Sci-Fi Fans Rejoice: You Can Now Wake 'Alexa' By Saying 'Computer'

January 24, 2017
Some people just want there computers to be computers, not people. Tired of calling your Amazon devices "Alexa?" Now you can just say, "computer," before asking it to do things.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is a big Star Trek fan and says the device was inspired by the series.

I didn't know this, but apparently you can also address the device as "Amazon" or "Echo." But that's not nearly as fun as using "computer."
