When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Alexa Guard is no longer available in UK
« on: August 03, 2020, 09:58:10 pm »
According to Forbes: https://www.forbes.com/sites/barrycollins/2020/08/01/amazon-pulls-brilliant-alexa-feature-in-uk-and-pays-out-users/

Alexa Guard is the cool feature that many people use to have Echo devices listen for breaking glass, alarm sounds, and randomly turn on/off lights to deter burglars. But this week Amazon pulled the service from all UK devices. And if you had it in service previously, Amazon is going to compensate you with a 10 Amazon gift card. If you didn't have it enabled before, you won't be receiving the gift card.

As for me, since I'm in the US, I won't be getting anything. But I'd prefer to keep using Alexa Guard than to get a small gift card.
