Amazon's (+0.93%) smart assistant Alexa is about to do more than play your favorite shower tunes. Amazon just announced a whole new suite of Alexa-enabled Echo products to further suck you into its ecosystem. Here are some highlights:

For your music...

There's a new $49.99 Echo Dot (the "best selling speaker ever," says Amazon) that'll be 70%

.

For your leftovers...

There's the AmazonBasics Microwave for $59.99. Responding to voice commands, it'll work with any nearby Echo device...although it took more than one try for the ABM to successfully cook a potato on-stage at Amazon's event.

For your car...

There's the Echo Auto, complete with a new Amazon OS. It'll also have location services so Echo Auto can, for example, turn on the lights when you're near your home.

Other new launches: Alexa smart plug ($25), Echo wall clock ($30), Alexa Guard security device, Fire TV Recast ($229),

I think Amazon OS is the real surprise announcement here...

How long until we see iPhone rivals for sale at much cheaper prices than Apple's pricey devices that never seem to improve other than resolution and size?

Siri is like a toaster compared to Alexa.

I wonder if this iPhone 6 will be my last Apple product now?

      An Amazon Alexa speaker recorded a user’s conversation inside their home and sent it on to one of their stored contacts, reports The Wall Street Journal. Amazon confirmed the incident and said the device mistook a conversation for commands. The episode “raises questions about the security of such voice-operated devices,” per the Journal.

      Coming soon to an office near you: Alexa for Business. Amazon’s virtual assistant is entering the workplace as a new tool for booking conference rooms, launching meetings, and maybe eventually getting your coffee order right.
      A leader in the voice-recognition field with the Echo, Amazon’s making professional waves— Hello guest!

      The effort to bring Alexa to work comes as the service is flanked by competitors Google, Siri, and Microsoft’s Cortana. But that shouldn’t hamper growth too much. Alexa device usage could reach 128 million by 2020.
      It’s still up in the air whether companies will be comfortable having a smart-speaker listening in on sensitive conversations, but Amazon insists nothing is sent to the cloud until a user says “Alexa.”
      “Alexa, please don’t share our company secrets.”
