Did you figure out more fun you can have with DOT?

I'm still learning.  There are some fun questions you can ask, especially if you are a fan of sci-fi-ish pop culture references.  (Try a couple of classic Star Trek commands.)  Mostly I have used it to listen to music or sleep sounds.  I've also asked the temp outside, for news headlines, and for weight conversions when I was making cat food.  One cool thing is access to all music on Amazon, it's $3.99/month, definitely worth it.  I haven't used it to ask my phone to call people, and probably won't.  I don't talk on the phone that much.  You can ask her to play a game, and there are several, but I have just now started exploring them.

J liked hers so much that she ordered the full-sized Echo, which has amazingly good sound quality for such a small device, to put in the living room.  Then she got a speaker to fit upgrade the dot in her bedroom, decided it isn't as good as the full-sized model, ordered another full-size to replace it, and is giving me the speaker for mine.  We also got one for the screened porch, just a dot, and mostly to use as an intercom, although I will probably listen to music on it, too.  I spend a lot of time out there when the weather is nice.

These are the people I see at 08 and 09.  Not being jerky, I just totally don't see her.   Silly7

That woman with the brown hair and tan shirt, that's Drew Barrymore. at about :20 you can really tell, by her expressions and voice. Either that or a remarkable impression of her.

Did you ever see Big Miracle? That's what her in this clip reminds me of. More towards the 20 second mark.

Here's a look at the Amazon Alexa commercial from Super Bowl LII between the AFC champion New England Patriots and the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles.

The commercial stars Cardi B, Anthony Hopkins, Gordon Ramsay and Rebel Wilson with an appearance from Amazon boss Jeff Bezos.

Big Miracle is one of my absolute favorite movies. Mainly because of the Barrymore part. It's based on a true story, when some whales got caught under ice in Alaska.  Drew Barrymore plays the Greenpeace activist and she is phenomenal.

I did that too.  They don't mention Barrymore.  But she wasn't playing one of the Alexa parts.  I could be wrong of course.  But no matter how many times I watch that segment, everything about that woman says Drew Barrymore.

Big Miracle was a GREAT film, and you need to watch it, Lola.

Honestly, if it were DB, they'd say so, but all that's ever pointed out about that segment is (see last photo of story)


"Going to plan B: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos asks an employee what the plan is after Alexa. . ." http://dailym.ai/2FuvCab


That chin just isn't DB. I can see how she'd be mistaken just a bit for her straight on view, but that chin just isn't it. In this segment, there's only one famous person, and that's Jeff Bezos:

"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."

In that segment, I kind of thought that the girl beside him looked like Kelly McCreary of Grey's Anatomy too, but it's not her:

I'm sure if it was here, they'd have said so.  It's uncanny though.
