The love many Americans have for the newest and latest gadgetry is being proven once again with word from the folks at Amazon that a new high-tech Alexa-enabled Christmas tree is temporarily out of stock. Called Mr. Christmas, the tree, it’s lighting display, even the time it will turn on and off can be controlled by Alexa, if you are willing to shell out $300.00 and if supplies are replenished in time for the holiday season. Truth be told, you can actually accomplish many of the same type of Christmas tree decorating tasks by buying Alexa-enabled electric outlets and lights for a fraction of the cost and many of your favorite hardware stores and home centers have plenty of them in stock. Alexa won’t yet open your Christmas presents for you, but that can only be a matter of time. That’s the way I see it.
