You can now hear Samuel L. Jackson’s voice on your Amazon Echo




Amazon has a habit of making celebrity voices such as singers or actors available in its Alexa smart column, to vary from the standard voice. The most recent addition is Samuel L. Jackson, whose “voice” can be added to the column catalog by 99 cents. All in English only is clear.

This way, Amazon Alexa users can now have Jackson’s voice answering music requests, weather status and all sorts of questions. Just ask Alexa to introduce you to Samuel L. Jackson or buy your voice manually.

Samuel L. Jackson’s voice has been recreated with technology

Instead of recording a ton of pre-made sentences, Amazon used a neural network that converts text to voice. Of course, the actor had to spend hours in the studio recording audio to create a sound base. However, the end result is a kind of deepfake vocal.

Comedy video “predicted” the actor’s voice on Alexa

In 2017, the comedy YouTube channel 80 gumdrops has released a video about a family that just bought an Amazon Alexa. The funniest part is that the column comes with the voice of Samuel L. Jackson by definition. During the video are played several sentences of his most iconic movies, complete with profanity and all.

Alexa will have an option “uncensored”

Samuel L. Jackson is known for his characteristic voice and a great use of profanity in his roles. As such, Amazon includes an unfiltered version of the voice, where the answers will be much more explicit. This option can be enabled or disabled in Alexa settings.


Attention! Bug on Android is frustrating users using PIN code




Last September, some Pixel users who use the PIN code to unlock their Android could not sign in to their device. Two months later, it seems that this bug has not been fixed and is now affecting third-party smartphones.

There are users of smartphones from Sony and OnePlus who are starting to complain about the same problem. This bug is apparently affecting models running Android 9 or Android 10.

Users cannot access your smartphone by its PIN code

The bug in question occurs when users try to use your PIN code to enter your smartphone. After validating your code, the smartphone screen turns off and then back on the lock screen, as if nothing had happened.

That is, if you have no other method of authentication enabled or available, you will be unable to access your device. A scenario that can be problematic for those who really need to use their smartphone.

Problem will stem from a process of validating your password

Recent Discoveries maintain that the cause of this bug is a method called “Synthetic Password Key”. In short, this method compares the code you entered as stored in the system.

It appears that this procedure is not being completed, returning a null value. It is this null value that is causing Android to crash.

As far as we know, this problem is not widely dispersed in the market, affecting a small group of users. Even so, it is important to alert you to using various smartphone unlocking methods whenever possible.

Google has said that it is aware of the issue and has already referred the case to the appropriate department. However, a solution has not yet been shipped to market.

Xbox Series X will allow you to play multiple games at once. Understand how




In the aftermath of the Xbox Series X presentation, the Gamespot publication interviewed some Microsoft executives. The great revelation of this interview will be that players can pause and resume multiple games at once.

The breakthrough with this breakthrough is Jason Ronald, director of program management for Xbox. According to him, the idea is to offer longer playing time and shorter waiting time.

With the Xbox Series X, players will be able to pause one game and jump to a completely different one. When they return to the first one, it will be in exactly the same place where it was left and vice versa.

Xbox Series X

If Xbox One can already do the same with one game, why not raise the level and transpose this feature to multiple games? This is the thinking of Jason Ronald and it is said to be a very bold idea.

According to him, players are increasingly inclined to play several games at once. Honestly, this idea might be interesting for offline games, but in online games I’m not sure of its advantage.

Xbox Series X arrives at the end of 2020

It was during the Game Awards event that Microsoft slightly lifted the veil over its next console. What was previously dubbed Project Scarlett is now known as the Xbox Series X.

Little more has been revealed that its design is completely different from what we have seen on the market. The next Xbox console looks a lot like a mini computer because of its parallelepiped shape.

Even at the end of the console’s introduction video, it is said that it will arrive on Christmas . A schedule that coincides with the launch of its major competitor PlayStation 5.
