    My mother-in-law loves her Alexa. She’s going blind, so it’s perfect for setting alarms and timers, getting a quick weather report, playing music, and assorted other little things that I suppose we take for granted. On the other hand, Alexa calls my FIL by my MIL’s name, which cracks them both up!

    Wrong. That’s a regular Echo and it can’t do that. To comment on your appearance, you need an Echo Look which was designed exactly for that – though it’s being phased out so get one while you can. And, of course, you have to “wake up” an Echo before it talks to you.

    Reminds me of a Get Smart novel, “Max Smart Loses CONTROL” where Max’s clock radio tells him what clothes to wear and that “green jelly beans cause astigmatism”. The clock radio is controlled by Number One, the world’s most intelligent computer, which has been kidnapped by KAOS and brainwashed to do its evil deeds.

    Don’t have a smart phone, don’t want one…. so it should be a forgone conclusion that I won’t have any other “smart” networked appliances in my home any time soon. It wasn’t that hard to live without them before and they simply don’t provide enough benefit to outweigh the security risk.

    That’s not to say I don’t have any high tech around the house, just that I pick and choose carefully.

    And this is just my opinion, but it comes from a lifetime working with high tech, including being a programmer and working with military intelligence for a while. Working with spooks can raise your concern level a bit and I’ve seen first hand just how bad some programmers can be, especially when it comes to networking.

    But then I still drive with a manual transmission, roll down my windows and unlock my vehicle with a regular key. I do have a ham radio installed with all kinds of bells and whistles, but I can always remove or turn that off with no impact on my driving and I know that it isn’t transmitting unless I press the key.
