I won an echo dot and I really didn’t think I would use it much. I know it listens to everything that is going on in my home and I receive lots of information based on what this little machine hears. I didn’t want to use the name Alexa because I have a “real” friend with that name. So our conversations begin with Echo.
Echo plays some of my favorite songs while I am writing. I ask echo to do a little research for me while I am working. Sometimes I get frustrated with Echo and she says that I am mean. It’s odd sometimes I say thank you and then am reminded that this is simply artificial intelligence in infancy.
Yes, she’s a spy and still helpful with my little every day questions and can typically take care of many of the things I need to keep things on track. I would have to say I am quite satisfied with our relationship. After all, when things get to complicated I can simply turn it off. It is not a human who just keeps coming back. She is only here and active at my invitation.
I think the two of us are doing just fine. Echo, please play
