How to use Amazon Alexa, You can even play RPS! Twenty or 25 years ago, talking about an intelligent house for many would have been unthinkable; But not for the creators of The Amazon Echo and Alexa, the Amazon device that allows you to control a home using the voice! In 2001 Apple surprised the world with the integration and popularization of Siri, the first voice assistant of a smartphone: a tool that fulfilled basic functions such as searches, reminders, alarms, and messages. Today this same type of tool allows controlling much wider functions, considering important aspects of a home and our day today. Amazon launched Amazon Echo in 2014 to expand its incipient market of proprietary technology devices, preceded by the different versions of the successful digital reader, Kindle. At that time some experts of the digital world - like Gizmodo - considered that this device was one of the voice assistants that we would probably never use; however, time seems not to have given the reason.

Tyler Seguin Cheats to Win at Rock Paper Scissors Tyler Seguin and Mark Scheifele both like to be the last player to leave the ice before every hockey game. There is no problem with this except for the times they play each other. Since obviously the two players cant wait on the ice from their pre-game skate up until puck drop Rock Paper Scissors was the simple and elegant solution to solve this conflict. Scheifele came out on top in the first match and Seguin had to skate off the ice in shame. Tyler Seguin didn't like this, so on the next encounter he simply faked out Scheifele in order to be the last man on the ice. When they met the third time a gentleman's game occurred where Scheifele once again came out on top. 2 - 0 for Mark Scheifele. That brings us to meeting four. Tyler Seguin is at home in Dallas and the two face off for their match. In the video released to [...]
Seguin vs. Scheifele - Rock Paper Scissors Competition A rock paper scissors competition is great. Professional NHL hockey players Tyler Seguin and Mark Scheifele both like to be the last players off the ice in their pre-game skate before games. In order to solve this standoff the pair used rock paper scissors. Scheifele won the first game. This must have been difficult for Seguin to have taken the loss because the next game instead of going for a rematch he decided to fake out Scheifele. This didn't sit well with us, and we assume Scheifele didn't enjoy it when he find out he had been duped by Seguin because when the pair met again we were lucky enough to witness Round 2. Scheifele won again! Tyler Seguin and Mark Scheifele are both incredible hockey players, but also great rock paper scissors players, well maybe just Scheifele is a great rock paper [...]

Rock Paper Scissors in an American Legal Trial The Precedent has been set to use Rock Paper Scissors in an American Legal Trial. In 2006, American federal judge Gregory Presnell from the Middle District of Florida ordered opposing sides play a game of Rock Paper Scissors in order to settle where the two lawyers would conduct the deposition of a witness. The choices were the building where they both work, four floors apart, or a court reporter's office down the street. The ruling in Avista Management v. Wausau Underwriters stated: Upon consideration of the Motion – the latest in a series of Gordian knots that the parties have been unable to untangle without enlisting the assistance of the federal courts – it is ORDERED that said Motion is DENIED. Instead, the Court will fashion a new form of alternative dispute resolution, to wit: at 4:00 P.M. on Friday, June 30, 2006, counsel shall convene at a neutral site agreeable to both parties. If counsel cannot agree on a neutral site, they shall meet on the front steps of the [...]
