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.   https://www.imore.com/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. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mothra_vs._Godzilla

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.
