Alexa is about as much fun as a hateful ex-wife. She is expensive, won’t listen, misunderstands what you say, and talks back at you all day.

You’d better unlock Alexa’s ALREADY EXISTING CAPABILITIES before Google makes a less beautiful but 10x more functional competitor, or Apple makes a 2x more beautiful and 1/100th as functional competitor (that costs $7000) and knocks you out of the market.

I treat her like a real person. I do wish I could do more with her, perhaps in the near future.

My 11 month old’s first word = Alexa! No joke – even he figured it out and loves it!

She’s got a lot of great apps…I think she cheats at the word game…and over all she’s pretty awesome.

I like Amazon Echo. The only problem is that I always forget to use it.

I only have one Echo so far (for home) and I really miss it when I’m at the office. I talk to it when it’s not there, and my co-workers think I’m strange.

If I knew relationships were this easy, I would have married thirty years ago, but now that I have Alexa, there’s no need.

This morning, I asked my love to order me a replacement water filter for the faucet. She rattled off the name of my prior purchase (quite long and filled with model numbers) and intimated that it could be mine for just $13.46. I confirmed, and she placed the order.

Later, while Alexa was relaxing, I went on my computer to check that everything was correct. Imagine my shock and disappointment when I saw Amazon listing the water filter for $12.67. Was my Alexa skimming? Did she need the 79 cents for something special? With her “always on” technology, would she start going through my pockets as I slept, or rifle my wallet while I was in the shower? Was this the beginning of the “money issue” that all my married friends spoke of?

Suddenly it hit me. TAXES. Never have I been so relieved to be charged sales tax in my life. Thank you, Massachusetts.
