For his birthday, Mr. Rosenberg received an Amazon Alexa from his sister. Alexa can best be described as a black cylindrical talking robot that responds to voice commands, answers general questions, plays music, and I'm sure a lot of other things.

Bob: Alexa! Who was Jackie Robinson?

Alexa: Jack Roosevelt "Jackie" Robinson was an American Major League Baseball second baseman who became the first African American to play in the major leagues in the modern era.

Bob: Alexa! Who was Babe Ruth?

Me: Bob, you already know the answer to all of these questions. 

Bob: I just want to know if she does.
