Either that or I'd bore someone to death listening in while I live my life. Bottom line: This deal between GM and Amazon doesn't worry me. Not yet, anyway.
    I would add in globally there is an "outcry" about privacy / the "power" internet companies have so they can "get away with less" privacy wise

    Alexa! Siri says she's much hotter and smarter than you. I think you should give her a call and straighten it out.
    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    "technology and convenience" today and mandatory tomorrow !

    This crap listens to everything you do and I am still amazed how people welcome this into their houses and now cars, where I am most private with what I do and say. You do understand they have people going though these recorded conversation "to improve your experience" , right ?

    It's not that I have anything to hide, I have nothing I want you to know.

    I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to get these ladies to dance for a while now. Seems their intelligence is a bit too artificial, unfortunately.

    It's not that I have anything to hide, I have nothing I want you to know.
    It's the principle of the matter. If people just blindly or blandly accept being spied upon "because I have nothing to hide," you WILL be spied on and your freedom will be gone before you realize it.

    Plus 1, Neanderthal. I was given one of those creepy devices as a present. It's buried in a drawer somewhere.

    It needs to go in a zinc-lined coffin out back somewhere. If Skynet is activated, it may crawl out of that drawer and attempt to harm you. Hopefully your dog or cat will kill it and shake it until it comes apart, screaming for mercy all the way to Electronic Spy Hell!
