Amazon Echo/Alexa....What cool things/questions have you done?

We have several of them in the house. Love the new "Show" version.

This made me think it could be a good discussion.

I'm terrified to get one because of this. She's smart enough she just might be able to pull this off.

We just bought an Echo, also picked up 3 LIFX WIFI bulbs. Pretty neat to quickly automate your house. Now when we are out of town we can turn lights on and off. We also have a Honeywell WIFI thermostat that she controls.

As far as asking things, that's my sons dept. He loves to have her sing and tell stories.

Ask it just what all it records, and who it sends it two.
Flat earthed on this one.

Go ahead, underestimate me. I may be PUI, but...

Better get rid of your cell phone too...You know the mic can be remotely activated as well as the camera....have a samsung TV...do you know some of them can watch YOU? Do you have a piece of tape over your laptop camera? (I do actually have that one)

I like technology/gadgets too much to care.

Grab your tin foil hats and move to a cabin in the woods....

I'm already at the cabin in the woods.
Now though, my wife is wondering why I'm shaking my Weiner at the tv and my phone.

Have you asked the Echo/Alexa "Where is Chuck Norris?" yet?

Ask it what the CIA is. Then ask if it works for the CIA.

It's better in Baja.

I wonder how quickly someone would visit you if you asked it how to make explosives or asked about killing someone important...(yes, purposely vague)
