While watching the World Series not long ago, the McGee family had a fun discussion about Dodgers Stadium. That’s the stadium my wife went to regularly as a kid growing up in the Los Angeles area, and I’ve been there a handful of times for baseball games, concerts, etc.
In the process of discussing how beautiful the stadium remains, we all wondered how old it is. I was very pleasantly surprised when our Amazon Echo was able to answer the question — those kinds of facts are allegedly more of a strength for Google, and a weakness for Amazon.
But it turns out that Google has no clue how to answer this question, while Echo nails it.
Remember, next time you hear talk about how dumb Echo is and smart Google Home is … there are plenty of exceptions.
