I've got an Echo Dot on each floor. My kids are spread out all over the house and out of sight and I need help rounding them up for meals and talks. They use theirs as a jukebox and alarm clock, too. Meh. It was selling at 70% off... why not?
I've been trying out the experiment where I sit next to my Echo and, with no prompt, mention a product out loud I have no interest in and never search for or talk about anywhere online. Like saying "I wonder how much a Turkey Deep Fryer costs" (not the object I talk about- as typing about it would ruin the experiment) and see if Amazon starts trying to sell me one. It hasn't happened with me though.

Alexa has both the English Settlement and Oranges & Lemons albums -- for now, at least. My record player sits dusty and lonely as I ply Alexa with gentle, murmurous requests for Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Holly Cole and Peggy Lee.
