Thoughts on Anger over Amazon buying Eero
Amazon, as I'm sure you know, is the biggest online retailer in the world, run by the richest person in the world. It's also the leader in cloud computing with Amazon Web Services (AWS), and home-based digital assistants with Echo and Alexa.
Eero, as you may or may not know, is a mesh router system made by former Apple engineers. It's super simple to set up and use and has a companion subscription service that offers all sorts of extras like content blocking and malware protection.
And, you just now might have heard that Amazon, the massive online retailer, and cloud and assistant power, is buying the scrappy young eero router. From Business Wire:
"We are incredibly impressed with the eero team and how quickly they invented a WiFi solution that makes connected devices just work," said Dave Limp, SVP of Amazon Devices and Services. "We have a shared vision that the smart home experience can get even easier, and we're committed to continue innovating on behalf of customers."
