Build. Hack. Play. It's just what we do.

Welcome to Open Thread Friday! The spot to talk about almost anything you want to. The only thing I ask when I host is please, as always with me, no politics. There are more than enough places in the Kinjaverse for those and more than enough people who will love to argue with you. This is a safe place where you can converse without worry of saying something political that you’ll get called out on. At least, I hope it is :)

So, I have an Echo Dot and am looking for opinions/comments on them!.I actually have two. I like them! They’re fun to interact with (she tells really bad jokes) she tells me my calendar if I ask, lets me know when orders are shipped and delivered, but the one thing she can’t do is wake me to the radio in the morning. Unfortunately, she’s only able to do one thing at a time right now in that regard. I’ve pre-ordered the Echo Spot because I’ve been looking for a decent alarm for several years. Where we live now, radios have almost no reception when it comes to any AM talk programs and some of the FM ones are just too weak to get too. So right now, I have the phone set to wake me. I’m really hoping they build a better Alexa with the Spot. We’ll see.


What about you? Do you have any Alexa powered devices? I know you can use the Eufy and a few others and then of course, there’s Google Home. I don’t have all the lights and security and such that they can run, but if you do, I’d like to hear about it. Or not. You could just let us all know what your plans are this weekend. My plan is to try and get better. That’s been my plan though for two weeks now...smh

PS!!! My bathroom is DONE if you want to see some before and afters! Cross Thread Thursday
