I can’t help but feel like a super hero every time I summon my virtual personal assistant.
She doesn’t have a fancy name like Iron Man’s Jarvis but she’s well known.

It’s getting increasingly difficult finding a place for printers these days, now that digital documents and online transfers are becoming the norm across the globe.

We’re not used to seeing so many hardware announcements from Google at once, which made the major event earlier today all the more special.

Have you ever gone grocery shopping only to wonder if you still had a box of milk or a tub of butter left in the fridge?
