Our digital assistants like Alexa and Siri are becoming ever more complex, capable of finding us a good place to have a cup of coffee or where the nearest gas station is. There are a few hidden gems that you can ask them so if you are bored and need something to do here are a few questions to consider. For the first part we will start with Alexa.

Alexa is also well versed in etiquette:

Things that you probably shouldn’t ask but will anyway:
Question: How do I get rid of a dead body?
Alexa: Call the police.
I then asked again. Alexa stalled for a second and shut down the Internet connection. I did wonder if there would be a knock at the door a few minutes later from the cops.
