'A lot of retailers struggled with their online offering and that worked against them, you typically find that a retailer that has a strong online offering has managed to hang in there- and they feed off each other to some degree,' he said.
The fix: A good assistant should know where I am -- wherever I am -- and behave accordingly, so until Google implements full-blown location-based triggers I'm furtively using the Alexa app on my devices or not, you can on your Android phone or iPhone.
The singer, who had been due to mark his milestone with concerts for 20,000 fans, pulled a face as he stuck up six fingers in a birthday video - in a clear reference to the ‘rule of six' Covid restriction.
The fix: I hate to lean on Alexa again, but this works about as well (and for as little money) as anything: I picked up a couple of older second-gen Echo Dots ($40 at Amazon) from Amazon Warehouse Deals, which I plugged into two sets of high-quality speakers. From there, it's a breeze to connect your Google Home to the Echo Dot with Bluetooth.
'This is a small scale trial, crime can be a flashpoint for violence, abuse and anti-social behaviour towards frontline shopworkers that continues to rise and, which affects all retailers - Co-op invests in the latest technologies* to deter this unacceptable behaviour.'
I was thrilled seeing what this software could do and I decided that I should not break my head with any other software going forward - this DJ Audio Editor was a beauty to say the least. I had Windows 7 on my PC and it worked well and I realized it works for Windows 8 and XP.
This stands out from all the other similar software out there in the market because it is just simple to use. The others are just so cumbersome, that you have to be technically adept and then if you see this is child's play - I just had to open, make the changes that I needed to make and then just save i
Just open the Google Home app and tap Settings >Device settings >Default music player >Enable pairing mode. From there, pair your Google speaker with your Amazon speaker to enjoy hi-fidelity sound from your stereo speakers.
The other beauty of the DJ Audio Editor that I must mention is the visual wave format that you can see when you are making your changes - I am sure you know why this is so useful, but then I am so overwhelmed that I would want to add that I knew what I am changing right when I was making it, so it was like instant notifications - and this meant that I didn't have to revisit this audio file, run it out fully and then make any corrections or change
Update: Google appears to have caught on to some of these alternative pronunciations, specifically the one invoking an original ingredient of Coca-Cola. This is especially apparent when using them with a Google Home smart display like a Nest Hub, which lets you know it's listening with an onscreen animation. Basically, it hears you and wakes up to listen, but then promptly ignores whatever command you issue if you use some of these alternatives.

'It's doom and gloom if you're in that traditional commoditised market if it's all price driven, down down down. If you're playing in the market you better have the cheapest price or you have real strife,' she said.
The problem: You can set up a Google Home Routine to do just about anything, and for awhile the only way to trigger it was with a voice command. Then, finally, Google added home and away routines. Problem is there's only one home routine and one away routine, and that's the extent of location triggers. location triggers for pretty much any coordinates on the globe. So when you leave work, for example, or arrive at school, you can have Alexa execute a sequence of commands like adjusting your thermostat or turning on the lights.
'We are pleased to deliver positive sales and strong earnings growth in the first half of FY20, with sales improving throughout the half and culminating in a strong Christmas quarter,' he said in a note to the ASX.
No matter what type your hi-end audio file is - whether it is MP3, MP2, WAV or anything else the DJ Audio Editor can read it. See most of the other editors that you see today are very restrictive about the format that it can read and process.
Not with this Audio Editor - it could read my file, then let me make some editing and then it let me save it in any type I choose - this was like having the cake and eating it to
The fix: Even though Google won't let you choose a different wake word, you can manipulate Google Home's imperfect ear by using similar-sounding words to summon Google Assistant. "Hey, Boo Boo" remains my go-to, but I've also used "OK, Frugal," "Egg Noodle," "Go Lay Doo-Doo" and my all-time favorite: "Cocaine Poodle."
