In addition to their Sling Box and their 2014 breakthrough, no-contract live-streaming cable service, SlingTV, Dish decided to take another leap forward in delivering television entertainment to their consumers — support for Amazon‘s Alexa Voice Services or AVS.

Review: Google Home – Not The Droid You’re Looking For… Yet
DwayneD   |  @   |  

Google Home

Google Home is a little device that plugs into the wall and responds to your voice. It can play recorded music or the radio through services like Google Play Music and TuneIn, and it can respond to questions based on the knowledge Google has amassed throughout the 21st century. If you’ve got the correct hardware at home, like a Nest Thermostat, Samsung’s Smartthings, or Philips hue, Google Home can allow you to control some of your home’s functions with your voice.

We’ve had some time to get to know the Google Home and there are a LOT of things to like about it. Its voice recognition is robust and its audio is impressive for being a little tiny speaker. At the same time, when one looks at Google Home through the lens of a smarthome, AI, product, one quickly realizes that the device is not quite where the demonstrations were during the 2016 Google IO developers conference, nor is it a device that delivers on the promise of its advertisements.

The Movie God   |  @   |  

Aliens Lens Comes To Snapchat

This year movie fans around the world celebrate the 30th anniversary of director James Cameron’s blockbuster sequel, Aliens. The movie is the follow-up to Ridley Scott’s classic 1979 original, Alien, and was released in July of 1986. Costing a little under $20 million to make, it would go on to bring in over $131 million worldwide at the box office.

To help celebrate the anniversary, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has launched a special Aliens lens for Snapchat users to enjoy. With it, you can turn yourself into a feared Xenomorph, or you can even get your very own facehugger to latch on to your skull. Adorable little guys, really. Misunderstood.
