Amazon Echo Show (2nd gen) review: bigger and better smart display

Wednesday 04:14 GMT

The new second generation Echo Show is bigger with a better display, but is size enough to keep Amazon ahead of stiff competition from Google?

The Echo Show is one of the better-sounding smart speakers available, coming somewhere in between the Echo and the brilliant Sonos One or more expensive Apple HomePod. The new Show has an integrated smart home hub, which means you can connect smart bulbs, switches and other devices that use the Zigbee wireless protocol straight to the Amazon device without the need for another hub.

Wednesday 08:05 GMT

Bigger companies with more market power make sense in a fragmented industry where margins have been under pressure for years.

Newmont and Goldcorp together produced less than 10 million troy ounces of gold in fiscal year 2017, in turn less than one-tenth of global production in 2017, according to the World Gold Council. Compare that with iron ore, for instance, where just three companies control about 60% of the seaborne market.

Why bigger things could be ahead for David Wagner, Huddersfield Town's departing miracle man

Wednesday 13:36 GMT

Despite Huddersfield's lowly league position, his stock has undoubtedly risen during his time in Yorkshire and he must surely feel ready for a shot at a bigger club, either in the Premier League or back home in Germany.

Despite their tribulations over the past calendar year – Huddersfield would have been relegated last season had their pre-Christmas form not been so good –  a day after the move was announced, Terriers Chairman Dean Hoyle was adamant the German had not been fired.

Netflix thinks ‘Fortnite’ is a bigger competitor than other streaming services

Friday 16:21 GMT

Don’t miss: How ‘Fortnite’ cracked the code to become the most successful free videogame ever. That is quite a change from just a year ago, when Netflix talked about all the new competitors in streaming in its quarterly letter and didn’t mention any other type of service than streaming video.

Netflix Inc. has an ever-evolving view of its competitive landscape, and the current approach treats the popular online videogame “Fortnite” as more of a rival than HBO.
