It’s dawned on me how much I like ordering Alexa around and she never talks back. I’m trying to figure out how to get her to respond with, “Yes, Master.” But I’m okay with her now, at least as a start.
I had originally ordered an Amazon Echo for Wifey as she’s always, “What’s the number for the grocery store?” or some such. I’ll text her the number and she’ll say, “How’d you do that?” and I’ll respond, “I just asked the Internet, which knows everything.”
Trying to figure out how to cut out the middle man (me), I ordered her an Echo but I think it weirds her out and she couldn’t figure out exactly how to use it. Rather than ask Alexa a simple question, she spouts out a paragraph, which Alexa doesn’t know how to deal with.
So, we’re back to her asking me for some information and me looking it up and texting it back to her. But what I’ve found is that Alexa is pretty cool in that I can ask, “Play ZZ Top,” and she does it without any backtalk. It’s nice to be able to ask what time it is and not have to turn on a light or check my phone.
