That's how Fridays should begin, relaxing before the day starts.

But I took the picture to point out the tablet in his back pocket. Made me feel better about the iPhone 6 Plus!

Advances in artificial intelligence and big data are being used to tackle some of the biggest problems of our modern times, but a startup out of New York..

Why Amazon Echo is the future of every home

Amazon surprised everyone Thursday by unceremoniously launching a product called Echo.

The Internet-connected hardware device provides support for Amazon's virtual assistant platform. That platform, called Alexa, works like Apple's Siri, Google Now or Microsoft's Cortana. You talk to Alexa using Echo's microphone. Alexa talks back through Echo's speakers. Alexa does things for you. It answers your questions.

There is no conceptual difference between Alexa and Siri, Google Now or Cortana.

Critics have pounced on Echo, saying that it's just a manipulative way for Amazon to make it easy for you to buy stuff. That criticism is as true as it is obvious, but it's also irrelevant. Both Amazon and consumers want buying stuff to be easier.

Other critics said that Echo is unnecessary because we already carry smartphones that can do the same thing. But here's where I completely part company with the critics. I believe Echo represents the future of human-machine interfaces better than Siri, Google Now or Cortana do.

Here's why:
