Alexa for hotels lets guests order room service, control in-room smart devices [Updated]

Hotel rooms will serve as the newest homes for Amazon's Alexa starting this summer. Amazon announced a special version of its virtual assistant, Alexa for Hospitality, that will live across Echo devices placed in hotels, vacation rentals, and other similar locations.

Alexa in these devices will be able to do special things for both hospitality professionals and their customers. Amazon claims its Alexa for Hospitality experience will let hotel professionals "deepen engagement" through its voice controls that customers can use. Hotels can also customize some of the experience that they want their customers to have by choosing default music services, creating special Alexa Skills that only their guests can use, and monitor device online status and other connectivity issues.

Guests staying in a room with an Echo device will likely find the experience either convenient or invasive. Guests can ask Alexa to do things like order room service, answer questions about hotel services, control some in-room connected devices like lights and blinds, and more. Alexa Skills will also be available, so guests can use a Skill such as Flight Tracker to check the status of their flight before checking out.

Tesla CEO: New “tent” assembly line is “way better” than conventional factory

FREMONT, Calif.—Tesla’s new tented facility isn’t just a new temporary "assembly line" but is seemingly the first phase of an entirely new building, dubbed "Factory 2.0."

On June 16, CEO Elon Musk publicly announced a "new general assembly line" made with "minimal resources." However, a January 2018 geotechnical investigation report newly on file with the city building permit office notes that Tesla has plans to build a 500,000 square foot "multi story building north of the existing North Paint Building."

Amazing work by Tesla team. Built entire new general assembly line in 3 weeks w minimal resources. Love u guys so much! Pic of 1st Model 3 dual motor performance coming off the line …

— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 16, 2018

The tent is easily visible from the nearby Warm Springs BART station platform. When Ars visited on Monday afternoon, there appeared to be cranes and forklifts moving around the site. We could not easily see inside the long white temporary structure, but there did not appear to be any newly completed vehicles rolling off the lines in the adjacent parking lot.

Senate rejects Trump’s plan to lift ZTE export ban

The US Senate on Monday voted to block implementation of a settlement that would lift a sweeping ban on US technology being exported to ZTE. The export ban, which the Trump administration imposed on ZTE in April, amounts to a de facto death sentence for the Chinese company, which is heavily dependent on American-made chips and software.

The Trump administration recently signed a deal that would lift the export ban in exchange for a $1 billion fine and the firing of all of ZTE's senior leadership. But a bipartisan group of senators believes the deal was too lenient.

"The death penalty is an appropriate punishment for their behavior," said Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) in an interview with The Wall Street Journal last week.
