London Parrot is an Online Shopper

Well, sort of.

A pet parrot managed to place an online shopping order by mimicking its owner on a voice-controlled smart speaker, a British newspaper reported Wednesday.

Buddy the parrot ordered a £10 ($13.50, 11.50 euro) set of gift boxes via Amazon’s Alexa voice-controlled system, The Sun reported.

Rick's 12 Days of Christmas: Amazon Echo Dot

I'm new to regular use of the Amazon Echo Dot, but am liking what I'm seeing.

This is quite possibly the best $39.99 I've ever reviewed.

 

  • Echo Dot (2nd Generation) is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, provide information, read the news, set alarms, and more
  • Connects to speakers or headphones through Bluetooth or 3.5 mm stereo cable to play music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn
  • Controls lights, fans, switches, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, and more with compatible connected devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, ecobee, and others
  • Hears you from across the room with 7 far-field microphones for hands-free control, even in noisy environments or while playing music
  • Includes a built-in speaker so it can work on its own as a smart alarm clock in the bedroom, an assistant in the kitchen, or anywhere you might want a voice-controlled computer
  • Always getting smarter and adding new features, plus thousands of skills like Uber, Domino's, and more
  • Amazon Echo is not required to use Echo Dot

It's backordered a little on Amazon, but is available through other retailers.

Kindle Free Pick of the Week - You Become What You Think About

It's Been Called The Strangest Secret


Buddha declared that, “The mind is everything. What you think you become.” “You become what you think about all day long” is how Ralph Waldo Emerson expressed it.

In The Strangest Secret, the only personal development recording ever to receive a Gold Record, Earl Nightingale reveals that the secret is “You become what you think about."

Using that principle, you can create an entirely different world than you live in today.

An inspirational read.
