Favorite Alexa Commands: Remember or Take a Note

Whenever I get a new piece of technology I try to make as much use of it as possible. With Alexa this has taken some time to develop ways of working with the device, but there are some commands I return too again and again.

Favorite Alexa Commands: Remember or Take a Note

Remember This or Take A Note

Stores a piece of information in your Alexa account that can be retrieved by asking...

Alexa, What/When/Where and the name of the information you wish to store

For example...

Alexa, remember that the Wifi Password is alexa rocks

Alexa will confirm it understood what you want to store.

To recall the information...

Alexa, What is the Wifi Password?

You told me, the Wifi password is alexa rocks

I am sure you can find some creative uses of your own for this Alexa command. One big use for me is to remember where I have stored infrequently, but extremely necessary parts, papers or equipment. If you only access something every few months or so this can help you to find it again when you really need it. I could also see using this with children in the family to spare Mom a few of those “Where is…” question she always seems to know the answer to.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
