Just got an Amazon Echo as part of their Prime Day sales. It's happened, I'm allowing the robots to control my life

Once you get the right "skills" and accessories it's tip top. The Phillips Hue bulbs are the next thing for me, then one of the alexa compatible doorbell/camera things, then locks, entertainment stuff will wait until after Christmas, I reckon.

Teach it routines and all that :good:

"Alexa. Set lights to..........bravado."

:lol:

You own a roomba, so you can stick that right up your flux capacitor.

Bloke at work has a "Smart Kettle" that won't boil dry and will heat the water to the specific temperature for the beverage you're after. Apparently he say's good morning to the Echo and it gives him the weather, the headlines, boils the kettle and then plays the radio for him. :omgwank:

Either that or because I was nice to Alexa,  I'll be one of the meatpets owned by our new cybernetic overlords.

I got tickets to see John Carpenter in concert playing all of his film scores. As big trouble in little China is one of my favourite films I've paid extra to get a picture with him and a couple of posters signed :blush:
