Voice-activated devices have made our lives easier.

From the iPhone’s Siri to voice commands which are becoming standard in any new vehicle, these systems have allowed us to multi-task, while entertaining us and, at times, frustrate us.

If you’re an iPhone user, you know that if you ask Siri what zero divided by zero is, you get a pretty snarky response, which is always amusing no matter how many times you’ve heard it.

On the flip side, if you’ve ever tried to have your car’s voice recognition system make a phone call, it will usually give you either the wrong person you want to call, or ask you which “Mike” you want it to dial followed by prompts for Mike A, Mike B, or Michael C.

Amazon got into the voice-activation game in 2015 when it released its Echo device, commonly known as “Alexa.”

The biggest difference between Siri and Alexa is pretty obvious (and no, we’re not talking about the difference between Apple and Amazon): one is for your phone, while the other is for your home or office.

They are similar when it comes to being clever, however.
