Back to the future: Google’s vision for Toronto is straight out of the 19th century

Even if the negotiations fall apart thanks to Google’s demands or the city’s recalcitrance, there’s still good news: the most important parts of Sidewalk’s plans, the parts that would most determine whether the city’s eastern waterfront becomes a livable, green place that could accommodate Toronto’s burgeoning growth, don’t require Google’s impressive piles of money at all. The city could do it on its own — if it actually wants to.

Nice to see better sound and a built-in hub in the normal Echo (now Echo Plus, but looks the same as the original Echo). The alarm clock Echo looks cool too. But WTF is going on with Game Show Buzzer Echo? Amazon is hilarious. Relentless and sometimes visionary, but all over the place. Like they say yes to everything.
