Amazon's Eero takeover will feed its smart home obsession
Lastly Amazon acquire Ero, the maker of WiFi, mesh WiFi or WiFi mesh.
I think is mesh WiFi.
All right, mesh WiFi devices.
This little simply white tox.
Take us through, what is this mean for Amazon Well, A obviously means that Amazon wants to control every possible aspect of your home.
It already control the smart speaker market with the Echo.
They're going hard on smart televisions.
Fire TV lineup.
Fire TV lineup.
Wall clocks, mocrowaves.
So it makes a lot of sense to have A presence in this popular up until now independent maker of academic next gen wi-fi routers.
I will say as someone who does suffer from wi-fi issues from aside from my office it's all kind of crappy elsewhere, I have looked into these mesh wi-fi networks There's only, and Google really is the only other viable comparer here, right?

What does that mean?
Well I think one of the things that some people are raising as a possible red flag is that now we're at the point where two bohemoths kind of control the market for this kind of router, and the one that's entering, Amazon, you know, people already have misgivings about how much Amazon knows about them.
Whether or not, whatever your take is on how much they're gleaning about your conversations from an Echo.
