Rory and Carolyn met in seminary, fell in love, and got married. They decided to hold off on starting their own family while they settled into their first jobs in North Dakota. After a few years, they moved to Minnesota, where Rory accepted a job as a minister, and Carolyn enrolled in a hospital chaplain residency program. At the time, they did not know how important the decision to move would be for their future family. When they moved, neither North Dakota nor Minnesota had SMA on their newborn screening panel. It wasn’t until March 2018 that Minnesota adopted and implemented newborn screening for SMA, and then several months later, in 2018, Rory and Carolyn’s only son Edan was born.
Per DeAnn’s recommendation, I bought an Amazon Echo Fire Cube for myself, and it arrived yesterday. It’s great! With it, it essentially makes my tv a smart tv. Currently I’ve got it set up to play Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and DC Universe. It’s incredibly easy to use, and relatively inexpensive, especially considering the things it can do. Watch DeAnn’s video if you haven’t already.
Is anyone else using this device? Do you have any questions about it?
Amazon Prime and Netflix are working great. The only app I’m having trouble with is the DC Universe one, but I think it’s the app itself. It just recently became available on Amazon devices, so I think they’re still working out the kinks. But other than that it’s great!
Some apps do work better than others. If one locks up on you, you can go to settings and force stop in app management. You can also clear data and cache if they still are being a nuisance. Do you use the Fire TV app to navigate at all? It works great if the voice commands aren’t working.
