Humm, my Alexa doesn't know anything about the Alexa Silver Edition or the Amazon Echo Silver Edition :o  Wonder if Google Home does....no, she doesn't either.

Evidently it only worked the one time with the input I suggested (after it did it on it's own)... I eventually figured out how to make the funny occur... Just Say "Alexa... Silver". You'll get a kick out of it if you've seen the SNL video...

I like the thought that it can answer whatever Cell phone belongs to what person... and recognizes each person enabled... pretty cool if it comes to fruition... or if Amazon takes the line and makes Alexa able to do it without the other product...

I wonder if it's a reference to The Forbin Project?

I was telling someone about it on the phone, and " Alexa Silver" ... so I went back and looked at my input words and it heard "Watch SNL Alexa Silver video" Which is not *exactly* what I said... but got enough of it to reply...

"I don't know about that. Uh-huh." (shows the phrase in history as well)

Tried again with exact phrase this morning and no joy... It does respond to "Alexa... Silver" though. <Shrugging>

So Try those words... LOL... Funniest thing Alexa has said to me so far...

Did Support tell you to unplug Dot for at least 5 minutes before plugging it in and trying again to set it up?  This is a tip from Alexa online help section, and it works because it gives the internal circuits plenty of time to reset and clear.

Monica, thanks for looking up the household tip on this one.  A small dab of toothpaste on an index finger is a trick I learned years ago from a family friend watch repairman.  He showed me how to remove hair line scratches on a watch face crystal to polish it up.  It is a solution I have used for many things.

The white circles are most likely on the wood finish surface that got cloudy from the heat, and may likely remove a microscopic portion of the finish if the damage is not too deep into the finish.  The wood finish would probably benefit from a little furniture oil after the toothpaste treatment does its thing.
