I finally broke down and bought an Echo off of Amazon.
I bought it for one reason and one reason only.
I want to be able to turn my lights on and off with my voice.
That’s about it.
Oh, it’s cool to play music and ask Alexa the time or the weather forecast, but what I’m truly after is voice control lighting.
Tejas and Yvonne have Alexa in their homes.
She can do cool things like set timers, play any song you request, control your thermostat, etc.
Personally, I want to set her up to give me compliments.
“That dress looks SMASHING on you!”
“Have you lost weight?”
“You’re having a GREAT hair day today.”
In that respect, she’ll be a like a surrogate husband, making me feel attractive and sexy.
But Alexa is also a wife.
Because do you know what else she can do?
She can interface with Amazon and order things for you.
Voice activated online shopping.
Just what I need.
A faster way to spend money.
