Should you ask Alexa or Siri?

Both of these “helpful” voices and the devices that are required to use them are busily training me. Soon I may be able to turn on the lights without having to flip a switch. I may even be able to create a shopping list without using a pad and pencil. What will I do with all the free time that these features and others will create?

Those who have or contemplate getting either or both of these may find a quick reading of the links below to be helpful.

Amazon offers Alexa.

Apple offers Siri.

Some will recall the 1964 Japanese sci-fi movie that had Godzilla battle Mothra. There would prove to be only one winner in their epic battle.

It is likely there will be one winner in the battle between giants Amazon (Alexa) and Apple (Siri).         Until their battle is resolved, I have a suggestion. Ask my wife. She knows everything. Just ask her.
