Something else that I noticed was that in one scene upon returning to her apartment a woman spoke to the "computer" to have the lights turned on, coffee machine start brewing, and the TV set to a certain channel. Hello, Alexa! Or Siri, or Google!
A Google Home Mini recently invaded my home and I've played a bit with it. Back when Siri first came out, I still had some non-iPhone and sorta wished I had one. When I actually owned an iPhone, I barely used Siri. With Google Home, I already played around with these commands and questions:
- Who let the dogs out?
- Who shot J.R.?
- Why is the sky blue?
- Play music from the 1980s
- Good morning
- What is being played at United Artist Sheepshead Bay?
- Open the pod bay door
- Sing Happy Birthday
- Sing Old MacDonald
- Sing the United States National Anthem (no dice there, I would need to subscribe to some music service)
I like the gadget. Sometimes I wish "she" would somehow know the question is silly and be wisecrack about it instead of giving the scientific answer. It's a great speaker too.
