HP Unveils Envy, The All-In-One PC With Built-In Alexa

HP’s Envy Curved desktop will come with Amazon’s Alexa voice-command technology built in.

I think it’s time to admit that smart assistants are here to stay. Alexa, Amazon’s creation, is definitely one that would become a staple in a lot of homes. And now, HP just unveiled a desktop PC with Amazon Alexa preinstalled.

Users can use this to call up the assistant and see any information to be displayed. Updates and info like weather forecasts or the album art of any music are such examples. Do take note that there is no mute button on the HP. Which means, there is no quick way to turn the assistant on and off other than going to the app.

Part of the Envy portfolio, the Envy Curved AiO 34 is an an all-in-one computer that features with a 34-inch curved screen. It is built with the new HP Command Centre which allows users to optimise the system performance and control the fan noise. Users can also control its temperature with CoolSense technology.

Other features that make this PC premium include embedded Bang and Olufsen speakers and dark ash wood grain finish.

As to the specs, it comes with an option to add the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 discrete graphics. It comes with a built-in charger on its base an a pop up camera for added privacy.

The AiO 34 will be available later this year. No word yet as to how much this premium PC will cost but expect it to be at the high $1000 mark.

Other products included in the Envy portfolio are the Envy 13 laptop, Envy x360 13, Envy x360 15, Envy Desktop and Envy 17 Laptop.

Google Home : Some Funny Commands That You Could Try

Try Google Home’s Funny Commands

Funny commands may be given to your Google Home. Let us talk about some of them

About the Device

Google Home is a device used at home if you want to know the latest news, or updates on weather, and more. But if you want to show it off to your guests, I do not think they would want to hear about those stuffs. You can give funny commands to it in order for you to entertain your guests.

Fun Things You Can Ask Your Google Home

You can ask your device to entertain you. Commands like “Okay Google, I’m bored”, “Okay Google, let’s party”, or “Okay Google, tell me a joke” will get funny answers from your Google voice assistant. Repeating the commands will get a variety of answers.

You can also let it tell you stories. Just say “Okay Google, tell me a story”. And story-telling it is. Current events and facts may also be asked on your device.

Other Commands

Other commands which can entertain you and your guests, if you have some, are available. Your Google Home can sing, rap, beatbox, or even impress you with general knowledge and words of wisdom. The only thing that your device cannot do is dance.

It can do all that you command it to do. That is, only if you give commands which are found on your Google Home’s program. Naturally it will not do commands which it cannot follow.

Basically, the device can provide your “party” and get-togethers with total entertainment, except dancing, of course. But you can command it to play music of your choice and you can do the dancing.

Your Google Home can be a stand-up comedian. As it can tell jokes when given the command. All these entertainment package can be found on it. And what is good about this is it’s free. No charges, no talent fees.

So make the most out of your Google Home. Do not stick to conventional commands. Try giving it commands to perk up your life and have more fun.
