Invoxia on Thursday announced that Amazon's Alexa Voice Service has been integrated with its Triby digital assistants. The voice-activated unit is the first non-Amazon product to be Alexa-enabled. Triby, which has a magnetic frame, features a built-in speaker and microphone that can be used to listen to Internet radio or as a hands-free speakerphone, but its main function is to act as a digital assistant that can provide hands-free control for getting information from the Web, including Wikipedia, weather, news and sports.

Products like this have some very practical applications if they can matched up to some good software. There are so many elderly and disabled people who want to live at home even though they can be just a fall from a serious tragedy. This device could be integrated into a home environment, given some software that will protect privacy while recognizing distress noises and be able to ask questions and call for help like a personal companion. It could even monitor someone's mental state to detect a stroke or seizure. It just needs the algorithms to do so.

Should businesses and organizations require staff to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination before physically coming to work?
Yes -- At this point it makes good sense and will help stop the spread of the virus.
No -- It sets a bad precedent against personal privacy and civil liberties.
I'm Not Sure -- There are valid arguments for and against vaccine requirements.
