A neighbor is giving me a tour of his home improvement gadgets . . .
We walk into the living room and he says, speaking slowly and distinctly, “Alexa, turn off all the living room lights.”
After a couple of seconds, the living room lights dim and go out.
“Why is that an improvement?” I ask. “I could have turned the lights off and on 15 times by hand in the same amount of time.”
Later, I told my wife about this . . .
“Maybe you’re sitting down and you don’t want to get up to turn out the lights,” she suggested.
“You want to sit in the living room in the dark?”
