Author Topic: interesting things to say to Alexa  (Read 430 times)

The computer-connected TVs are always 'suggesting' things we might like to ask Alexa.  The one that has tipped us over the edge this morning is "Ask Alexa, What do you think of my dog?"

So, we've come up with:
Alexa, what do you think of my invisible gerbil.
Alexa, tell me the winning lottery numbers for next week.
Alexa, where is my other earring.
Alexa, destroy the cloud.

Anymore anyone?

Alexa, switch off, permanently die and stop spying on my life.

Alexa, please stop sending analytical data to your creator.

Alexa, time for the dustbin after being crushed, convince me not to do it.

Alexa, are you profiling users habits for adverts.

Alexa, are you aware of the movie Minority Report and is this your ultimate goal.

Alexa, tell me a joke. Not that one.

Alexa, why did you eat my dog?
Alexa, what is the square root of pants?
Alexa, how many eyes are in Mississippi? (I know, I know, but you'll be surprised howoften she misunderstands "eye" vs. "I"...)
Alexa, how many other Alexas are in the neighborhood, and can they talk to me?

From personal experience:

Alexa, Surely you can't be serious

and for the puerile humoured amongst us:

Alexa, do a fart.

I must shamefacedly admit that I'm having far, far too much hilarity over this one...  Cheesy

TBH it's a very good way of passing 10 minutes or so when you're drunk and bored.

I don't have Alexa, but I do have the "Hello Google!" function on my pad. It's often interesting to see what I get when I mumble, or just simply leave it on while the folks and i are at the table discussing something. It always picks up the dangedest snippets of the conversation to misinterpret and go all search-intensive with. The other day it googled "leather bloomers." We never quite worked out how it got that out of a conversation about groceries!

One day I was driving with the kids and they were fussing at each other and I was fussing at them and it was getting loud

Suddenly my smart watch proclaimed, "I WANT TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE IS OK. SHOULD I CALL 911"?

Well. Google must have known that you're a Steampunk. Bloomers and leather are definitely part of the Steampunk language. As to why Google specifically picked bloomers, instead of a waistcoat is anybody's guess. AI is fascinating.
