It's hard to tell whether the new USB-C chargers support fast charging.
I wouldn't mind getting an external battery pack that did USB C quick charging, does Choetech have one?.
According to Engadget, Amazon is reportedly building a smaller, cheaper Echo. The important questions are, how much smaller and how much cheaper, and does it share anything with the original Echo? I can imagine a portable that I could carry through my house and use it to interact with Alexa such as turning on lights. Frankly, Amazon could provide this functionality via the Alexa app rather than creating a separate device.
Everyone is anxiously waiting to see whether the Lions will keep Caldwell.
