Amazon Echo Look Announced – An Alexa powered smart camera to replace your mirror

Alexa has been a huge hit for Amazon so it is no surprise they want to expand their Alexa powered products further. What we didn’t expect was an Alexa-powered camera designed around taking your own fashion photos and videos. If you want to show off your daily wardrobe, you just have to ask the Look to take a snapshot — you don’t have to take a selfie in front of a mirror to get a full-length picture.

Google Home Review

Google Home has finally landed in the UK after being available in America for the last few months. Does this smart speaker live up to the hype, and more importantly can it compete with Alexa? As most of you will be aware, Google Home is a small speaker with built-in microphones that can detect audio cue to activate Google Assistant.
