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.

New Fire Tablet 10HD has built-in Echo Show Mode
« on: December 15, 2021, 09:44:38 am »
This is probably not news to many, but it is to me! The Amazon Fire 10HD Tablet (at least the 2021 version) has built into it the Echo Show Mode. It's as simple as pulling down from top of the home screen and turn on 'Show Mode'. I can also turn Echo Show Mode on and off with Alexa commands (Turn on show mode, turn off show mode, etc)

I am just beginning to learn what this does, but it really shows promise and eliminates me having to buy another Echo Dot, this has even more promise

Yes... I have had several 10" fire tablets and they have all had the SHow function for a few years now. Even the ones that didn't used to were updated on all the ones I have. I have been paring down the herd for about 2 weeks now and I am currently down to (3) 10" Fire Tablets and 9 Echo products. Slowly I will be changing over to a differnt AI since Amazon is so insistent on marketing through their products so much they're becoming annoying. I did JUST this week receive a 15" echo show though, and I'm liking it so far. It will eventually become a marketing blaster as well, I assume. Really don't like all the shopping suggestions at all. But so far the New one hasn't done any of that. Having a control panel for my In laws (who are in their mid 80's) is actually helpful.
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!
