An Alexa A Day Keeps Doctor Away

written by Robert S. - Apr 5, 2017

Technology is changing at a rapid pace. People are relying more and more on apps to do certain chores, activities and many other services for them. Amazon’s Alexa is one of these devises that can do that. It can set your oven timer, play music, help you book flights, call you an Uber and even give medical advice.

Harold is one of many people who are using this app. He is a frequent user of “Amazon’s Alexa”, using it to order food, exercise, cooking etc.

One day Harold woke up with chronic back pain. The pain was so bad that he couldn’t even stand up straight, so he just laid on his couch all day. Without hesitation Harold turned to his friend “Amazon’s Alexa”. He typed in his symptoms hoping to get some kind of answer or reason for his back pain. He finally got some answers and tried it himself but still no relief with the pain. The next day Harold’s wife approached and said “Harold would you please see a doctor. You have been laying on that couch for three days! Harold replied “ Not right now honey, I am almost cured of my back pain. This “Amazon Alexa” is much better than seeing a doctor!

Harold’s wife just shook her head and said, “I guess you’re right, unable to leave the couch and in three days, “Amazon’s Alexa” is really helping your problem”. Then she said, “Better yet, why don’t you use “Amazon’s Alex” to call Uber and get you to a real doctor”.
