A computer’s place is in the kitchen – Computerworld

A Wall Street Journal exclusive last week revealed that “dozens” of Amazon engineers who worked on the failed Fire Phone at the company’s Silicon Valley-based Lab126 were (true to the branding) fired.

It was a great scoop but the Journal buried the lead. The 20th paragraph dropped this incredible fact:

“Still in the works is a high-end computer for the kitchen — code-named Kabinet — designed to serve as a hub for an Internet-connected home and capable of taking voice commands for tasks like ordering merchandise from Amazon.com.”

I take this news very seriously. The reason is that Amazon has demonstrated vision and the capacity to lead in the consumer electronics industry.
