Everyone who watches this video will be...Alexa or not.
No way, no how! Won’t set up my computer monitor camera or my smart tv either!
I received a Google home device for free. I gave it away. My phone already listens to me and topic of my random discussions popup while I'm typing in the search bar. These things are evil.

Personal privacy is a myth; we’re too late.
For my all my AFDB needs, I use this:
In other news, everybody here remember when the left was championing "personal privacy" and using it as a club to gain power?
Now apparently everybody posts their breakfast cereal and favorite brand of socks on social media.
No thanks. I choose my curmudgeondry. Smart phones make us dumb.
As I type this on a smart phone.
Well, back the the Aluminum Foil Deflector Beanie.
I have one of these at my office, mostly because my work (not my employer but the work itself) requires I have some understanding of how this stuff functions.
As demonstrated in the video, I have noticed that Amazon simply prevents Alexa from answering self-incriminating questions. I also notice that the device sometimes responds to words and questions emitted thru my computer speakers. This isn’t surprising, but I have had it respond to questions asked in videos and conference calls and that can be kind of funny.
I have also received several of these devices for free - as gifts for attending different tech conferences and vendor events. I have been unable to give them away. No one I know wants them. Even my kids won’t use them. I don’t know how they are so popular.

think NSA as the tip of the iceberg. less electronics=better living. my only tech toys; desktop ,a laptop with the camera covered. flip top phone(I have very little use for phones anyway) and a couple of remotes for the tv/cable box and the garage door
My kids gave me one for Christmas a couple years ago. I keep it unplugged and in a drawer. It kills me to do that because the oldest daughter thought I hated it as a gift.
The thought they put into it was awesome. It hurts me to think that in their minds, my rejection of Amazon equated to my rejection of their gift.
It did come with a really good power supply however. I use that all the time. It charges my phone faster than any other charger I own.
I talk to myself in the third person when in the house. A lot.
Confuses all technology.
Learn a few phrases in Russian and say them when one of those telemarketing robots (Alexa's cousins) call. They will hang up on you and take your number off the list.
Has anyone tried talking to the Echo in Spanish?
It's bad enough Amazon knows what I buy through them. I don't need to give them another avenue to spy on me. I got one from a well-meaning relative that sits in its box unused. Been meaning to give it away.
The power supply makes for a great phone charger. Best USB cable I own too.
Modern technology, yeezous!
Start 'em young too . . . .
I only use Alexa on Amazon prime music. Great in the car when you want to change or request specific music or songs handsfree.
