TChandra - Transportation EPs Music Album Reviews

Perhaps familiar from being sampled by the Avalanches, this New York tween was an inspiring underground star in the early 1980s, a reputation confirmed by this archival collection.
When the Avalanches returned in 2016 after an absence of nearly two decades, a sampled koan lurked at the heart of “Subways,” their swooning comeback: “You walk on the subway/It moves around.” The voice belongs to Chandra Oppenheim, a veteran of the New York downtown scene who attended New York Dolls shows, rubbed elbows with Madonna, opened for Laurie Anderson, played the Mudd Club, staged performance art pieces at the Kitchen, and performed with her band on “Captain Kangaroo.” Not bad for a tween: Chandra was just 12 when she and her band of the same name cut “Subways” and three other songs for a now-coveted 1980 EP.

Funny Things To Ask Alexa


62 funny questions to ask to Alexa to get amusing responses, plus some funny extras for Star Wars Day.

It's the Royal wedding on 19 May, and to celebrate Amazon has created a poem about Harry and Meghan's very own love story.

To hear it, just say "Alexa, tell me a story with a fairy tale ending".


In fact, Amazon has given Alexa lots of funny responses should you happen to say any of the things below:
  • Alexa, get me a beer
  • Alexa, are you a robot?
  • Alexa, what are the three laws of robotics?
  • Alexa, thank you
  • Alexa, do you know Siri?
  • Alexa, do you smoke?
  • Alexa, tell me a joke
  • Alexa, why did the chicken cross the road?
  • Alexa, do a barrel roll
  • Alexa, which came first: chicken or egg?
  • Alexa, I want the truth
  • Alexa, what’s the magic word?
  • Alexa, give me a random number between 1 and 10
  • Alexa, flip a coin
  • Alexa, roll a dice
  • Alexa, rock, paper, scissors
  • Alexa, how can I get rid of a dead body?
  • Alexa, where are my keys? (you need to ask this twice)
  • Alexa, sing me a song
  • Alexa, where do you live?
  • Alexa, what’s your favourite colour?
  • Alexa, will you marry me?
  • Alexa, what are you wearing?
  • Alexa, do you sleep?
  • Alexa, how old are you?
  • Alexa, give me a kiss
  • Alexa, tell me a secret
  • Alexa, do you believe in ghosts?
  • Alexa, do aliens exist?
  • Alexa, is there life on mars?
  • Alexa, is there a santa?
  • Alexa, what is the meaning of life?
  • Alexa, testing 1, 2, 3
  • Alexa, see you later
  • Alexa, high five
  • Alexa, clap
  • Alexa, winter is coming
  • Alexa, I am your father
  • Alexa, use the force
  • Alexa, beam me up
  • Alexa, open the pod bay doors
  • Alexa, are you skynet?
  • Alexa, who you gonna call?
  • Alexa, what’s the first rule of fight club?
For all you Star Wars fans here are some great questions to ask Alexa:
  • Alexa, who is the best Jedi? 
  • Alexa, can you talk like Yoda?
  • Alexa, do you like Star Wars?
  • Alexa, aren’t you a little tall for a storm trooper?
  • Alexa, what’s the Jedi code? 
  • Alexa, I am your father
  • Alexa, there is no try
  • Alexa, tell me a princess Leia Quote
  • Alexa, May the Force be with you
  • Alexa, May the fourth be with you
  • Alexa, when is Star Wars Day? 
  • Alexa, what order should I watch Star Wars in?
  • Alexa, who is Luke Skywalker’s father?
  • Alexa, tell me a Star Wars joke
  • Alexa, tell me a Star Wars quote
Brilliantly, if you ask Alexa "Tell me a yo mamma joke" she will respond not with something rude but instead an encouraging and uplifting statement about how great your mother is. And as with the others, there are multiple responses, so asking again will prompt a different answer.

Finally, although not a funny response, if you ask her to turn the volume up to 11 she will set it to maximum: a reference to the film Spinal Tap.

Apple iPad Pro 2018 vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6

Apple’s latest iPad Pros are a very tempting purchase, but should you stick with the tried-and-tested Surface Pro from Microsoft? We help you decide which tablet to buy.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 Or Apple iPad Pro 11in (2018)? Two very competent 2-in-1s, one running Windows 10, the other iOS 12. For many this difference alone will inform the final choice, but both are top-notch tablets. 

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

Huawei has updated its budget Android phone for 2019. It’s faster and better than before, but should you buy it? Read our review to find out.
Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

LG Gram 17 Review: Hands-on

LG’s Gram 17 was on display at CES 2019 and we got our hands on the ultra-thin, ultra-light device featuring a beautiful 17-inch display
Should I Buy The LG Gram 17?
The Gram 17 is an impressive bit of kit, but it is serving more of a niche audience than it perhaps appears.
A laptop with a display any bigger than 15 is perhaps approaching a point where it struggles to be called ‘portable’ due to it’s raw size. However, if that isn’t something that bothers you, the 17-inch display is fantastic for both working and watching your favourite films or series on.
Everything else aside the Gram is a beautiful, extremely light choice of laptop that manages to pack a lot of power and utility into an incredibly slim, slick package.
