For some tasks, like when I asked for Book Store directions, Alexa directed me to the Alexa app on my phone, which opened Apple Maps. Instead, Book Store it defaults to the Maps app, Free Novels which gave voice directions over Bluetooth the same way it would with any headphones. Alexa didn't even handle the turn-by-turn navigation. I also couldn't change the default mapping option to Google Maps on iOS. At that point, it was no different than just grabbing my phone.

Apple isn't being completely altruistic, as the move is part of a settlement with the Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTP), applying to apps that 'do not offer in-app digital goods and services for purchase'.

However, Apple will still take a cut of any money made from sales within the app - so if Netflix offers a way to subscribe in-app, they will pay Apple a cut, but this will offer an alternative, that includes access to existing payment details.

Unlike the Apple solution, which is just a simple in-app link to the service providers website, cutting Apple out of the process, Google will still get a cut even if a customer opts to user an alternative billing system.

In late March, the United Nation's International Telecommunication Union remarked that "once considered a luxury, internet connectivity became crucial for many during the COVID-19 pandemic as populations faced stay-at-home orders and many practices move

Whether the political crisis will kindle armed conflict remains unclear, but it leaves Libya without a unified government, with the main political and military forces bitterly divided and with no clear path forward.

This smart speaker saves space by conveniently plugging straight into the wall. The Amazon Echo Flex, which is now on sale with 60 per cent off, is one of the most affordable ways to get Amazon's Alexa in more places throughout your home.

Because the glasses I received didn't have prescription lenses, I wore mine with my contact lenses and it worked out fine. After initially launching without them, late last year Bose added the ability to purchase or update its Frames with prescription lenses in the US. But the Echo Frames can be fitted with prescription lenses, with Amazon publishing a little guide (PDF) for you to take to a local optician. Amazon gets points here as some other audio-focused smart glasses, such as Bose's $200 Frames Alto and Rondo sunglasses, haven't always made this as easy.

With a neat and compact 5.5-inch touch screen display, the Echo Show 5 helps you manage your day, watch videos and connect with friends and family. It has Alexa built-in and is perfectly sized for a bedside table or kitchen countertop. 

The United Nations backed a ceasefire and peace process after an eastern offensive against Tripoli collapsed in 2020, with most sides in Libya publicly supporting Dbeibah's interim unity government and scheduling elections for December 2021.

After the election was canceled shortly before the vote was due to take place amid disputes over the rules, the parliament moved to seize control of the political process and replace Dbeibah's government.

Granted, it is nice to ask out loud if it's going to rain when seeing ominous clouds, and then instantaneously get an answer. In general, unless you're a big Alexa user, I'm not convinced that the smart assistant does enough to justify buying the Frames.  Alexa does a good job of calling my contacts too (though it isn't able to send an iMessage, initiate a video call or connect to WhatsApp). I also like being able to ask about any random piece of information (a sports score, say) without having to take out my phone.

Lawmakers' declaration of Fathi Bashagha as prime minister after a televised vote aggravates a power struggle with the interim administration of Abdulhamid al-Dbeibah, who was installed through a U.N.-backed process last year.

When connected to an iPhone or Android phone over Bluetooth, it can make audio calls, play music, set timers and answer questions (such as "What's the weather?"). The Echo Frames also take advantage of Alexa's skills and smart device controls, so it can turn on compatible smart lights or a TV. 

But the bandwidth marketing specialist, who asked to remain anonymous, also noted that low-orbiting spacecraft are far more vulnerable than geostationary ones, as demonstrated by the recent loss of dozens of Starlinks after a magne

But because these services use satellites at geostationary orbit -- more than 35,000 kilometers (22,000 miles) from Earth's surface -- their speed cannot match that of fiber, prohibiting use for high-speed tasks li

The sunglasses can be purchased or updated with prescription lenses in the US. 26: An earlier version of the story incorrectly said that Bose's Frames were not available with a prescription.
