Default Voice recognition.......

For Christmas my family received an Amazon Echo Dot which I have since been setting up, including signing up for Pandora and linking it to stream music. In searching for pipe music on Pandora I discovered they had the John Burgess "Art of the Highland Bagpipe" album and set up a "John Burgess" station for myself.

This morning I decided to listen as I made breakfast so addressed the Echo with "Alexa, play John Burgess on Pandora".

"Unable to find Jamba Juice" came the reply...........

Reminds me of my iPhone.
"Replay last text."
"Here's what I found for 'replay last text' on the web."

Useless!

I remember typing out a new tune list for my band on Word Perfect some 20 years ago. It was fine, but half the tunes were marked by spell check as having errors. I went through the list, and the corrections were hilarious.

Just imagine the fun Siri (or Lisa or Esmeralda or whatever the latest cyber wench is called) would have with my tea of choice Lapsang Souchong.
