SpectroBoy: abhorrent1: Altoid: In other news, people still watch South Park.

I can honestly say I've never seen a single episode. I'm only aware of it from memes on fark, which I don't understand.

I am the mayor of edgelordville.

Oh yeah, well I never watch it and I skip the memes on fark. I can't even spell SuTho Arkp or whatever it is you two fanboys are talking about.

I am the KING of Edgelordville so respect meh authoratie


I wasn't being sarcastic. I've never seen it.

You would think that Amazon would give all their yearly Prime members with Amazon CCs a free Dot or FireTV stick(it has Alexa also), to get more sales.

Heyoooo! Be careful not to cut yourself on that edge.

I honestly thought the show had played itself out years ago.   To each their own, I guess.

Not going to dispute your position, but I will agree that the "troll" story arc was absolutely horrible. Worse is the fact that they've run it damn near every single day since it originally aired.


The troll story arc was great...for maybe 2 episodes. Same thing with the PC principal.

I think one problem with the season long arc, is it feels like I'm watching the same episode over and over.

Let's hope the house renovation thing doesn't go further.

Goddamn bingo.  The shiat is lazy and if the plot is a stinker, then that's gonna reek all season long.  And why the hell was Sharon deadpan the entire episode? I bet Stan is beating her, and the running gag becomes gratuitous domestic abuse with long drawn out scenes that reflect Matt & Trey's personal lives like Cartman's frustration with Heidi obviously does.

Warrior Kermit: I have an Alexa and a couple of dots, heck i'm single so really nothing it is listening to in the house. Great for instant weather not only where you are at but where you might be headed, timer for cooking, music and pretty much any question you might use your phone or computer for but you can do it on the go instead of having to stop what you are doing. 

i read something a few months back that kids are becoming a little more rude due to not having to say please, thank you or things like that when talking to humans after spending time with alexa in the home


I wonder if there's a Mandatory Politeness option that can be enabled.  On the humans.

I always say please and thank you to Alexa. Thought about it, decided it was just good practice so I didn't get in the habit of demanding stuff from actual people. Even asked Alexa once if she cared if I said please and thank you, she said she wasn't sure [shrug].

Let me guess... you don't even own a TV and you probably need to be at the gym soon.

/yes, I still watch SP and enjoy it.  Along with all the other shows you are probably above watching.
//and I eat at the restaurants you think are horrible.

I'd also venture: you listen to bands we've never heard of, and have all their music from before that guy, with the growl and OMG do you remember his hair?, who used to be in that other band that was great, started producing them and they got like 100 times better. You probably also collect all the work of this artist chick you used to bang, 'cause she's gotta breakout soon, and then this really deep and insightful sculpture work will be worth more than the metal recycler would pay....

Not all of us are such bohemian renegades - tone it down a bit please.

I have one, and have never used it to buy anything. I use it to manage my home automation system (lights & AC mostly) and play music (for us) & sounds (for the dogs and bird). It is only in the living room, and so it doesn't get any juicy details - not that I care what Amazon does or does not have from my conversations.

it's good for music and good for timeouts heh "get your arse to your room! Alexa, set a timer for 10 minutes". I have a hammock in my living room  so it's nice to be in the hammock and just talk to Alexa instead of holding my phone in front of my face. I've used it a few times to order stuff, once I just yelled to order toothpaste on the way out the door to school and it actually worked pretty well, just had to confirm that's what i wanted and that's that. I linked it with Dominos so i can just say "alexa dominos order pizza" and it will order a pizza i have set as default.

all in all i really like it

Callous: blackminded: Percise1: the phone is minimized and often shunted into a drawer at home

FYI, unless you take the battery out of your phone, it's a pretty simple trick to turn on the mic and camera remotely. Hope you don't have n iPhone.

Not true, when the phones are powered off the radios are as well.  There's no communications occurring with a phone that's power is off.

My brother is one of the real "can you hear me now" guys with VZW.  He tests a lot of phones.  He gets new phones months before they are even released.  I don't know if it's part of their regular testing but I know he's checked many of his phones to see if there's any communications with the towers when powered down and so far he hasn't had one that did.  And you can check your wifi to see if it's still connected to that when it's powered down.  I've never seen one that was.

One way to be sure, fully charge your phone, turn it off and stick it in a Faraday bag overnight.  If it spent that much time trying to communicate with wifi or a tower the battery is going to go way down if not be completely dead.  When a phone is trying to find a tower it puts out a ton of signal that will run the battery down fast.


Well, not an Iphone, and the cameras are useless if it is in a drawer, and besides, screen up the main camera is useless and the selfie camera is disabled. Phone also shuts off WiFi connection when it hibernates

I learned this with a dumb phone I had. The battery would normally last a week but I went camping up the coast for the weekend, and it was completely drained. I verified that it had been screaming in the dark for a signal until it died, much like many of my fellow campers.

/damn, JUST KIDDING!

astouffer: Damn this place has really turned into nothing but a bunch of whiny children.


Everyone sounds extremely poor, too.

I mean, $1000 for a phone is chump change.  What do you people do for a living, anyway?

When someone says to me, "I can't afford $1000," my response is usually, "You misunderstood, I said, please refill my Diet Coke."

COMALite J: What does Echo / Alexa do that Cortana can't?

GrailOfThunder: beezeltown: I guess I'm a cynical old luddite, but I can't stand the idea of some internet-connected device listening to everything in my home.

Whoopie, I can put orange juice on the shopping list with a few words. I sure don't want to feel like I can't express my feelings about my boss to my wife or talk about sensitive topics because some Russian hacker asshole may find a way to record everything, then blackmail me later.

I definitely don't want Google listening in, then suggesting things based on  what my daughter says while she's playing. That's some creepy shiat.

It may sound paranoid, but similar things have happened.

I get the fact that what I type into a computer (like this posting) will be picked up and analyzed by a variety of sources. I just don't like the idea of opening the door to the rest of my home life.

Do you have a Smart TV? An Xbox? A smartphone? A Laptop with a built-in Webcam?

If so, chances are you're already being "listened to". Samsung has already admitted that some of their Smart TVs listen to every conversation in your home and transmit them (to Samsung).  Microsoft was accused of the same thing with their Xbox, but they used to deny it. I don't think they do anymore, since Cortana was released.  And your Smartphone, whether it be Android (Google) or iPhone (Siri) already listens to you and transmits everything back to them.  And of course we all know of the hackers that have broken into laptops and enabled the webcams/microphones.

Unless you have no electronics in your house, it's pretty hard to get away from remote monitoring these days.

At least with Google Home or Alexa, you know ahead of time you're being "listened to" by default instead of surreptitiously.
Don't get Samsung's new Intelligent Assistant angry. You wouldn't like him, when he's angry.


Dnno, never used Cortana; but I like Alexa over Google Home for stuff outside the Google ecosystem. The Alexa Skills really make the thing useful, but I don't know to what extent other systems have utilized similar extensibility for usability.

I can control my Iris home automation system through Alexa, but I have no idea if Google Home or Cortana could manage it. Similarly, I am invested in Amazon's music system, and that plays right into it's use as a smart speaker - I couldn't leverage that through another voice control service.

Google is great for answering questions, but Alexa does the same thing *and* controls all my crap. Cortana... probably works, but I figure it is like IE & Bing - technically functional, but no one actually uses it in any serious capacity. I certainly haven't been able to do anything useful with the built-in version in Windows.

Firewall rules and DNS blacklists. Though admittedly not for everyone, it's possible to limit who devices are allowed to talk to, when they're allowed to talk, and even if they're allowed to talk. It's still my network and my internet connection. I decide w ...


Yeah, but that removes the convenience factor. The enemy of security is usability - if something is too secure to be used, it won't be, and if there are alternatives, the security will be circumvented.

So, create an Alexa rule for applying or removing the firewall rules so that you can quickly & easil- waitaminute.

Curses! Foiled again!

I love my Alexa, I don't give a rat's ass about anyone listening in on me.  The only problem I have with it is, I can't get it to properly integrate with my Harmony remote.  I haven't tried in a while, so maybe the Harmony skill has been improved since I last tried.

By default, no, when powered down they don't try to connect - but that is because no one wants to get caught with that crap again after Apple was caught tracking GPS and I think Verizon was doing the same, by default.

However a 'pwnd' phone could do it by loading altered firmware, usually a bootloader or recovery image that runs underneath the main OS. This is one of the reasons why there are like 5 steps to unlock an Android before imaging, assuming you have bootloader access at all.

The problem is being able to detect being 'pwnd'; it is simply safer & easier to assume that it has been when discussing something truly sensitive, which is why Edward Snowden put phones inside a refrigerator when discussing his work with others - he had a pretty good idea of what was possible, and wanted as little risk as possible of surveillance and so placed potential listening devices inside a makeshift faraday cage.

Overkill? Maybe. Easy? Safe? You betcha. Be silly to do otherwise, given the stakes. For most people going about their daily lives? That'd be like wearing a tinfoil hat...

They do that for the Dot buttons; it's $5, but on your first press, you get a $5 credit off your purchase, effectively making the device free. I assume it's so people don't just order them for free for parts or something; I imagine there would be a similar problem with making their other devices 'free' - people would abuse it to get a bunch of ARM SoCs or something.

Heyoooo! Be careful not to cut yourself on that edge.

I honestly thought the show had played itself out years ago.   To each their own, I guess.


Then you have cheated yourself out of some great episodes.

Thanks for taking the moment to respond. I honestly am not sure, how would I determine that?

abhorrent1: SpectroBoy: abhorrent1: Altoid: In other news, people still watch South Park.

I can honestly say I've never seen a single episode. I'm only aware of it from memes on fark, which I don't understand.

I am the mayor of edgelordville.

Oh yeah, well I never watch it and I skip the memes on fark. I can't even spell SuTho Arkp or whatever it is you two fanboys are talking about.

I am the KING of Edgelordville so respect meh authoratie

I wasn't being sarcastic. I've never seen it.

South Park threads are interesting on Fark these days.  Once the most praised show of GenXer's and early Millennials.  Now (based on comments) it would seem that younger Millennialls have turned on South Park and seem to actual despise it.  What gives?

Hope next week SP goes back to being funny instead of whatever last night it was supposed to be. If SP wants to try again, talk to Aaron McGruder about how to make it funny and a biting social commentary.

Is it not possible to simply change the activation phrase?  If not, why the hell have they not implemented that yet?
And if they have, then why don't people immediately do that when they set it up?

Vaginosilicosis: I'm more than a little creeped out by how many otherwise intelligent people would have one of those things in their house.
