    Amazon echo

    Have you talked to Alexa? I have a warm fire crackling. She is a nice wench.

    I've got an Echo in the living room and echo dots connected to bluetooth speakers in the bedrooms and kitchen. After the first couple of days enjoying ourselves getting them to make farting noises and discovering the Easter eggs we now mainly use them for audio books and music with Audible and Spotify. Still worth having just for that, IMO.

    My buddy has one and I spent a few days at his house.
    He uses it a lot. asking it to play certain music etc. Or who one the world cup last time.
    But the main advantage I see is when he tells her to remind him to take the pizza out of the oven.
    Shit like that.
    Worth the money?
    Not to me.
    NOt until you hook up all your lights and appliances and shit to it, and then tell it you are going to bed and to make sure the TV, computer, lights are off and the security alarm on.
    Stuff like that.

    for those of you who want to get alexa to second base

    If you've just introduced one of Amazon's Echo devices into your home and feel a little lost, you're not alone. The promises made by Amazon's virtual assistant Alexa are vast, and it's difficult to know where to start when you want Alexa to do something more than set a cooking timer or tell you tomorrow's weather forecast.

    Aside from Alexa's basic features programmed by Amazon, there are thousands of Alexa skills to choose from; skills are features made by third-party developers that help Alexa do more than just the Amazon-sanctioned basics, and many of them integrate with other services, apps, and products. Each skill has to be enabled in the Alexa mobile app (or from your account on Amazon.com) before Alexa can use it.

    Enabling a skill is almost like installing an app on a mobile device—simply enable a skill you want and Alexa will be able to use that skill until you disable it. There are more than 25,000 Alexa skills now, and while Amazon has improved the interface through which you can search for and discover skills, it's still not the easiest to work with. Here, we've outlined Alexa's main features and the best third-party Alexa Skills that you can enable now to use with Amazon's virtual assistant.
