I keep my Amazon Echo Dot in an owl

The owl is not what it seems. :wink:


The owl is also a good visual metaphor to remind you to that in capitalist America, Echo Dot watches you!


Amazon is constantly listening to me talk to my dogs in silly voices.

I can probably ask Alexa to turn it into a podcast or stream me via Twitch.


Who you listening too Alexa? “Hoo? hoo?..” ( sorry seemed funnier in my mind)


Can you rename it to “Bubo?”


“Alexa, how many licks does it take to get the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?”



perhaps we should ask Amazon for wake word ‘Hedwig’

I had set my wake word to ‘Computer’ until I realized the complications from watching Star Trek.


It’s artificial?


Owls are pretty neat but honestly from the headline I was hopin for somethin more in the techno-taxidermy category.
