Amazon Echo, Alexa. Silly but true story...

The family and I were watching a Prince concert tonight.

After it ended, my 12 year old daughter was walking around the house singing. She walked by our Amazon Echo and sang "Let's Go Crazy", Alexa replied "Let's get nuts".

Not sure what triggered her response because my daughter didn't specifically say "Alexa".

Anyway, turns out if you say "Alexa, Let's go crazy", she will reply "Let's get nuts".

It made me smile after a long day.

Cause tomorrow is taking too long
and yesterday's too far away
and the reality that you believe in begins to bind.

lol, We just tried it again and Alexa said "Oh no, let's go"

It only seems to work with "Let's go Crazy", cause I have been trying other songs to no avail.

amazon.com's robotic digital assistant that is voice-activated to respond to verbal commands. you can order things from amazon.com by saying things like "Alexa, order ten pounds of chocolate". there are some funny stories of little kids ordering weird things, having them delivered same-day to their parents' house...

Thanx 4 sharing! I tried it with my Amazon Tap and it worked. biggrin Now, ask, "Alexa, who's bad?" Won't spoil it for you what she says. wink

Amazon's version of Apple's Siri, or Google's Hey Google. Voice activated and interactive computer. Some Android phones have a voice unit on them like that, but the last time I tried to interact with one I might as well have been speaking Mandarin.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Ha, I tried this with Siri and she said "sorry I couldn't find anything called Let's Go Crazy". Completely useless sometimes. lol

It's, "OK, Google", or, "Hey Siri". Sorry but seeing, "Hey Google", triggered my inner nerd. lol

Now I want to try this when I go to client's houses. Two of them have Alexa. I mean, the darn thing offered to look for Scout when I said hi to their dog Scout. Hilarious. I was like Nah, the dog's over here, begging for treats.

I imagine myself inside your bedroom; oh, I imagine myself in your sky.
