Fun With Alexa

So I got one of those echo Dot thingies. Goes well with the hue lights I've got installed.

Also she is NPR cognizant. I suspect the thing will play any station that has a web feed in one form or another. So, who has one? What do you think of it?



I managed to score a last generation iPad as a refurbished unit. I need to replace the old one that became the first casualty of concrete floors. It's really okay. That thing was a second generation iPad that I bought new. It was old and slow. Some stuff wouldn't even run on it.

Weekend of upgrades.

Yay for upgrades!
How I wish I could do some upgrading of my own.

I'm buying one, in a couple months. It'll sit in my kitchen and I'll tell her to play music from Spotify. And send mail and send texts. And maybe other stuff I've not thought of yet. What are you doing with yours?

There should be an Alex, by the way. Comeon google.

Re: Alex
So far... A lot of that stuff you wanna do. I've also got 1/2 dozen hue lamps. Walk into a dark room, "Alexa, turn on the dresser lamp..." That sort of thing.

Re: Alex
I'm looking forward to getting mine. I want it to record a conversation that I'm unaware of and mail to a stranger!
