On the Amazon Pebble

I think Pebble could be a worthwhile member of the Amazon ecosystem:

  1. Alexa everywhere: With the Amazon phone out of the game for a while, an Alexa interface you carry on your wrist is a good second-best to the smartphone. It’s also a more even playing field against Siri and Google Now — compared to stuck inside an App.

  2. E-ink screens: Amazon already has the most beautiful E-ink screens on the market — there has to be some economies of scale in R&D and production on it.

  3. Dash button: As simple as the physical thingy, but you carry it all the time.

Needless to say my Pebble Time experiment is going really well. Really hope they survive a few more device iterations.
