Amazon acquiring Eero is a nice reminder of the risk of the technology players getting too big. It becomes extremely difficult for any small players to survive -- the limited set of 5 companies compete in every space. It's bad for innovation, everyone works towards acquisition.

Also, we should look out for the repeating sponsors on podcasts -- that looks to be the sure shot way to acquisition now. Many of the recent acquisitions have been a sponsors of some technology podcasts. I think advertising is no longer for the end customers.
