  2. Have you heard the one about the “splinternet”? It’s the idea that the internet could someday be split into different national or regional mini-internets.

  8. Facebook is working on its third virtual assistant.

    That Facebook would pursue a voice-based, artificially intelligent interface is hardly surprising.

  9. The smart speaker space is one of the most innovative and fast-moving in the industry. The sales figures are impressive, but very little of the market’s growth is driven by business users.
