The Academy Awards will go down at end of February, likely providing us with a gorgeous collection of red carpet gowns, plenty of PDA-friendly couples, and some truly spectacular moments. It will be the 89th iteration of the annual award show, and although they’re sure to be great, we have a feeling it’ll be hard to top what happened at the Oscars 20 years ago.

But I think there was something else at play. Looking back at the opening keynote, CEO Sundar Pichai decided to kick things off with two interesting — and related — products: the so-called “assistant” that seeks to proactively offer help as you navigate Google’s many services, and Home, an Amazon Echo-like speaker that infuses the assistant in your house as a kind of ambient presence, ready to help the moment you utter the activation phrase (“OK, Google,” of course).
