Alexa Does Math (And Way More)

Alexa Does Math (And Way More)

You must try the Amazon Echo.

You can ask Alexa almost anything. It's kinda scary.

Just buy an Amazon Echo. It's a one time purchase - no subscription. Then install and ask away.

- Ask for weather forecasts.
- Ask for anything on the internet.
- Ask to place a phone call.
- Ask for flight status.
- Ask to play music. If you have Amazon Prime Alexa will play 2 million songs for free!

But I had to try math, "Alexa, is 1949 a prime number?" She got it right. And fast.

I should also mention this. My mother-in-law is 94 and she lives alone. Obviously there is much she cannot do. But I setup Alexa for her. And she uses it constantly for..

-The weather
-The time
-Switching lights on and off (and dimming them)
-Switching the TV on and off (and changing volume)
-Placing phone calls
-Playing her favorite music
-Getting flight status information

Alexa is an amazing tool to the elderly. I wish this got more publicity.
