Since we are the topic of Pokémon, we thought you may like know a couple of new developments. The first is Pokémon Pikachu Talk Skill for Amazon Alexa and Google Home where you can “converse ‘live’” with Pikachu. Instead of the usual Alexa or Google Home voice, whatever you ask or commands your Amazon Alexa or Google Home device will be reciprocated with Pikachu classic lines like “Pika?”, “Pika, Pika!”, and “Pikaaaa.” I guess you could say Pikachu Talk Skill for Alexa and Google Home is the closest experience you will get to having an actual Pokémon creature.

It’s Official. Google Is Pulling The Plug On Google Plus

You know how doctors sometimes have to amputate patients’ limb(s) because an infection have gotten out of hand? Well, that’s what happening to Google Plus (Google+). Google’s very own social network that was meant to go head-to-head with Facebook is officially being “amputated.” It will cease to exist starting August 31, 2019. Rest in peace, Google Plus. You were as good as it lasts… if there was any good to begin with. I still recall how Google Plus was forced into blogs and websites like us, as with YouTube users. Having something you didn’t want pushed into your face was, obviously, a happy experience. TBH, I am glad it is finally over for good. Continue reading It’s Official. Google Is Pulling The Plug On Google Plus

Privacy, among other things, is Google promised to look out for your “digital well-being.” Continue reading Google Pixel 3 Announced Along With Google Slate And Google Home Hub

It Is Not A Big Deal Promoting Android Phones With An iPhone. Maybe?

When I saw this ‘news’, I immediately knew I have to say something. The ‘news’ was how YouTube gadget reviewer Marques Brownlee (AKAMKBHD) ‘exposed’ Indian celebrity Anushka Sharma promoting Google Pixel on Twitter and seemingly posted it to the micro blogging platform with an iPhone.
