Tools and Gadgets Amazon Echo DotThe New Generation Amazon Echo Dot is our personal favorite member of the tools and gadgets club because of its features, flexibility, functionality, and value.  I use my Echo Dot every day for music, information, sports, and news.  My wife uses hers to play audiobooks in addition to all her favorite songs on Amazon Music.  The latest generation model is really a bargain compared to the Amazon Echo which doesn’t have much more capability but is much more expensive.

It’s a totally hand-free device controlled by a gadget-lover’s voice with a built-in speaker for hearing Alexa’s voice and listening to music and other audio sources.  It also has the latest A2DP Bluetooth connectivity, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n (2.4 and 5 GHz), and the ability to connect more capable stereo speakers or headphones using its 3.5 mm audio jack.

To use Dot, they will connect it to Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service using the Alexa app giving them access to play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and even control home automation devices instantly.  Alexa—the brain behind Echo Dot—is built in the cloud, so it is always getting smarter.

To control Dot, even from across the room with music playing, they will just say the wake word “Alexa” and Dot will respond instantly.  Once they have one, they will want more and Alexa will be able to respond intelligently to them from the closest one thanks to its built-in Echo Spatial Perception (ESP).  Plus, Dot is so sleek and compact (1.3″ x 3.3″ x 3.3″ (32 mm x 84 mm x 84 mm)), closely resembling but larger than a hockey puck, that it will be easy to place several of them around their home without anyone noticing.

They will be able to do so much with their new personal assistant including using it as a smart alarm clock, voice-activated home automation, a smart timer in the kitchen, hands-free voice control of Amazon Music, and even voice-shopping on Amazon for millions of products.

If they love music, they will love Amazon Dot which gives them the ability to control Amazon Music, Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, or TuneIn by just asking for their favorite artist or song, or requesting a specific genre or mood.  On Amazon Music, they will also be able to search for music by lyrics, when a song or album was released, or let Alexa pick the music for them.  If they get really into Amazon Music, they can also try Amazon Music Unlimited Free for 30 days which allows them to listen to any song, any time.

More recently, new skills have been added to Echo Dot to give it even more capabilities like ordering a pizza from Domino’s, requesting a ride from Uber, tracking your fitness with Fitbit, ordering flowers from 1-800-Flowers, and more, with even more skills being added every day.

I’m actually listening to my music on an Echo Dot right now while I’m writing this article.  This unbelievably capable device is an amazing value and an amazing gift!

#18 – SnotTape ST-202 Multi-Surface Painters Tape Barrier

Tools and Gadgets SnotTape ST102 Painters Masking TapeHow could anything with a name this quirky be useful and effective?  One of the painting tools and gadgets taking on 3M’s Scotch Blue Painter’s Tape, the SnotTape ST-202 Multi-Surface Painters Tape Barrier uses a specially formulated polyurethane gel that sticks to your surface and fills the gaps in the surface texture creating perfect, sharp paint lines even on uneven surfaces.  Billed as 50X better at stopping paint bleed than Frog Tape and Blue Tape it fills in gaps and produces sharp paint lines while typical painter’s tape can’t fill all the gaps created by texture and can’t handle all the different types of surfaces you might be painting. That’s why it’s so difficult to keep paint from bleeding through.

I do my share of painting and there is nothing more frustrating in painting than going to all the work of taping off a room only to find out when you’re done painting that the paint bled through onto the surfaces you were trying to protect.  I’m not a good painter, so I need the tape.  Good painters can cut in trim by hand without using any tape.  If your gadget-lover is like me, they need this tape.

It sticks to surfaces other tapes have trouble with.  The latest thing is easy-to-clean paint like Eggshell satin, semi-gloss, and high-gloss, but that also makes it more difficult for tape to stick to it.  SnotTape sticks where other tapes fail.
