Lenovo’s Smart Clock is the Google Assistant’s answer to the Echo Spot

Lenovo’s Smart Clock is the Google Assistant’s answer to the Echo Spot

Lenovo's Smart Clock is an adorably tiny display with Google Assistant

From a UI perspective the device can operate exactly as any Google Home speaker can, with voice control, including multi-cast speaker groups and access to the Google Assistant verbal smart home controls and routines. And to do that, Google is bringing Assistant to a slew of new products - the most promising and useful of which is the Lenovo Smart Clock. The Smart Clock has been created to adapt itself to its user's sleeping habits, so hopefully it won't turn on the lights at 3 am (unless you want it to) or play The Who's greatest hits at full blast while you're trying to catch forty winks. It doesn't need to display loads of data: ultimately it's a clock face (multiple faces are selectable), with various Google "cards" available to swipe through should you want to look at, say, the weather or open a music player. It does have a physical mute button and a USB port for charging a device (like your phone), and it has a 6W speaker built in for acceptable, but not exceptional audio. You know, all the things you probably actually use a Google Home or Echo product for.

Chandler Parsons, Grizzlies Agree To Part Ways
Parsons' troublesome left knee has been medically cleared for him to return to play since December 21. Since signing with the Grizzlies ahead of the 2016-17 season, Parsons has been riddled with injuries.

Now the cards seem limited to a few functions, time / clock, setting alarms, what's next on your Google Calendar, weather and commute updates. Lenovo covered the Smart Clock with a cloth shell that's thematically similar to the cloth base found on Google's own Google Home smart speaker. If you have events loaded into your calendar, Assistant will also take those into account and make suggestions about alarms you should set to make sure you're up with time to spare. Yo ucan also ask the Smark Clock to show you your NEST cameras, which is pretty handy.

Malaysia probes claim China offered to bail out 1MDB
Najib is said to have offered the Chinese leadership, also, that ships of war may, in the future, calling at two Malaysian ports. The WSJ reached out to the Chinese government information office for a comment on the story but has yet to receive an answer.

You'll be able to control aspects of the device on screen, but this UI isn't final.

Gonzalo HIGUAIN close to leaving AC Milan and joining Chelsea
England global Wilson has found the back of the net nine times in the Premier League this season and has registered five assists. It is also suggested that the arrival of Higuain will see the door firmly opened for Alvaro Morata to depart.

That said, it does seem to very good at those things, especially if you want to be eased into your day. Google and Lenovo both noted that this was likely due to the setting, a hotel full of disgusting wifi killing signals that often ruins demos like the one I saw. Hopefully, this is simply a hiccup of the location and the device being a demo unit and not a final product.
