AutoSlash's first and foremost passion will always be saving people money on rental car rates, but we'll admit to being fans of futurism, too. We're still waiting for fusion-powered cars (though if company founder Jonathan wants to get us all self-driving Teslas, we'll consider that an acceptable substitute), but in the meantime, we're fans of as much Treknology as we can get our hands on.
And there isn't anything more Star Trek than talking to a computer. Fortunately, we don't have to wait another 300 years for that to happen—as we pointed out last month, Amazon's Echo has very much made that an everyday reality now.
One thing we didn't cover last month was Google's answer to Amazon. Thanks to great holiday sales, I was able to pick up both devices—an Amazon Echo and a Google Home—at a great price, and I've really put them through their paces over the past month so I could share my perspective here.
