Consumer Tech Watch brings you news and opinion on trends in the tech world. My favorite topics cover devices, software, and tech firms; I keep an eye on smartphones, Chromebooks, AI, and firms like Google, Facebook, and Amazon.

New fields and applications are blossoming. Artificial intelligence deployed as virtual assistants excite me. With more players coming to the table, we’ll see increasingly┬áinteresting and capable assistants. Smartphones (and tablets) are another interesting venue for the ways they work their way into our daily lives, and are intimately tied to personal assistants. The tech firms want to be privy to every aspect of our lives, and are changing them in the process.
