    Big Brother is always watching. Anyone ever read the book "1984" by George Orwell? It's amazing how much of that book became truth. But being the ever industrious species that we are we went beyond spying TVs. We built spying phones, fridges, computers, thermostats, etc. We are in the age of "alternative facts". You are constantly told what you have to think, say, and do to be patriotic. Cameras are everywhere. It was a very intuitive book.

    Dude!

    Governments aren't that smart. They work by committee.

    The Amazon Dot is cool but the Google Mini is a better design.

    Amazon upped the game with that Spot though...:thinking: I wonder if they can work together!

    Still having fun with the dot. Latest one to really crack me up was asking Alexa to pretend to be a villain. I really need a different hobby

    It is okay, now these days you cannot tell who dies, and who deserves punishiment on their job.
