Win an Amazon Alexa

 Amazon Echo Dot Alexa

Have you heard of the Amazon Echo Dot (also known as the Alexa)? It's that little, black, circular device that responds to voice commands. If you watched the Super Bowl, you would have seen it featured in multiple commercials. It's a bit of a bizarre product, but since it's gaining popularity (and because I love my readers so much!) I thought I would give one away on my blog.

Follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter widget below to enter to win.

  10. I have never used this device but heard of a little girl here in Dallas who ordered a dollhouse through Alexa without her parents knowing!! It all ended good as the family collectively made the decision to donate the dollhouse to the Children’s Hospital!

      We didn’t know that my little cousin could read yet, he was only 3, but he used his grandmother’s tablet and ordered a Thomas the tank engine train for himself. He also ordered a case of enfamil, which made me laugh even more that him ordering the train did. Both orders were on amazon.
      The train was returned, and the baby formula was donated to a homeless shelter for families.

  21. I have never used one. I've seen some family members do it, and it looks fun, but I've never wanted to give it a shot because I don't know yet how much we'd use it. But I'd be willing to try if one fell in our laps!

    Doesn't this track what you're saying to it and leave the data stored somewhere, especially if you don't remember to erase the history? I'm leery of any connected or listening device in my home of any sort, even the new smart TV's. Kind of Big Brother-ish.

      Me too. I don't trust anything that listens to me and watches me and tracks my movements (like smart phones, smart TV's, this Alexa thing and maybe even laptops?) Yes, it's Big Brother-ish and Orwellian (1984), if you know what I mean...

      Yes it doesn't. I read someone were I lived some girl who was 10 years old had it call 911 and it wasn't emergency and the police made them get rid of it because it was dangerous. They still had to pay for the ambulance to come.

      Our computers have their camera lenses completely covered with black electrical tape, on purpose. Hackers like to see what you're doing, if they get in.

      It's a phrase of speech I use sometimes. Life was simpler when my hubby and I were kids, and we still like the simple things and way of life. We never seen a horse pull a buggy til we went to Lancaster Pa. after we were married...Jane

    I won’t have anything to do with Alexa because if you ask “who is Jesus” it answers that He is a fictional character! I won’t buy anything that has been programmed by the liberals to deny the existence of Jesus.

      That was a fake story! If you Google it multiple articles will come up proving it was fake. If you ask who Jesus is, the Echo will just read you the Wikipedia article about him. Trust me, I have one and so do multiple family members and we've all tested it out. - A Christian Liberal who Believes in Fact Checking Too ;)

      Great comment! I think like that, too.
      If you ask Google who is Jesus, it doesn't know but it sure knows Allah etc. That's why I prefer DuckDuckGo, it does not follow what I do in Internet and it also does not censor the search results. The big tech companies are very much censoring information and at the same time, spying on us.

      Not all liberals think that Jesus isn't real. Please stop putting labels on all liberals.

      Aren't kids supposed to ask their parents those things (human interaction)? And can't people jot things down on a piece of paper as a reminder?
