Introduce Amazon Echo into the mix, and saying something as simple as, ‘Alexa, turn on the Kitchen lights’ makes controlling your devices even easier. Lenovo has created Smart Assistant which can accomplish the same tasks as Echo but at a lower price point.
Let me remove my hat. Now, venerable priest, further into the light, and hold the Holy Book before me that I may touch it. So help me Heaven, and on my honour the story I have...
