This episode of Women Tech talk, Alicia and I go over the new calling features of the existing Amazon Echo devices as well as throw our opinions on the two new products Amazon has introduced to the market before Google or Apple had a chance to introduce any improvements or products during their conferences (Google I/O and Apples WWDC). Amazons new products are the Echo Look  a camera enabled device for fashion and the Echo Show that has a tablet size screen attached to it.   

We also put our two cents into the "Whole Foods" acquisition and what does it mean to the grocery market in the future. Whole Foods Market was acquired by Amazon June 16, 2017 at 13.7 billion dollars

On this episode Alicia as a member of Women who Code Atlanta, host a women's conference in Atlanta Georgia called We Rise Women in Tech Conference.  During this conference Alicia changes her interviews to the men who are speakers at the conferences and gets their view point about how they can help women and what are they are doing for women in tech.  This was a good opportunity to speak to a minority when women are the majority and men are the minority.

On todays Women tech talk, Alicia and I talk about the new features of Google assistant and Google home that she got to experience while she was at Google I/O.  This was a good effort Google showed better thanthe previous year and a good challenge to the other two major players in the assistant realm (Alexa, Siri) as well as the home automation market.  We not only have a google home now but we both downloaded the the google assistant on our Iphones as well.

This is the first time in a long time I can become a tech lover and not a follower of just Apple products.  Should be a very enlightening conversation from Apple fans.
