"The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. "
W.B. Yeats- 1919
I don't see myself ever using these features, but they seem pretty cool. The delivery thing seems useful, especially around Christmas when I don't want my packages delivered home where my wife will get them first. I wonder if this will work for me though as I park my car in a parking garage where there is no cell phone reception.
I still haven't seen the actual point of Alexa in general, she only seems to do things that are already easily done, meaning it's little more than a gimmick to me. If I want to start my car I'll just get out my phone and use OnStar, or I don't need Alexa to change my radio station.
The resident "girl"
I think Alexa would be pretty cool if you wired your whole house up - electronic shades, link in the alarm system, etc. - but that all costs a fortune; a fortune I'm not willing to spend on something "cool". I'll stick to opening and closing my own blinds.
I think it's a bit of a gimmick. Some things I'd just as soon take care of myself.
