I was going thru my cached history to find a particular article and I can't find it...dangitall!

What I read in the one article is that Amazon proposes to use the fresh delivery with their within an hour delivery market.
The delivery within an hour market would be helpful for 'pushing' the newish market for the Amazon Wand.

If this is the way it is to be used, then I can only hope that jobs aren't lost.
Stores might be rebranded with Amazon name but employees would stay.

Thread: Is this a fair thank you to amazon
Thread is Pretty, Pretty Strong.
Good point, Scoot.

I am notoriously bad for scanning an item in store and seeing where I can get the item for the best all around price for purchase.
If it's a large item, free shipping included.
Been meaning to look into this...needed that bump.

Which is why, when I do retire, I'm going to live in the middle of a national forest somewhere with no phone, no electricity, no internet and live off the grid. Just call me Uncle Leroy, the Mountain Man!

You sound like my second son.
I do wonder if he could do it...seriously, the kid loves his Playstation, XBox, electronics and more.
Nor do they having working kitchens out there...he's a classically trained chef.
T'would love to see it though.

Me on the other hand?
Too foo-foo and prissy.

I do like vacationing in decked out homes/cabins in the mountains with the ammenties such as...
Beds with 800 thread count minimum, heating and air conditioning, fluffy towels and no bugs or critters.

It is peaceful and nothing like rocking on the front porch watching the sun rise as I'm drinking my morning cup o' joe.
Good thoughts, strength and peace are always accepted.
Prayers, too!

I saw this earlier today on Twitter:
Bezos: Alexa  buy me some Whole Foods
Alexa: Bought Whole Foods
Bezos: Whaaaaa...ok.

It supposedly doesn't actually record until it hears the trigger word (alexa, unless you set it up to respond to amazon, computer, or echo), and then records what's said immediately after.

From what I've observed, that is the case.  I haven't seen any network activity from it until the wake word has been said. 

Anyway, I figure there's lots more interesting folks out there than me for them to listen in on ;)

Yep, addressing ours as Alexa wakes it up.
We always get tickled when there's an ad from Amazon and it says Alexa...She wakes right up and will follow the directions that they are offering on the ad.
Or a show that has an Alexa character.

I hear ya and agree on the cellphones, tvs and other items recording...I have them all disabled on EVERYTHING!
I even have tape over the camera on our laptops...nope, nobody seeing me.
I'm boring and can't imagine anyone putting me on the top of any monitoring list.
I knew you didn't.
If I came across as pushing you...that wasn't meant either.
I'm extremely passionate about issues such as this and I know more from my side of the coin that those who have never experienced it.
I wish I didn't have experience in the above issues, but I do see it as a plus when helping others to view the other side of the coin.
I like a good back and forth especially when I gain another's insight.
We're all good!
Mine didn't bounce back until Sunday.
I've come to depend on Reddit more so than Seller Forums with Amazon.
Not that the knowledge base on the Seller Forums isn't 100% spot on, which it is.
I just get a taste for consumers what they are feeling via the Reddit.

AND I have to go in and delete the recordings.
Which is something I don't think about doing.

The only recordings I've seen are the ones where I say "Alexa"
I can guarandamntee you that if there was a burglary going on, I'd holler out for Alexa to record.
Several of the posts showed persons attempting to open a buying Amazon account and/or Amazon Prime...Nice first experience with the company.
Others who were opening Amazon credit cards said it would 20 plus times entering the info and then gave up.
All in all not a good experience for our buyers.

Thanks for the helpful hints.
Lots of posts on reddit regarding Amazon (along with Amazon products) just not working, or working but kinda, or sporadically working.
