“Alexa, are there any good concerts coming to town?”

“The Foo Fighters will be performing at the SAP Center in San Jose on September 12th. Would you like to buy tickets?”

Alexa just got a new skill — telling you when concerts are coming to your area — even including the venue and dates. This is a new skill and even though she got it right for me the first time, others are saying she’s a little behind. Gearbrain wrote last week that Alexa told them about a Foo Fighters concert on July 17th at Madison Square Garden in New York — more than seven weeks ago.

Still, you can teach an old AI new tricks, and this is another one that might come in really handy (or hands-free…). What do you think?
