It’s officially Amazon’s 2017 Prime Day.
I already bought one more Amazon Echo, and another Echo Dot, even though I hadn’t yet installed the Dot I ordered 2 weeks ago for my workspace. These work great for playing music, but I’ve been using Alexa’s timer and alarm functions a lot. One of these days I’ll get the “home automation” stuff going too.
There’s potential in the Amazon Echo/Alexa devices. One day I hope there’s a body-mounted module so I can do things like activate and deactivate a corded dust collector vacs and the such by voice.
Not to mince words, in regard to tools, there’s a whole lot of crap on sale. But there are some decent “I’d buy that” tools worth mentioning.
