• Eero is a great product. I’m glad to see their success and hope this means more people take the leap and create mesh networks at home. It does wonders for your connection. • One of my only gadgets made by an independent company is now part of Big Tech. Ugh. Sonos is the last one standing! • Web browsing data is even more valuable than shopping data. Will Amazon use it? • I’m curious if Amazon plans to integrate the gadget companies it has acquired. Amazon bought Ring and kept it as an independent brand, but also makes the same kinds of products, like smart cameras and doorbells, under the Amazon brand. Will the same be true for Eero? I guess Amazon has never worried much about messiness.

This is the same guy who said the NFL is “ruining the game” by penalizing unsafe tackles. He doesn’t want his son getting hurt but is happy to watch others get hurt.

Wow. Given the already-tense relationship between Apple and Facebook, it will be very interesting to see how Apple responds to this. It could just give a slap on the wrist; revoke Facebook's ability to issue employee-only apps; or deploy the nuclear option and ban Facebook from the App Store. That last option seems unlikely, but not out of the realm of possibility.
