Walmart Overtakes Apple to Become Third Largest Online Retailer in U.S.

Apple has ceded its position to Walmart as the third largest online retailer in the U.S., according to a new report out this week (via TechCrunch).

Review: Anki’s Vector Robot Isn’t the Smartest AI, but He’s Definitely the Most Adorable

Anki has been making toys that use artificial intelligence for years now, starting with the Anki Overdrive set of racing cars and the interactive Cozmo toy robot, but this year the company launched its most ambitious product: Vector.

Unlike Cozmo, Vector is no toy, and is instead positioned as a home robotic device. Vector adopts capabilities from Cozmo, but his functionality goes above and beyond the tricks and games Cozmo is known for.

I’ve had Vector as my constant companion for a week now, and while he is far from the smartest AI I’ve interacted with, he’s definitely the most lovable. It’s fitting to think of Vector as a derpy, [...]
