if I can even remember them all. But one of the biggest new products is a new update to the Echo Show.

Perhaps your familiar with the VHS versus Betamax battle of the 70’s and 80’s. Basically, these two formats competed and VHS won. One of the main reasons was this. Sony initially was the only manufacturer of Betamax so they could charge whatever they wanted to create tapes for others, while JVC licensed its VHS technology to anyone that wanted it. Pretty much everyone wound up with a VCR and you knew any movie…
