Anyone else got one? I bought the new one, with the hi-def screen, yesterday. What a brilliant way to waste an evening...

Alexa, play some music by The Fall.
Alexa, play some music by The Bad Seeds.
Alexa, what's the weather going to be this weekend?
Alexa, how's the traffic on the M1?
Alexa, play the latest episode of The Archers.
Alexa, what's the weather like in Bulawayo?
Alexa, what is Iceland?
Alexa, if you were to walk to Glasgow from Stony Stratford, how long would it take?

How did I ever manage without her!

Alexa, how are you using & storing the personally identifiable information which you're recording alongside everything else I say & do in my home while monitoring my behaviour, and how will you comply with my right to erasure under the GDPR which comes into force from May 25th 2018, when I withdraw my consent to having my sensitive personal data recorded & processed via your third party recording device installed in my home? ;)

Alexa - open the magic door

I got as far as the door opening and then work rang, don't yet know how good or bad it will be......... but will see what happens !

Getting Alexa to tell the wife to get the kettle on is going down well !! And The bar is ok, but a little clunky.

Alexa has caused a bit of friction in the religious community when a YouTube video emerged of someone asking Alexa "who is Jesus" ?
The response was......" Jesus is a fictional character ".

"He's supposed to be Turkish. Some say his father was German. Nobody ever believed he was real. Nobody ever knew him or saw anybody that ever worked directly for him. But to hear Kobayashi tell it, anybody could have worked for Soze. You never knew; that was his power. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist."

Alexa has an answer for that...

"You don't require a woman for that"
