I have to face facts: my mobility is reducing a good deal more quickly than I'd like. And sometimes the mobility I do have is accompanied by a reasonable amount of pain. My memory isn't what it once was either. I regard this new phase in life as just another challenge to be faced and - if not beaten - then dealt with crisply. By accident I bumped into IFTTT. Also by accident we renewed our Amazon Fire Stick recently, and that comes with Alexa built in. Curious as ever, mucked about with it. Didn't take long to make the link between the two..... Yeah, I get it: ya don't get owt for nowt. There are - for some - security or privacy concerns which outweigh any perceived advantage. I accept that. But when you need to work out how to get back up again before bending down to pick up the hen's eggs: when, before descending into a trench, you work out which ladder will be the least painful to use: when you for the first time realise that you can't be sure who rang you when and on what date ... its time to harness a bit of creative thinking. Voice activation has to be part of my future because it will help reduce the number of sources of pain. Please can we discuss on this thread POSITIVE reasons for opting in to either IFTT and Alexa or IFTT and Google Assistant? Maybe there's another voice activated technology which you know about that might help control simple parts of our lives?
