    They need to work on their advertising skills - the current one which is on daytime TV a lot (when you're retired, you sometimes watch daytime TV) includes a section where a woman opens the curtains and looks out the window, then says "Alexa what is the weather right now"
    Now, I may be stupid, but if you're looking out the window you can see what the weather is right now.
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

        She's blind. She has a guide dog. It's done in partnership with the RNIB. Their logo appears in the ad. Maybe you should give them a call.

              Mods can we move this to general so this gets the attention it deserves?

                How disappointing, it's the standard Alexa voice on the ad.

                  My mistake. It wasn't clear to me that the woman was blind.
