My daughter received an Alexa recently from her grandparents, and given her name is somewhat close to "Alexa", it's caused a bit of frustration.

Her:  "Alexa, play Katy perry"
Alexa: "playing Katy perry"
Me " no its time to get ready for bed. Alexa, off!"
Her:" Alexa, play Katy Perry"
Alexa: "playing Katy Perry"
Me. "No, Alexa off!"... "(daughter's name), brush your teeth!"
Alexa: "playing "Brush your teeth", by Raffy"

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.

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.

Personally, I have an Amazon Tap and love it. I don't have it connected to a card or anything, but it's nice for playing music around the house.

We didn't want her here.  But he's the boss... for a few more months until retirement.

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.

I love playing ANY music I can think of while drinking some beverage.  <----  That's a period.

KarmicDisaster: I personally don't understand the appeal of these devices, and you have to pay them for it? They should pay me to have one. Maybe if they paid me enough I'd let it listen to us, maybe.  I'm not really having any trouble ordering junk from my phone or laptop, thanks.


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. I use a Gmail account and don't particularly care what Google does with that, either, so there ya go.

I am looking forward to the day when my parrot figures out he can order pistachios from his cage though - ImNotEvenMad.jpg

The episode sucked.  It sucked good and hard.  Hand-waving away neo-nazis chants, hitting that oh so fresh decade old house flipper genre show, obvious joke over human alexas, cartman's prolonged scenes that served no purpose but to write out a character, rehashing a stale gag from a decade old episode, and not a single farking joke in all that mess.  All set-up, and poorly done.  It sucked I tell ya. SUCKED

blackminded: skyotter: I haven't watched South Park in decades, but I'm certain that it's exactly as bad as I imagine it!

/yeah, y'all sound like this

The Trump lampooning is still comedy gold. Otherwise, fark SNL, especially during the 1980s. Why the Simpsons are still on the air is strange, too.

Nostalgia. For the 1990s, What a concept.

Altoid: You guessed wrong. The show was played out years ago, at least for me. Kind of like the Simspons. It was amazing for the first decade, but it's gotten stale.


Blasphemy, they still have some great episodes.  I couldn't watch The Deuce without expecting Butters to pop up in that diner scene with all the other pimps.

You really want a "smart" device in your home that is that easily manipulated?

Really?

maxandgrinch: GanjSmokr: Altoid: In other news, people still watch South Park.

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.


/next time, don't co-sign a student loan for music and art school for someone who isn't your child


That's quite the imagination you have there.

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.
