TechCrunch: Amazon acquires connected camera and doorbell startup Blink

TechCrunch: Amazon acquires connected camera and doorbell startup Blink. “Amazon has acquired Blink (via Slashgear), a startup founded in 2014 that builds connected Wi-Fi home security cameras, as well as a new video doorbell introduced earlier this week. The company got its start via a crowdfunding campaign that raised over $1 million for its totally wireless home monitoring system.” I’m mentioning this because it’s another way Amazon is positioning itself to go right up against Google.
