Where does Apple store your iCloud data?

“The cloud” is a concept, not a place, although collectively, the cloud is made up of places. Cloud computing refers to an aggregation of servers that you don’t have to know much about to gain the benefit.

How to change the Google Assistant voice

Google Assistant is finding her (or his) voice. At Google’s developer conference this year the company introduced six new voices and they’re now available. The new voices, three female and three male, are said to be more realistic because they include pauses and intonation, and they better approximate the way real people speak.
