Toyota will offer Alexa in its cars starting later this year

Although the concept sounds like the future of driving technology, cars will not be able to use voice assistants for an entirely autonomous driving experience. Google Assistant is being introduced into Android Auto equipped vehicles including certain offerings from Ford, Holden, Honda, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Subaru. It is unclear which models specifically will get it, but Entune 3.0 first came to the fold previous year via the 2018 Toyota Camry.

For example, if you ask Alexa for directions to the nearest toilet paper conference, the device will show a map right before your very eyes, but only if you have an Amazon account.

It should be noted that Microsoft has its own voice assistant - Cortana system, which is integrated in Windows platform 10.

Circuit City to relaunch online next month, with stores on the horizon
The trend known as the "retail apocalypse" has worsened in recent years, as retail bankruptcies reached a six-year high in 2017. Its website will relaunch February 15, the company's CEO, Ronny Shmoel, said Monday at the Consumer Electronics Show.

In the meantime, however, bringing Alexa to Windows exposes Alexa for Business to a powerful new audience. Analysts with RBC Capital Markets estimated that Amazon sold 33 million Echo devices in 2017, up from 4 million the prior year.

At CES 2018, wearable display company Vuzix unveiled its latest pair of augmented reality glasses, the Vuzix Blade, which can communicate with Amazon's Alexa assistant. However, with the advent of smart home devices, Cortana's greatest weakness proved to be its lack of smart home controls. A Kohler-branded mirror, the Verdera Voice Lighted Mirror, has embedded microphones and speakers, bringing Alexa to the space above the bathroom sink.

Young, Seemingly Fit Pennsylvania Man Dies of Flu Complications
Mother Beverly told WPXI that before his death Kyler was extremely fit and was going to school to become a personal trainer. The official source of departure was organ failure as a result of septic shock from the flu , Kyler's family said.

Ford announced plans to begin testing Alexa in cars at CES past year, and BMW previously announced plans to begin adding Alexa support to its model lineup last September.

The 24-inch model starts at $1,332. PC makers like HP, Asus and Acer will integrate Amazon Alexa in their respective models such as HP Pavilion Wave, Asus ZenBook/VivoBook and Acer Spin, Switch, Swift and Aspire.
