    "This one is easy. Just download the app on your android phone and you can use it already with google home. I create tasks and follow-up reminders on it. Then before i leave the house, i ask it to run the list of my tasks for that day. A very high-tech to-do list!! "

    "The best when it comes to tv and live tv is the youtube tv i guess. It has dozens of channels unlike other service that there is only one or those that contains only your purchased shows. It's a bit pricey that's why i subtracted a star but i can say it's worth it anyway. "
