The Magic of Echo

We received an Amazon Echo for Christmas.

It's an absolutely great device. You say it and ALexa does it. I just told it to play some 'Tuck and Patty' and it plays. I can't wait to hear how it works in the car tethered to my phone as we travel.

Right now it's a living room delight.

After a couple of hours...

It's absolutely a great device, a wonderful extension of YOU.

Hey!

Cool beans. I have seen the commercials for the Echo, but hadn't quite figured out what it is. NICE!

Happy Holidays,

Dean

Some of this new technology is a little
creepy to me. Strangers know WAY to
much about us!

Alexa should appeal to all the men who've been married for a while.
Finally, a female who does whatever we tell her to do!

Echo is quite easy to use. You say “Alexa, play Tuck and Patti's music" and it does. In some way it's an extension of you.

Besides playing music, what can it do?

It listens and connected to the internet. Boy Amazon (or Hackers) can find out everything about you. But with Windows 10 someone may already be listening.

I was an early adopter of Echo and have had mine for almost 2 years. I listened to news briefings, podcast, audible books and much music. I also ask for spelling of words, metric to imperial measurements, weather in various locations, etc. I love her but my husband is sure she is an instrument of "Big Brother" and refuses to have her in the living room or bedroom. He may be right. I use her in my read and craft area. I purchased the Dot for travel...haven't received it yet. The Tap by Amazon seems better for not "always listening" and reporting to the NSA.

The Magic of Echo

I've been using my Echo for about two years too. I also use it to control my lights and thermostat. I use it for music, sports scores, and news. I also order common items from amazon. They work really great. Google also has a personal assistant called Google Home. It seems to be the same thing.

Hmm, I'll have to see if there is an accessory that would turn on the light which has an inconvenient switch.

Hubby gave me one for Christmas as well as the home environment controller. It will be nice when we are back home to set it up. We have one dining room light with a most inconveniently placed switch. Several years ago, we found a switch that ran off the signal of another, so we had switches on both ends of the room, but it died and is not being made anymore.

He also gave me a DVD player for the second TV he installed in our Silver Cloud, so now we have a TV at both ends. I was enjoying it last night; he was sleeping in the living room while I was sleeping through the DVD that was playing in the bedroom.
