Product Description

Denny O'Callaghan is afraid to open his eyes.

He'd been out drinking last night with the guys, and his head throbs, his arms hurt, and he can't remember what he's done.

He opens his eyes. Blood. On his sheets. His pillowcase.

Then he gets a call: his ex-wife was murdered last night.

He desperately tries to piece together what happened. But he can't explain how he got the scratches on his arms, the police want to know about the domestic violence report his ex filed against him, and his buddies say he was raging against her last night before he stormed off on his own.

Right about the time she was murdered.

Take advantage of this introductory low price!

Amazon Echo's New Pomodoro Skill

Just stumbled across this new Pomodoro Skill on Reddit, and I thought some of you might be interested in checking it out. My Dots are in the kitchen and bedroom--I have a Google Home in my office--or i would try it out myself.

I had to look up pomodoro in wikileaks to find out what this is and why it's named for a tomato. Interesting and the skill works, at least for the few minutes I tried it, but honestly the ticking would drive me nuts. I do sometimes keep a clock open on the bottom of my screen to track elapsing time but that's resolutely silent.

I think you could find pomodoro easier on wikipedia rather than wikileaks....  :o

Egads, tic-tic-tic-tic-tic-tic... this would be a cool Echo skill to have if you could disable the non-stop timer ticking in the background. I wouldn't be able to get any writing done.

I'll stick with my phone app.

Quick video I made of it in action:

Ticking might be good "white noise" to put you to sleep.  A lot of other sleep sounds to choose from though.
