My thoughts tend to go to dark places these days. And so when I watched Google on Wednesday trot out one after another of its homegrown computing devices for every task and every nook of our homes, I went straight to dystopia: R.I.P. digital competition.

Nothing to add.

I think the article is a bit more specific (and I found compelling) than what others have mentioned...

It's about voice-activated devices.

Because you won't browse for apps to launch, the services you use will probably be the default ones.

E.g. on a Google device it'll be Google's search, music, video, etc., with less opportunity for third-parties to get in on it.

The article gives the example that you aren't likely to say "Play song on Spotify."

I dunno. I thought it's new and interesting.
