Alexa Had a Baby

 I've written over and over again about how much I love Alexa, my Amazon Echo. What can't she do? She's way smarter than The Mister and me. Now that I have a smartphone she can even talk directly to it to keep track of my shopping and to do lists. The only downside I had with her was that she was in the kitchen and I wanted to talk to her and ask her things all over the house.



Amazon must have been listening because now she has a baby. Little Dot can go in any room and uses her Mama to keep track of all the things I need her to do for me, like set alarms or read my books or play my favorite radio station or podcast. The list goes on and on and on....


She doesn't have the beautiful sound that the big Echo has with it's fancy speaker but for the price she is all I need in the sewing room or card room or soap room or bedroom or wherever. I just love my sweet little baby. Squeee....!

    1. She's pretty big but you are right. I can myself looking all over for her since I move her from room to room. What I need is one in EVERY room, right?

  6. I love that you are a fan of both products and can explain why. Their new ad campaign is really quite good and reaching more people I think. If I had a say, I'd tell them to hire you on! Do you think it can parent my kid for me?

  8. Wish you could have seen/heard the Alexa duel conducted by the grand kids: "Alexa play.." No, play..." "Volume 8, no, volume 2," etc. Poor Alexa; it got kinda confusing.
