    It's like Siri has a sister named Google, and to get Google Home to do things for you, all you have to do is say "Okay, Google ...". Welcome to the ultimate in modern tech. Google Home plays music, keeps lists, tells you the weather and traffic conditions, and gives you directions. It can also stream videos and be synced with your thermostat. It just made our list.
