    I have enough problems talking to Siri on my phone, let alone another voice in the car. Can you imagine a world where you interfaced with an AI voice in all aspects of your daily life.

    I can just see it now, a driver, drives off the road and slams into a tree because he is having an argument with Alexa about what route to take.

    Re: Take Alexa in your car (and not cheat on your wife)

    I want to try playing music from the millions of songs I have available from my Amazon music account. The real goal, however, isn’t just maps or music but the ability to go from house to car without taking my phone out of my pocket or fiddling with the car’s entertainment center to link it with my phone.

    From there, things should work by voice or location. For instance, I could have a routine whereas I just say, “Alexa, on my way home” and she will turn on my air conditioner and lights. Geo fence (gps-based proximity detection) will know when I’m half a block away and open the garage door and unlock the inner door for me.

    It’s stuff like that I want to have fun with. Is it necessary? No but soon, everything is going to be integrated with everything else.
