Amazon's Alexa will soon speak with emotion. A new developer's tool will let the voice assistant sound excited or disappointed, and even includes varying levels of intensity. Amazon hopes this feature will create a "natural and intuitive experience."
Facebook unexpectedly took time off for Thanksgiving. The social media service went dark during the busy holiday season due to what it said was an issue in a “central software system.” Facebook has since restored service.
