Google Duplex Getting Closer to Release

Image
It seems Google is getting closer to a general release for Duplex. If you're unfamiliar it is a service that leverages the Google Assistant to do things like make reservations. Google talked in depth about Duplex during I/O '18 , however, due to some worries over malicious intentions Google has been slow to roll it out. Back in December Google announced Duplex would be available in select markets and only on Pixel 3 devices.

I was actually able to try Duplex in December, I made a booking at a restaurant in Chicago for a friend and his girlfriend.

Sure, it might take 5 years to recover the cost difference in my utilities, but when I have the cash-flow now I view it as an investment into my future self being potentially more tight on money. A couple bucks a month can really help when/if you're paycheck to paycheck. As a serial entrepreneur I know to budget so far in advance (2-3 months for my big ticket items). However, $25 lower electric bill, $10 lower water bill, etc can add up if you are in a project drought.
Why I chose Nest Thermostat E
This was a 2 factor decision; first and foremost I am a very frugal person. I pay attention to my daily utility usages where I have the ability to do so, like my Electric bill which updates daily on their partner app. I use t…
