A recent update has been added to the popular Google Assistant. It now has the amazing ability to tell up to six different voices apart from each other. This works due to an advanced system of neural networks located directly on the device. If you own a Google Assistant, update it and then go to the hub and add a user. All it needs is a few key words and phrases to be repeated. This feature allows custom schedules for each user and different music choices. Unlike Amazon’s Alexa where you have to manually switch users, The Google Home Assistant is able to do it automatically! Overall, if you are looking for a slight time saver and more personal experience. If you already own a Google Assistant and would like some detailed steps to enable multi-user support click here.
Amazon’s Echo has sold nearly 11 million units as of the release up until The end of January. Every product has their quirks with speech recognition, however this one is a bit odd… Videos have been surfacing all around the web where people have been asking Alexa (the echos speech assistant manager) some rather interesting questions. For example, some one asks the echo, “Alexa, are you recording this conversation?” Then it responds with nothing and turns off. You can ask Alexa just about anything and she will answer. You can also ask, “Alexa, are you sending this conversation to the NSA,” and it will respond the same way by shutting off. If you have any viewpoint on this topic please leave a comment.

So far, AMD has released their Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 processors to the public with great success. Not only do they out-perform the former Intel i5 and Intel i7 competitors, but they are even cheaper!
