In the tradition of La Harlot, I am asking The Blog for advice. (This is also known as consulting the Hive Mind. You can decide for yourself whether you part of The Blog or the Hive Mind.)
Younger Son, the tech guru, has an Amazon Echo, which he has connected with smart light bulbs in various rooms and with his music and with who knows what else. I have little to no interest in doing the light bulbs.
But I wonder if Alexa could be helpful in other ways.
Any of you who have one: what do you use it for? Someone I chatted with this week (I wish I could remember who) said she can say, “Put xxx on my shopping list.” That might be marginally useful.
Where do you have it in your house? YS has it in the living room where his computer is. My computer is in my office.
So tell me what Alexa does for you, please!
