CES 2017: Alexa's show
Amazon is quickly establishing market dominance in the home automation sector. In less than two years Alexa has gone from fringe product to household name, forcing competitors like Google to play catch up.
CES 2017 further solidified Amazon's edge by being filled with new products that come with Alexa. Samsung, LG, Linksys, and even Mattel are showing off products that either come with Alexa out of the box or are Alexa-integrated.
