Alexa can send SMS messages using your voice

  Alexa can send SMS messages using your voice To date, messaging with Alexa has meant sending screeds using Amazon's in-house system, which doesn't do you much good if your recipient doesn't have an Echo speaker.There are some catches outside of the Android requirement. Not surprisingly, you can't use this to text 911, participate in group messages or send MMS -- there's only so much you can do when you can't actually see the chats. You'll still be reaching for your phone most of the time, then, but this could be helpful if you want to let a friend know you're on your way while you're racing out the door.

The hilarious find comes to us from Reddit user mas1234, who first spotted one particularly funny review for the inflatable ball in a now-viral post from Monday.

"A fun way to ruin a weekend and blow 100 bucks," the review starts. The author of the review, Amazon user Reid hamlin, then goes on to describe how the ball took "close to two hours" to inflate, after which he was only able to push it around for "about 10 fun-filled minutes."

Reid continues: "That was when the wind picked it up and sent it [hurtling] down the beach at about 40 knots. It destroyed everything in its path. Children screamed in terror at the giant inflatable monster that crushed their sand castles. Grown men were knocked down trying to save their families. The faster we chased it, the faster it rolled. It was like it was mocking us. [...] Rumor has it that it can still be seen stalking innocent families on the Florida panhandle."

Reid's funny comment aside, it seems like the ball is genuinely much bigger, and harder to handle, than people expect it to be. So much so, in fact, that it's hard to tell which of the reviews are real and which ones are parodies.

"You CANNOT try to run away from [the ball] as it will trip up your feet and then face slam you into the ground (no matter how big you are)," one review by an anonymous Amazon customer reads. "I never really thought about how heavy and dangerous a 12-foot beach ball can be. So if you are ever chased by a 12-foot beach ball, then just STOP, DROP, and let it ROLL right on over you."

In another review, Amazon user Zia Aud warns people not to inflate the ball in their living rooms or "anywhere that has a door between you and where you want the ball to be."

And an Amazon user named Troy W. Beaver says there are several things you should consider before buying the "monstrosity" that is the "Beach Behemoth." First on the list: "It's huge. I mean it's really big, which means you cannot see who or what is on the other side of it. We had a party full of teenage boys (no small kids), and this was a problem with people getting bowled over."

Other users have submitted hilarious questions about the inflatable ball on Amazon. For example, referencing one of Sol Coastal's photos of the "Beach Behemoth" in which the ball was Photoshopped next to a male model, one person asked, "Does [the ball] come with the tiny man?"

"Sure does and he's cute," Amazon user Arleen Alejado, who doesn't appear to have a profile page, replied.

The best part of all this is that you can still buy the ball on Amazon — but it'll cost you $79.99, plus $29.99 in shipping fees.
