Alexa is coming

Notification from Amazon last night:

Alexa, the brain behind Amazon Echo, is now available on Fire tablets. Voice responses from Alexa are enhanced with visuals for certain questions. See your calendar, view the weather forecast, play music and Audible books, see sports scores, and more. When connected to Wi-Fi, just press the home button for 1 second and ask:

  • “How’s the weather?”
  • “Tell me a joke.”
  • “Reorder paper towels.”
  • “What’s my Sports Update?”
  • “Add laundry to my to-do list.”

If you really loved me, Alexa, you’d figure out some way to keep laundry off my to-do list.

(I think it’s time to watch Her again.)
