After trying your front door, Amazon wants to let people deliver packages inside your garage

After trying your front door, Amazon wants to let people deliver packages inside your garage

Amazon has come up with a new way for you to receive packages: leaving them inside your garage. Remember when Amazon wanted you to automatically unlock your front door for couriers to drop off deliveries? Amazon Key boss Rohit Shrivastava admits to The Verge that the idea raised some “challenges” and “emotional concerns,” but the company is still trying to launch a successful delivery service that lets strangers into your house. Only Amazon sees your garage as a better place to do that now.That’s why the new Amazon Key for Garage lets the company’s deliverymen open your garage door to deliver packages there instead. It works with all Amazon Prime deliveries, and you can both monitor your garage with a camera and get notifications when deliveries are made. The company thinks it may be an easier sell for large packages, not to mention families concerned about weather or pe

Marc Andreessen: audio will be ‘titanically important’ and VR will be ‘1,000’ times bigger than AR

In a new a16z podcast with the venture firm’s founders Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz, there’s a lot to enjoy, from Andreessen’s TV show recommendations to Horowitz’s secret to excellent barbecue. (It’s pretty much just “time,” as you might imagine.)More useful for our founder readers may be Andreessen’s predictions around tech and, because he’s asked about them specifically, his predictions when it comes to wearables, including that virtual reality will be “one thousand” times bigger than augmented reality. It’s an interesting statement given the firm’s beton Magic Leap and its AR goggles.

Apple just signed a deal with its former top rival, Samsung, showing how the company's changing

Apple announced a partnership with Samsung, one of its fiercest rivals, on Sunday morning. Soon, customers who owns select Samsung smart TVs will be able to access iTunes movie and TV content. AirPlay 2 support will let iPhone and iPad owners send content from their screens to the TVs, too.The announcement shows how much Apple is changing, and how it's working closer with one-time rivals to bring its services to more people.Samsung and Apple have a weird history.For most of this decade, the two companies have been the top two smartphone makers in the world by market share, with Samsung usually on top. (Recently, Huawei usurped Apple's number-two spot). The two companies battled it out in court for years, with Apple accusing Samsung of ripping off its ideas and violating its patents. Most of those battles have been settled.
Google Assistant will soon be on a billion devices, and feature phones are next

Google Assistant will soon be on a billion devices, and feature phones are next

As CES kicks off, Google has a massive presence: monorails, a booth that’s three times larger than last year, and likely a giant pile of news to announce. But ahead of all the actual product news, the company wants to beat its chest a little by announcing some numbers. By the end of the month, it expects that Google Assistant will be on 1 billion devices — up from 500 million this past May.That’s 900 million more than the number Amazon just gave us for Alexa. But just like Amazon, Google’s number comes with caveats. In an interview with The Verge, Manuel Bronstein, the company’s vice president of Google Assistant, copped to it. “The largest footprint right now is on phones. On Android devices, we have a very very large footprint,” he says. He characterizes the ratio of phones as “the vast majority” of that billion number, but he won’t specify it more than that. Though he does argue that smart speakers and other connected home devices comprise a notable and growing portion.
How Google’s Duo effect other Video Applications?

How Google’s Duo effect other Video Applications?

Google Duo is intended to partner with Google Allo. Allo focuses on text messaging, similar to Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Skype and similar solutions. Duo, by contrast, offers one-to-one video messaging, similar to Apple's FaceTime product.Available for both Android and iOS, Duo aims to simplify the video-chat experience by offering simple controls and only person-to-person communication. It doesn't require a separate account; log in with your phone number, and connect with other Duo users based on their phone number in your contacts list. Duo does not support a Web version, so Windows users are locked out of the platform, although Google's use of the WebRTC standard means that desktop clients (even ones not developed by Google) could work with the service.
Apple’s increasingly tricky international trade-offs

Apple’s increasingly tricky international trade-offs

Far from Apple’s troubles in emerging markets and China, the company is attracting the ire of what should really be a core supporter demographic naturally aligned with the pro-privacy stance CEO Tim Cook has made into his public soapbox in recent years — but which is instead crying foul over perceived hypocrisy.These users want more choice over key elements such as the search engine that can be set as the default in Safari on iOS (Apple currently offers four choices: Google,  Yahoo, Bing and DuckDuckGo, all U.S. search engines; and with ad tech giant Google set as the default).
Apple Cuts Revenue Forecast Because of Slow iPhone Sales in China

Apple Cuts Revenue Forecast Because of Slow iPhone Sales in China

SAN FRANCISCO — Apple reduced its revenue expectations for the first time in 16 years on Wednesday because of poor iPhone sales in China, an unexpected development that underscored the slowing of China’s economy and raised fears of further turmoil in global markets. Apple’s surprise announcement was the clearest confirmation yet that the Chinese economy is in serious trouble. Beijing’s effort last spring to clamp down on credit, which sparked a slowdown, and an intensifying trade war with the United States have unnerved consumers and business-people alike.
