Echo Show

Google, Apple, and Amazon might be locked in a war for the future of voice-control, but if you're setting up a smart home in 2017, there's no contest. Amazon's Alexa platform works with the most products, and can be activated by talking to a growing number of smart speakers. Right now, the coolest of those is the Echo Show, which can interact through voice, but also display search results, weather forecasts, or info and even video feeds from other smart home gear on its 7-inch touchscreen. If Alexa is going to be the language your smartened-up living room speaks, you might as well give the space the best, most capable brain available. [$230;]
