I imagine a lot of my readers have some form of Alexa or "hello Google" in your home, although I'm sure some of you have issues with privacy that won't allow you to have such devices. Folks, if you are using the Internet... especially Facebook or other social networking... you're already hosed. But that's your problem.
We use Alexa a lot. I've been known to argue with her and call her names, as though she's a real person. In fact, you'll hear her stump me in this video, which causes me to whine at her. I decided rather than list the ways we use her in this house, I'd make a video to demonstrate how handy she is. Keep in mind I'm reading from a list I made in one hand and holding the iPad in the other, which is about as much multi-tasking as I care to do. Hey, it was difficult! By the way, I intended to make the title on the video "talking to Alexa", but I left out a letter. It's OK; just goes to show you what a terrible proofreader I am, although those who read my blog already knew that.
