Samsung Smart Fridge Harmonizes With Amazon Echo’s Alexa
Um, well – apparently that headline is wrong, as was the Amazon reference in a similar report I wrote for Techlicious (“Samsung’s New Refrigerator Is Also a Giant Tablet“).
Samsung told a group of reporters it had invited to a pre-CES pre-brief that its smart fridge would include Amazon’s Echo. But then at CES, Samsung told reporters it WOULDN’T include Amazon Echo compatibility. Samsung could have told us before my and other stories from other reporters were published, and every reporter who published this erroneous Amazon aspect was pretty pissed off.
