Amazon announces new hardware, including a surveillance drone that patrols your house when you’re not there

Every year, Amazon holds an event where it announces all their new devices at once. 2020 is no different, but instead of having it in their Seattle headquarters, the company made its announcement in a form of a videoconference.

Among this year’s improved gadgets are Echo, Echo Dot and Echo Dot Clock. The new Echo has a whole new, spherical look. The Echo Dot and Echo Dot Clock will have a round shape as well. They will come in a new fabric finish too, with three different colors (Charcoal, Glacier White, Twilight Blue). It has many of the same smart hub features of the Echo Plus as well as compatibility with Amazon Sidewalk, the company’s own smart home tech. It will cost $100, the same as last year’s Echo.

Amazon has also announced new WiFi 6 Eero routers, the Eero 6 and the Eero Pro 6. The Eero 6 is the slightly domed model while the Eero Pro 6 has the slightly square shape of the original Eero. A single Eero 6 is $130 while an Eero Pro 6 is $230. 

Ring has come out with a new Car Alarm which plugs into your vehicle’s OBD port, letting it push alerts to your phone should your car detect a break-in. You can even hit a button on your phone to trigger a siren. Ring is also selling a dash camera. The Car Cam will let you monitor (and watch) for bumps and break-ins, with real-time alerts and footage, which sounds very similar to the Owlcam. It also has Emergency Crash Assist that will call emergency services when it detects an accident. Interestingly, you can also say “Alexa, I’m being pulled over” to instruct the camera to record an interaction. The Ring Car Alarm will cost $60, while the Car Cam and Car Connect (for Tesla vehicles) are both priced at $200.

The new Echo Show 10 now has a “smart follow” camera similar to Facebook’s Portal. It can kind of follow your movements in the room, thanks to a new audio “beamforming” technology as well as computer vision. The Echo Show 10 costs $250 and will be available soon.

The all-new Fire TV Stick has an enhanced processor, HDR compatibility plus Dolby Atmos. It also comes with the Alexa remote. It’ll be out later this year for $40. The Fire TV Stick Lite on the other hand is $29.99.

Amazon has also launched a new gaming streaming service called Luna as a competitor to xCloud and Stadia, and it comes with Twitch integration. It will support Fire TV, PC, Mac and iOS devices at first, with Android coming later. Amazon also built a low-latency Alexa-enabled Luna controller which will be available for $50 during early access. The gamepad will connect directly to the cloud.

Amazon also announced a new Ring camera that can actually fly around your home to offer multiple points of view. In addition to watching over your home, you can also use it to see if you left a window or door open. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to manually control it. Instead, it has to be programmed to fly in preordained flight paths, going from room to room. You’ll be able to view what’s going on via a live feed in the Ring app.

According to Amazon, its blades are shrouded and has collision-avoidance tech so that it can fly around tight spaces. In order to protect your privacy, Amazon says the drone is designed to hum loudly while in flight to let people know it’s filming. The camera is also obscured when docked in the base. It’ll cost $250 when it goes on sale in 2021.

Ring has also introduced a new Mailbox Sensor, which, well, attaches to your mailbox. The Mailbox Sensor will be available to pre-order on October 8th for $30.

Amazon CEO of Worldwide Consumer Dave Clark resigns

Dave Clark, CEO of Amazon’s worldwide consumer business and a top lieutenant of CEO Andy Jassy, will resign July 1, after 23 years at the company, Amazon announced in a regulatory filing Friday.

Clark is the latest member of Bezos’ former inner circle to exit the company. He joined Amazon’s operations division in 1999 and quickly rose through the ranks. He is credited with scaling Amazon’s fulfillment and logistics programs, which have become the backbone of its retail business.

Clark is one of a handful of the most important executives at Amazon, overseeing the company’s retail business, and a member of Jassy’s S-Team, a tight-knit group of over a dozen senior executives from almost all areas of Amazon’s business. He took over the role in 2020 after Jeff Wilke stepped down.

As CEO of Amazon’s worldwide consumer business, Clark oversees a number of key units, including online stores, physical stores, the marketplace of third-party sellers, and the Amazon Prime subscription business, all of which generated more than 75% of Amazon’s revenue in the quarter ended March 31.

 Amazon is closing 68 retail stores, ending Amazon Books, 4-star and Pop Up shops

Amazon is shutting down all its Amazon Books physical bookstores, as well as its Amazon 4-star and Amazon Pop Up shops, which sold a variety of electronics and other popular items.

The closures affect 68 stores across the U.S. and U.K. The dates for closures are not given yet and will vary by location. Amazon said it would help affected employees find roles elsewhere in the company.

Sales growth of the physical stores unit has noticeably lagged the company’s overall retail business. Physical stores, which includes Whole Foods and Fresh outlets, reported lower sales in 2021 than in 2018.

Amazon is trimming its physical retail business after coming off its slowest growth rate for any quarter since 2001. Shares are down more than 8% so far this year, and the stock was the worst performer in the Big Tech group last year.

The company also said that it would continue to focus on its Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market grocery chains, Amazon Go convenience stores, and to embrace the Just Walk Out cashierless technology.

Here you can watch my recent video review of Amazon Go Grocery Store, which was filmed in Seattle on its opening day:

Amazon Web Services, Alexa or Amazon Echo are down again!

On 31.January 2022, Amazon experienced another wave of technical outages following similar ones happening over the past month, affecting their marketplace platform, Amazon Web Services, Alexa or Amazon Echo.

AWS’s official Service Health Dashboard hasn’t acknowledged any issues yet, which can be confirmed on their official website: https://status.aws.amazon.com.

However, thousands of outraged users across the world complained and reported the matter to DownDetector, which confirmed that problems began at 8 PM EST:

For Amazon Sellers, it causes any orders confirmed as dispatched to remain in the unshipped status.

Additionally, even order IDs which were already successfully confirmed as dispatched hours ago are again popping up in the Unshipped section, with their tracking information removed. This is extremely confusing, especially for merchants processing thousands of sales, who are now struggling to distinguish between shipped and unshipped orders.

Sellers are also reporting that updates to stock are not taking place. This applies to inventory quantities and prices updated directly through the Seller Central or using third party inventory managers that consolidate sales from different marketplaces.
