Amazon Paid Voice Search

Amazon is planning to expand their platform to paid voice search. The launch of this new service has not been released. Amazon’s Echo and Dot AI services are a gateway to paid voice search and can be a fertile platform for marketers. So the next time your five-year-old asks Alexa something they may be receiving a paid advertisement for the latest Shopkins. (Source: Business Insider)

Resident Evil 7 Review

Resident Evil could bounce back from a horrific Resident Evil 6 game with their 7th installment of the series. The new game is a boon for the game series. The game takes place in a Louisiana Bayou, (how original for a horror zombie game) and revolves around Ethan who is in search for his wife. The Baker family is the new threat of the game, with minor scares happening as you get ready to fight the next battle. The game leaves no stone unturned as far as building up suspense comes. Finally, a good Resident Evil game you can look up to. Nintendo Switch will have to sit this one out. (Source: Mashable)
