Echo Dot – What’s all the fuss about?

Echo Dot

If you loved the 2013 movie “Her”, in which the lonely Theodore fell hook line and sinker for his computer, then read on because the new Echo Dot is a spectacular device that could be your next B.F.F!


The totally “hands free” Echo Dot uses Alexa, which is a voice controlled system developed by Amazon. You can speak to Alexa using your Echo Dot and ask for anything your heart desires and the futuristic gadget will do its best to grant your wish.

Here is a tiny example of the ways the Echo Dot can help you to organize your life on a typical morning.

Wake up and ask Alexa the weather…she will respond with a detailed forecast in 2 seconds flat!

Cooking breakfast?..ask Alexa to set a timer so your boiled egg is just right!

Time for some tunes…tell Alexa to play any track or album from your hard drive or link to the numerous music apps such as Spotify, Pandora or you can use Amazon music for free!… then change tracks, adjust the volume etc. without moving a muscle.

Check your daily chores by asking Alexa about your “to do list”. Also add items to your “shopping list” with a simple voice command.

There are 1000’s more things it can do from playing games with you to telling you the ingredients of your favorite cocktails and ordering Uber cars. Pretty much anything you can do through a normal computer; you can now do from your favorite armchair by chatting to the silky voiced young lady.

Alexa is very nearly the perfect woman! This baby has awesome hearing and can hear you from across the room and even in noisy environments or while playing your favorite tunes!

Our favorite features of this 2nd gen model are the ability to control smart home devices, make phone calls, read the news, and even read audiobooks from Audible. It has a built in speaker or can be connected to larger external speakers or headphones via Bluetooth or 3.5 mm stereo cable.

This little bundle of fun can also be set up to control lights, fans, switches, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, locks, and more with compatible connected devices.  This trending gizmo is always getting smarter and adding new functions to its’ repertoire such as Uber, Domino’s and so on.

This tiny device is a total must have for anyone even faintly technically minded. While away hours just “chatting up” Alexa. Ask her about the meaning of life, how many movies Adam Sandler has done or whether Santa exists, she has an answer for everything…the future is upon us!
