Facebook may finally be ready with its competitor to Amazon's Echo Show

Amazon remarks that Alexa has "over 50,000 skills and counting", so we'd imagine that the assistant can perform most of those through the Echo Auto.

The Echo Auto is one of the most interesting items of the bunch.

Echo Dot and Echo Plus received minor refreshes, including a new fabric-wrapped design with rounded edges, louder speakers and a new temperature sensor in the Echo Plus. Features include voice commands such as asking "Alexa, where is the nearest Starbucks?" or requesting directions via voice command. The device won't be released until 14 November, though American customers can pre-order it right now from Amazon's website.

Amazon unveiled a new TV device called Fire TV Recast, which lets you watch and record live TV content and stream it from anywhere via your Fire TV, Echo Show, Fire tablet, or mobile device. As it modernized and upgraded the Skype platform, Microsoft killed off most of these integrations: many of those devices couldn't use the new Skype network, and most offered no convenient path for software updates.

The AmazonBasics Microwave won't ship until November 14th, but it's already (apparently) the number 1 best seller on Amazon for microwaves.

Amazon Smart Plug is a new accessory that adds Alexa functionality to "dumb" electronics.

Jimmy Butler Requests Trade from T'Wolves to Knicks, Nets, or Clippers
The Athletic refuted that notion , reporting that Butler's issues with the Timberwolves are based more on "contractual matters". When reached for comment regarding the news , Bernie Lee, Butler's agent, said he has "absolutely no comment on that".

Alexa has gotten smarter, more conversational and even intuitive during the past year as teams at Amazon work hard on getting the digital assistant to better understand people, according to Limp.

- Guarding homes - A freshly announced Alexa Guard service synchronizes with Echo speakers in the home and security cameras from Amazon-owned smart doorbell maker Ring. You can ask it to play songs, call contacts or shut off some smart appliance you left on at home.

Echo Sub can be paired with any Echo speaker to add some more oomph to your music. The company announced a $200 Echo Link that can connect to a receiver or amplifier and add a bunch of inputs so you can connect speakers to it.

If you're a bit more of an audiophile, you'll want to check out the Echo Link or Echo Link Amp. Amazon says it'll run off a standard USB port connection or 12v cigarette lighter (see, they really are thinking of old cars), and the dongle will connect via Bluetooth or 3.5mm port. So you can command Alexa remotely to turn on or off any device that's plugged into Amazon Smart Plug.

This product does exactly what the name suggests - it is a plug that's compatible with Alexa. This camera monitors indoor and outdoor areas in 1080p HD.

The Stick Up Cam Wired is mostly described by its name.
