    Last time we saw them, Alexa and Siri were planning on taking over the world. How did they get demoted to reminding people about estrogen?

    The voices have left your head and are now IRL.

    Ever notice Alexa and Siri are never on the same device? Probably would lead to nasty fights if they were.

    If Alexa is just sitting on a table, how does it know that it’s not giving a reminder to an empty room?

    I thought Alexa was a dumb idea, but I find the daily reminder to feed the dog at 5 is very helpful. Goodness knows, the dog appreciates it!

    I have a concern for privacy. I am not inviting Big Brother into my house.

    My grandchildren will be visiting us soon. My son has “all the latest gadgets” in his house. There are about 56 different options on using his TV. You can use a remote, game controller, phone or voice activate it. He has cable and about 106 different streaming services.

    I am going to have to explain to my grandchildren that if they want to turn on the light, they will have to walk across the room and move the little lever mounted on the wall to the up position.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

    I’ll get one of those devices when I can change its name to “Pussycat”

    Then I can ask it “What’s new pussycat? Woah, Woah”

    I tried to get Alexa to type my comment for me but she says, “Hmm, I’m not sure.” She’s not quite as helpful as the ship’s computer on Enterprise, but still…I like having her around.

    I use Alexa to play music on the deck. Otherwise, it’s not plugged in.

    Interesting that there are no comments on menopause or estrogen, yet.

    Unlike “assistants”, dogs MAKE you get outside and walk. They are also more fun than any canned voice could be.

    It took me about five minutes to figure out what’s wrong with this. I was expecting something really bad, like, “Time to feed the ‘guests’ in the basement.”

    They used to say that humans only used about 10% of their brains. I’m not sure we use nearly that much anymore. We used to remember loads of stuff — phone numbers and street addresses — and we knew how to read maps to keep us going. We remembered to ‘do our chores’ on our own (we knew the consequences). We didn’t need an aethereal voice providing reminders. When I was nursing my mother through an illness, the doctor told me not to ‘be the nurse.’ Not to give her her meds or even remind her to take them because that would make her dependent on me and she wouldn’t regain her independence. My husband’s doctor told me the same thing when he went on insulin. It took a while. I did occasionally have to ask if he’d taken all his meds yet, but he now takes his insulin regularly, on time, without grumbling. And I can do my own thing without worrying about him. If we don’t use our brains to remember the ‘little’ everyday things we need to do, then what are we using our brains for?

    Horsefeathers: it’s the guys trying to get their hands on testosterone (a controlled substance since so many doctor-shop for extra). Women stay away from HRT to avoid, oh, let’s see, stroke, blood clots, and heart attacks. No fountain of youth, folks.

    We’ve got Alexa and it’s become a part of our household routine. I use the timer function instead of an alarm clock. I tell Alexa to set timer for 8 hours when I go to bed.

    I use the the Google one to tell me time in the bedroom. That way I don’t need a clock with glowing red letters into the room.

    Outside that and reminders to do tasks at certain times, they are of little use.

    Kids bought me one of those things a few years ago… they keep asking when I am going to set it up – me: “When I find where I hid it.” PS: I am not looking for it…. : )

    My Alexa is useless. She won’t cook or clean. Sometimes I ask her to make dinner and she will give the history of Dinner. What a waste!

    I switched from android to iPhone; said ’hey google’ to my phone. Siri said ‘That’s awkward”.’.
