"Amazon and smart home businesses launched more than a dozen new devices at an event on Wednesday. The company also shared an eye-popping statistic: There are now 85,000 devices that incorporate Amazon's digital assistant Alexa. You can buy twerking bears, Christmas trees, kitchen scales, light bulbs, and more that link back to Amazon's digital assistant. A year ago, you could buy about 4,000 such devices,"
