Google Nest Hub Max Packs So Many Tech That It May Give You The Creep

This is Nest Hub Max, the first product from Google’s newly-formed team, Google Nest. It is a smart hub that does pretty much JBL LINK View and Amazon Echo Show does and then some. It packs so many tech in it, that it might give you the creep. Or at least, that’s how I felt. But it could be just me being paranoid. It is a digital photo frame powered by Google Photos, it is a home view dashboard that gives an overview of your connected devices and grant you control over them, it is a life organizer, a communicator and an eye on your home when you are away.
