    While I'm surprised Amazon isn't on top, I'm not sure how hard coded keywords for "skills" (specifically talking Alexa here) can in any way be called "AI".

    I think this is just because Amazon sold them SO aggressively through the holidays that probably anyone remotely thinking of buying one in the near term already did it. I know I did. That said, I would like to get a Google Home and see how it compares. I have had a few things with Echo that I'd like to see how they work with Google. As for Siri, I can't see anyone but die hard Apple fans buying them.
