Amazon for Android Now Supports Voice Commands Like "Where's My Stuff"

Voice commands are great. While we’re used to using these in our various personal assistant apps, Amazon is getting in on the action with app-specific voice commands in its app, including things like “where’s my stuff?” and reordering some items.

The feature was quietly added a couple weeks ago, though the company has only recently updated its changelog. You can now use voice commands to ask about existing orders with commands like “Where’s my stuff?” or more specific questions like “Where’s my blu-ray?” You can also use voice commands to re-order items like paper towels and other sundries. It’s not a revolutionary breakthrough, but clearly Amazon is putting what it’s learned from the Amazon Echo to good use.

Easily Update Your Raspbian SD Cards for the Pi 2 with These Commands

The Raspberry Pi 2 is a serious upgrade over older versions, and that means you’ll need to update a lot of your software to use it. You could make a whole new SD card, but if you have old projects that you don’t want to lose, The Pi Hut shows off the upgrade process in Raspbian.

While you’re waiting for your Pi 2 to arrive, you can upgrade Raspbian using your A+ or B+. Just pop into the command line and enter these commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-ui-mods

That’s it. After a little bit of time, your micro SD card will be ready for the Pi 2, and all your previous settings, downloads, and everything else will still be on the card.
