Have you ever cursed at Siri, Alexa, or Google for failing to understand your words? You’re not alone. We may be guilty of lobbing an insult or two ourselves. But we should all be careful.

With the Fall Creators Update just around the corner, Microsoft is talking up the improvements it has made to Windows 10 so far. Specifically the Windows 10 Creators Update released in April 2017.

It’s been a decade since we first saw the iPhone and iOS. Apple has never included a “user exposed” file system on iPhone or iPad. Each app would have its own sandboxed storage system. With iOS 11, that’s changing.

It’s just an app where you can view all the files saved on your device (in the app) and from various cloud storage services. You can organize them using tags, preview documents, save...
