I am Super Pumped About This New Alexa Ring

Amazon Knocks It Out of the Park Again

It’s no stretch to say I am an Alexa superfan. If you are anything like me you can’t get enough of talking slowly and clearly in a loud voice in a room by yourself toward an inanimate hockey puck that lives on your dining room table. Sometimes, most times actually, I need to repeat myself in an even louder voice which I especially like because it reminds me of how much I love ordering Alexa to do stuff for me. Having your own personal computer slave that can turn on and off your lights is great, but having one that can also order stuff from Amazon for you is the cats meow. Last Wednesday at an awesome product launch the ever suave Jeff Bezos and a super crew of Amazon exec heavy hitters rolled out a whole new lineup of Alexa and Echo (Alexa’s less cool, but still awesome, younger brother) products including the Echo loop smart ring! OMG is all I can say because Amazon has proven their brilliance yet again and developed a product that I absolutely must have. Finally I can bring Alexa with me everywhere I go. Now when I want to find out the weather in Australia I can simply hold up my hand and talk into my finger like I have always dreamed of doing. Uh-oh I better be careful not to wear it on my middle finger as that could result in some unfortunate misunderstandings. I only have one last thing to say…”Alexa, order Echo loop smart ring. Order Echo loop smart ring. I said, order Echo loop smart ring. God dammit. Stupid fucking Alexa, wake the fuck up. Oder Echo loop smart ring. I hate you. Stupid piece of shit….”

Oh yeah, what I really think in case you were wondering.
