Re: Smart speakers
200% in agreement with you. I am a strong believer of progressive growth. That gives an opportunity for anyone to really understand what's going on and how they got to where they are. This step could bed totally missing lately.

Re: Smart speakers
I checked her out. It seems like her music content is highly sexual oriented in images, language, and body language. She was a stripper before a rapper saw one of her videos on Instagram and called her. So that's how she jumped into fame so quickly. She seems to have merged stripping and rapping and that's what she is all about.

Re: Smart speakers
I should have a look on YouTube. Rappers are not my thing and for what you say, she and her music sound vulgar to me, which is another thing that I dislike. Of course not appropriate for 9-year-olds. I wonder how she skyrocketed to fame. Or maybe not a surprise.

Re: Smart speakers
Thanks. Not fame outside the U.S., it seems. Whenever I hear about those meteoric rises to fame I can't help but thinking in all those giants of music who had to make a great effort to finally rise to fame. But these new starts may also fall as fast as they reached the top with zero to no effort.

Re: Smart speakers
It's country marketing. If you don't know what's going on out of your box you always think that your box is the best in the world, because it's the only one you know it exists. The same with research and surveys. If you ignore half of the world in your survey and research your results will only show those countries you included in the survey or reserach. 

Samsung's Smart Home is only available in South Korea. They make it available only in Asia first. This means that the market is going to have more smart speakers and other smart home features in that region, not in the U.S.. Samsun's Bixby is very cool as well as the whole Samsung Smart Home.

Re: Smart speakers
They probably convinced their parents to get one smart speaker after your son's birthday party last year. :D What is Cardi B?

The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.

The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.

In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.

Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
