Episode 1 Season 2: Alexa, can you hear me?

Alexa Voice Commands

In this Episode:

Alexa lands at Roy’s house and they mostly get along. Adventures in Voice Assistants (Siri, Alexa, Google Now, Google Home), Virtual Assistants, and trying to get them to tell you what you really want to hear or know. Plus we learn Amazon’s Alexa makes a great DJ if you are in the mood for Heavy Metal Christmas, Heavy Metal Classical Music, or the Chris Tomlin station. Actually you find she is really good at all things music. Quite fun there. Be sure to listen to the end for the “Moment of Zen”.

In this episode:

he-one-off-technology-podcast-aroyrichardson Christmas Episode Season 1 Finale

We talk about the Technology we are thankful for and our Christmas wishlists.

Chuck is in town and in the studio. Normally Chuck and I record over a Skype session but Chuck was in town and we decided to do something special by recording the episode live and in person together. We hope you get a kick out of the things we are thankful for. It is a long list.  It is an amazing episode. We hope you enjoy!

Caution: this episode is sarcasm and snark heavy but well worth the trouble. Also listen for the dog bark.
