This week’s poll asked if you would you rather your virtual assistant be male, female, or gender neutral? We had a big vote and some fun answers! The answers told us that the big voice assistants need more options, even if female voices are the preference right now.

The issue at play is that the dominant voice assistants are by default, female. Siri, Google Assistant, Alexa, Cortana and Bixby all have a female AI voice out of the box. Each of these options also offers a range of voices, including male, and some celebrities, and some offer accented regional voices for British or Australian accents, and so on. (I use an Australian accented Google Assistant voice, and it’s now surprising...

You really don’t have to buy the latest and greatest smartphone, especially if you’re on a strict budget. These days, mid-range phones like the Moto G6 series, Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 Pro, and Nokia’s 2018 devices all have a lot to offer.
