CES, Best Buy & a $7k Alexa-enabled Toilet. Really?
CES is now the biggest electronics show on the Vegas Strip, but are the Internet, Best Buy, and $7k Alexa-enabled toilets helping curb Strip trip? Um, yes, and here's why. Plus our Fast Five: - Alphabet draws an Android #MeToo lawsuit; - PC sales feel the US v China burn; - Apple's innovation impression is wearing thin; - Foldable TVs & phones are so (not) cool; and - Elon Musk goes 'rocket retro' with the new SpaceX Starship. Our Tech Bites Winner: US Mobile carriers reveal just how little they care about consumer privacy and safety; meanwhile Amazon's Ring lets people see if the postman actually rings twice. Our Crystal Ball: How many people will actually put a foldable phone in their pocket, and will parachute pants really make a comeback? And did you know... CES was launched in the 1960s as the Computer Electronics Show in NYC, featuring the latest in pocket radios.
