Nocturnal Animals

A successful Los Angeles art-gallery owner's idyllic life is marred by the constant traveling of her handsome second husband. While he is away, she is shaken by the arrival of a manuscript written by her first husband, who she has not seen in years. The manuscript tells the story of a teacher who finds a trip with his family turning into a nightmare. As Susan reads the book, it forces her to examine her past and confront some dark truths.

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.

In 1951, cancerous cells from Henrietta Lacks lead to breakthroughs that change the face of medicine forever. Aided by writer Rebecca Skloot, Deborah Lacks embarks on a quest to learn about the mother she never knew.

Alicia and I reviewed this HBO movie produced by Oprah Winfrey because we read the book     The immortal life of Henrietta Lacks a few years ago and really felt that this was an important message about a remarkable African American woman that effected science forever. So we wanted to see if the movie would give the family and book justice.

For an out of the ordinary review, We decided on a new TV series on Starz to review.  The critically acclaimed novel "American Gods" created by Neil Gaiman comes to TV.  I mentioned this series to Alicia early last year because we both are big fans of Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies).  And this show has all the creative flair of the two of them in such different ways.  Check it out, it is partially complex but both horror and entertaining at the same time.   Here's the series summary.  Enjoy!!

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.
