Amazon’s Alexa is moving into the mobile world. The voice assistant is coming to some Amazon Firetablets as a software update — and that includes the newly upgraded, shipping on September 21 for $89. It’s big news for Alexa’s growth, but voice assistant news won’t get me excited until they bring with Majel Barrett’s iconic voice.
Meanwhile, there’s news yet again in the Pokemon Go world. Soon you won’t need to pull out your phone to catch Pokemon in the wild. Thewireless device will arrive next week — the same day the iPhone 7 and new Apple Watch Series 2 lands. (September 16 is shaping up to be a good day for geeks.)Gamers looking to catch something bigger than Pokemon will likely be more interested in the newly announced console, a more powerful system arriving November 10 for $400. A slimmer version of the standard PS4 hits stores next week on September 15 for $300.
