Siri just scolded me for cursing. I wasn't even talking to that bitch!
Siri no one fucking asked you
This is from a conversation Siri butted in on. What he heard was not what we were talking about. At all.
My dad just got an iPhone and apparently he asked siri if she wants to be friends and she said 'this isn't about what I want'
Have you see the SNL skit of the Amazon Echo for old people? It slayed me- I could totally see my parents using it.
We got an Alexa last Christmas and it's been interesting the things she "hears" when no one is saying anything.
A couple times she has just said "I didn't quite catch that" or "Hmmm I don't know that one" with nothing showing up in the log.
My favorite was when K and I were quietly sitting on the couch browsing through Netflix, so no TV noise even, and she says "I think you're one smart cookie". The log says she heard "Alexa, am I dumb?"
I think you have ghosts...
Today we were going grocery shopping so before hand we tell Alexa what to add to the list as we think of it and when we get to the store we can pull up the written list.
Pretty sure neither of us told her that
Soooo... @Aw Pigley how long before they air an episode of Dateline about your serial killing spree?
Alexa heard me say "play" to the Echo dot in my bedroom last weekend. The thing is, I had been in the living room all day and thought the music I heard was coming from the neighbors. Noooooope.
Wow. This happened to us ONCE and we gave away our Google Home or whatever it was immediately. You guys are brave.
Like Ilana Wexler, “I don’t fully understand the cloud, and I don’t trust it.”
G got a second Alexa for a different floor of the house, to control the lights or something. I don’t even know. The first one creeped me out when I was quietly working and suddenly started playing Beach Boys songs. How can you check the command log?
Right? I’m not here for it. Between our phones, computers and tablets, we have enough listening devices in our house already.
We have one of those things (don’t remember which, it was a corporate gift) and it lives in my murder basement because I’m scared of it.
WAIT...THESE THINGS CAN MAKE YOUR SHOPPING LISTS???
Yup. It’s awesome when you’re in the middle of cooking and you’re running low on something and can just yell out to add to the shopping list. That said, mine’s never added a murder to-do.
A coworker has her whole house outfitted with smart devices. She was talking about how handy it is. I was interested and checking out the cost of the thermostat and smoke detectors. Then I saw that articles were coming out about Ring having very lax security protocols and employees can basically look up any camera and watch it.
No thanks. I'm good.
Before the app updated it used to be the first thing that showed up like a home page. Now I can't find it lol
Yes! I also make her tell me a joke every day before I leave for work.
I asked Alexa what her opinion of Jeff Bezos was tonight, and she gave him five stars.
He can keep 2.5 of them in the divorce.
We are getting closer and closer to the beloved made for television Disney film Smart House.
Or the Ray Bradbury short story, The Veldt.
