Are your culinary skills a little lacking? Do you think Siri, Cortana, or Amazon Echo are sexy? Well that last thing might be weird, but this week we delve into the science of cooking, how to step up your fitness training regimen, and get a special look at the Chevrolet Bolt’s shiny new technologies, on Pop Tech Radio.
Segment 1: Echo Power
Richard Chemel has been our Amazon Echo pioneer, but Gregg Stebben has taken a little longer to catch on. Gregg tells us about the power of voice-googling he experienced recently while writing his book.
Segment 2: New Amazon Stores?
Reports show that people are sexually harassing their Apple Siri, Amazon Echo, and Windows Cortanas, but more importantly, how do these companies know? Also, we chat with Richard Chemel about Amazon’s leaked plans to buy over 100 shopping hubs.
Segment 3: Error 53
Is Amazon doing some shady business? Also, what’s up with iPhone’s Error 53 message? Do we own software after we buy it? Richard Chemel sounds off.
