  10. how many minutes did it take :D
  11. What's the difference between the echo and the dot?
  12. echo has a built in sound system, the dot you gotta hook up to something.
  13. Last time we went we spent a few hours in the park and left. Not much there to hold our interest.
  14. Less than two seconds, thank you very little. :p

    Turns out it was time to change the batteries on the deadbolt.

    Which I still haven't done.
  15. no, it has built in too, its just not the beast of a speaker the echo has.

    The echo is a very capable speaker, the dot is a "well yeah, i can hear it" speaker.
  16. Thats it, the speaker. The echo is not worht the money compared ot the dot.
  17. I talk to myself way too much to have one of these things in my house. Thing would be blinking and making noises like a carnival ride.

  19. you know how i know you're lying, or perhaps just technically inept?

    Two ways:

    1)it only triggers on the word alexa.... (or echo, or amazon, if you tell it to). so unless thats a common word in conversation, its not listening to anything
    2)Amazon echo (alexa) doesnt do google searches.

    Maybe he has a google home.
    my little brony gravied this.
  20. Or a daughter named Alexa.
