    We got delivery of our 4 additional Dots and Wifi plugs last night. My 11 year old son hooked them all up. We now have one in the office, master bedroom, livingroom/kitchen, and both of my kid's room. Alexa is controlling our Christmas tree, my Office light,and bed reading light. I'll be adding a WIFI light switch to my kid's rooms so they won't need to get out of bed to turn on and off their lights. I have to admit, we're having great fun.

    They'll still need to roll over to yell at the Dot.

    On a side note, we enabled the "Drop-in" feature, making all the dots work as an intercom system throughout the house. Now my kids are driving me crazy when I have the office door closed. They keep "dropping in" on me and talking non stop. I guess if people on your contacts list also have an Alexa it's possible to drop in on them as well. So I could say, Alexa, drop in on Mike, and bam, we are talking while he's on the pot.

    So they'll be dropping in, or listening in when daddy is "wrestling" with mommy...and become frightened not realizing that mommy isn't hurting with those sound effects but enjoying it.

    Next thing you know...in the dark of night... Nomad Jr is quietly making his way to the livingroom table -(where he previously noticed the shotgun affixed to the bottom side) and gets ahold of the gun.... Makes his way to mom and dad's room and ever slowly gets the door ajar....and BaAAAMM shoots Nomad Sr in the back, to rescue mom from this monster that was pounding her.


    "Alexa... Call 911... my son shot my husband right before I had a chance to....ummm...get there. Now I'm about to shoot him- I'm so pissed!!

    Don't worry boys, she's always listening and it just goes into the cloud with no specifics on how long your conversations are there, who has access to them or when/if it's ever deleted. Nope nothing could go wrong there. Something like this would have put a smile on Hitlers face from ear to ear. Think of man hours he could have saved.

    Try telling Siri to turn herself off on your phone.

    She argues!
