People tend to be lazy. Really, i’d like to speak for myself. Im lazy. So it’s no wonder the reason why about this week’s bout of CTRL+T, I was drawn to some news items that touched in home assistants and personal assistants for when you’re out in the wild.

Amazon’s Echo Dot had been the top-selling product on every one of Amazon this holidays and startup Fin recently launched its human/Awe individual assistant.

Henry Pickavet, TC editorial manager and CTRL+T co-host, and I in addition explored the HQ Trivia trend. This past few days, HQ Trivia established its Android os software in Canada and opened up pre-registration for U.S.-based Android os users. HQ plans to introduce its Android os software in U.S. on January 1.

In the vein of getting individuals or AI to do things for you, I talked with Omni president and CEO Thomas McLeod about their on-demand storage and leasing startup. McLeod described Omni as an “operating system for things.”

Like, Omni will start building aside something where you could get services performed, like dry cleansing for your match, before Omni provides it to you from storage space. Down the road, McLeod envisions an ATM of sorts, for which you place a bike in storage in san francisco bay area then get access to a bike somewhere across the world.

“It’s more about having access to things rather than necessarily your things,” he said.
