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.

amazon will be having an alexa hardware event on Sept 24.   Wonder what new devices they will have this year.

Hmm, I wonder... Maybe a better version of the Alexa Frames (it never got out of the invite only phase), a new Echo Auto (one that works with CarPlay or Google Auto), or some new wearable tech?

Looks like Amazonís Ring division has an indoor flying drone security cam. Iíd buy it just for the cool factor.

Right now it's just a prototype. It is expected to ship sometime in 2021.

think of the fun you can have with it if you have pets.   you can have fun  with them when not home.  Means more cat videos...

You are right, it is one of those devices that would be cool to have.  The only thing I would be worry about is it crashing into glass cabinets and aquariums. 

Really nothing I would be interested in with the possible exception of the new Show 10.  With the newer processor that is supposed to help with voice commands, I might get it to replace the main show 5 in the living area. 

I was hoping amazon would come out with a hub device where you can use voice without cloud access when the internet is down. 

I am also disappointed with the mesh, could at least put alexa on it.   would help with the clutter of plugins with all the different devices people have these days.   I ran out of wall outlets and got as many power strips/surge protectors as I dare.

The little drone is too cool! Useless to me (Old people here all the time, The thing would never get a chance to fly around and check out stuff much...), but very neat little item. Maybe one day...
My Alexa environment includes :
1 Full Sized Echo
3 Echo Dots 2nd gen
2 Echo Dot 3rd gen, One with Clock
1 Echo Spot
Several Hue Lights with a single bridge
5 Fire Tablets (1 as a control panel in Kitchen)
One Ring Doorbell Pro
Also 4 cell phones with Alexa app installed!
You should see My Apple Device List!

not sure how I feel about the new look of the echo speakers. The sphere looks a bit odd to me.
