Listener Feedback:

  • Big thanks to Violet for helping test the sketch, tap and heartbeat features of the Apple Watch last week.

 

 

Featured Story: Amazon Echo, IFTTT, Hue Lights

  • Hue Philips lights. Geofence for automation. Set alarms and timers. Hue Disco lights for iOS and Disco Light for Android. IFTTT triggers. Control them from your Apple Watch.
  • IFTTT recipes to automate FitBit tracking in Google Docs. Works with Withings scale, too.
  • Amazon Echo, IFTTT and Hue Lights. Can I get a J.A.R.V.I.S. hack? PLEASE?!
  • Hear your news feed, get sports scores, weather updates, and useless facts from Wikipedia. A better version of Siri.
  • Reorder Amazon Prime items, of course. No Pantry items, yet.
