Sources tell TechCrunch that Google is working on a home assistant with a touch screen, like the Amazon Show. This would explain why they cut off Amazon's access to YouTube this week.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that it has signed a contract to bring the world’s largest lithium ion battery to South Australia with a 100-day deadline, lest the battery be completely free.
