Domino's CEO's parting shot - we're going to be 100% digital
‘If you figure today we are north of 60% on our digital orders and about 10% of our orders are walk-in orders -people just walking into the store and somebody takes the order there – and those can be handled with kiosks, so that’s how those are going to be digital. But you’re looking at, today, 25% or maybe slightly more that are still old-fashioned phone orders. And think maybe three minutes average on the phone for somebody to take a phone order.’

Ordering from voice tubes
"Purchases made through devices such as Google Home and Amazon's Echo are projected to leap from $2 billion to $40 billion by 2022 as technology improves, U.S. consumers become more comfortable and the speakers become nearly as commonplace in homes as a flat-screen TV, according to a new study from OC&C Strategy Consultants."


"Shoppers are more apt to buy cheaper items, such as phone charger cables, via voice. The average online basket was $661 for online purchases of electronics, compared with $239 for voice orders, OC&C said. "

Apple’s Siri-equipped HomePod comes to your home on February 9
Apple is pretty cool consistent in anemic features versus alternatives, but like the Windows says. Of course, when Apple nails the opinionated workflow, you appreciate it:

“Since Apple revealed HomePod, it's been clear that the company is focusing more on sound quality and the music-listening experience with this smart speaker than Siri's capabilities as a home assistant. That's why Apple's device is so much more expensive than most Amazon Echo devices and the Google Home and Home Mini speakers (although Google does have Home Max, its own high-end smart speaker). However, HomePod will not launch with an important music feature: multi-room audio and stereo. Apple states that this will come to HomePod later this year through a free software update, allowing two or more HomePods to play the same audio throughout an entire home or specific room.”

How smart speakers stole the show from smartphones

Cricket, long tails, podcasting….[or, "silkysmoothlaidbackness"]
Thomas asks for some bedtime stories. It's a joke, but it sounds like fun. I never realized how "silkysmoothlaidbackness" I project until I started podcasting.
