So, our next meeting is this month, August 16th. Same place, same time.  It was suggested we do a presentation on any of the Personal Assistant’s like Siri or Echo or Google’s Assistant or Cortana.
I don’t own any separate ones but I do have one on my phone (Google) and one on my Laptop (Cortana), so I can demonstrate those and show you videos from YouTube on the others. I figure if I already have a Smartphone and a Laptop, why would I need a separate Assistant, also there's Siri which is Apple and I don’t do Apple.
If Tom is there we can have him demonstrate Siri but I think there really isn’t any difference in them. They’re pretty much all the same. All though Google drives me crazy when it mispronounces names of places and I can’t get it to correctly pronounce them. I think I have to go through the same process that I did to get Google to let us say “Hey Google” instead of “Ok Google” which is better.

And as always, don't forget to bring in your requests on how to do something and if you bring in a new member they can ask any question on how to do something on a computer or maybe transfering files or photos from phones or tablets to computers or vice versa. Now is a great time for new members, anything they need to learn WE as a whole can teach them. That also goes for any of you. If you need help with anything, let us know. We'll see you all there Thursday night.
