Chris came to visit this weekend and brought along my Mother’s Day gift: Alexa. Perhaps you know her as the echo dot from Amazon. It’s a little black donut shaped electronic piece of equipment that becomes part of the family.
I am so happy that Chris came, and stayed, with Alexa during the breaking in period. One must learn to speak a little differently when talking with Alexa. All questions must be prefaced with her name. For instance, “Alexa, how are you?” If I were addressing you, I might say “Hi Reader, how are you?”
Alexa can play music, play the radio, set an alarm, or set a timer. Alexa can do on line shopping. Alexa can access Wikipedia on a subject you choose and read the findings to you.
Alexa is quite amazing. The greatest thing about Alexa is that she continues to learn as more updates are made to her operating system. Alexa even tells jokes. Chris says our grandchildren are quite amused with Alexa.
Another day, another adventure. Have you seen the Silver Edition of the Amazon Echo?
