C by GE Sol, a futuristic lamp with Alexa, will arrive in September

In early December 2016, General Electric unveiled a new lamp with a futuristic design and integrated Amazon Alexa. Called C by GE, this lamp has an unusual circular ring-like design with built-in lights and a diffuser that eliminates the need for a lamp shade. Though the company detailed its features at the time, it didn't provide any information about availability or pricing.

Samsung Bixby Vision’s Amazon feature finally works on Verizon

Samsung's highlight feature for the Galaxy S8, aside from its Infinity Display, has had a rather rough start. Bixby, its self-made smart assistant, didn't exactly launch guns a blazing. Even worse if you happened to be on Verizon, where Bixby's already limited starting features were even more limited. For its part, Verizon did acknowledge the issue and promised a fix soon. That soon has finally arrived, at least according to some users, who can finally use Bixby Vision to shop on Amazon.

Amazon’s Echo with a screen tipped for May reveal

Amazon may have split opinion this week with Echo Look, which encourages Alexa to watch you getting dressed, but it seems it's not letting that slow the roll-out of new smart assistants.

You can still get an NES Classic Edition, but it’ll cost you

You can still get an NES Classic Edition, but it’ll cost you

Earlier today, the hard-to-find NES Classic Edition was briefly available at Best Buy. As is usually the case with the NES Classic Edition, it sold out quickly, but there's one big difference this time around: this could very well be the final restock Best Buy gets. We might see other retailers get more consoles sometime this week, but once April is over, there won't be anymore replenishment coming from Nintendo.
