Amazon won’t reveal how many Alexas it has sold–at least one estimate says about 10 million–but in a sense, it’s an irrelevant stat to the balance sheet. Amazon only needs to worry that, if and when people order toilet paper or Domino’s pizza with their voices, Amazon has a product ready to take the order. Likewise, the Chromebook has started eating into dwindling iPad and Mac sales for all sorts of reasons, but chiefly, that schools can buy students a fully functional laptop for less than the price of an iPad, and Macbooks are all more than $1,000. And Google gets to raise the next generation of internet users on Chrome, Search, Google Docs, and other services core to the intimacy of Google’s ultimate ad play. … [Read more...] about Why Does Apple Think It Can Get Away With Selling Overpriced Stuff?

An Answer To The Housing Crisis? Cover’s factory will have a capacity of 100 ADUs per year, but that could change. In fact, the company is banking on it. Los Angeles was a strategic location for Cover. The city is in the middle of a housing and homeless crisis: There are an estimated 47,000 people living in shelters or on the street.
