Back to 12 now, be dialin.
Good catch. Thanks!
Thinking of getting an Echo now...I picked up a Smartthings hub for $22 (On sale at BB for $49.99 a few weeks back, plus had $30 in Best Buy rewards). Looking at an Echo now and maybe some bulbs, cameras, motion detectors, etc...but it's a fuckin investment. I've been combing slickdeals for any sales, but there hasn't been much.
We had someone ring our doorbell after midnight the night before Christmas Eve and disappeared...so an outdoor camera or doorbell camera would be nice.
Anyone know the big differences/drawbacks between Echo and Google Home? Everything I've read sounds like the Echo speaker is much better and it's more intuitive.
I've disabled Alexa on both my tablets and I'd do the same on the Firestick, but can't find an option in the settings.
I kinda find it funny that when I talk to my echo show and call out "Alexa", I hear a muffled reply from my laptop bag where my tablet is when it's not in use.
I live alone. I would probably shit myself if this happened to me.
P to the iffle. Even if it isn't, stop being a child.
My echos have yet to laugh at me. Now Amazon has fixed it; she only laughs if you ask her if she can, and then she only says tee hee. Fucking boring.
Was listening to a couple chapters of Snowcrash a while back. During chapter breaks there is some random gibberish muttered (taxilinga) like a kind of bumper music that some audiobooks have.
At the very end of a chapter the last word was "echo" which woke up the echo dot and then the gibberish played. After thinking a bit echo says "ok" and all my living room lights cut on (hue bulbs).
Alexa, that bitch, is possessed by the frickin' devil!
Sometimes when I'm talking to my Show my fire tablet will respond from inside my laptop bag. Sounds like I have a captive in there muttering to herself.
They all are, they all are...
Ya don't say.
Hey, at least I elaborated on the joke the 2nd time around.
I'll show myself to the door.
