Ladies and Gentlemen! The new Amazon Echo! Will you be getting one?
This won't be coming to my home anytime soon.

What do you think?

Well this one came out of nowhere: Amazon is building a speaker that's controlled with your voice. It's called Echo, and Amazon tells The Verge it will be "shipping in the coming weeks." Available on an invite-only basis to start, Echo is regularly priced at $199. But for a limited time, Amazon will offer Echo for $99 to Prime members who receive an invite. Amazon says the black, cylindrical speaker is always connected to the cloud and will provide information, music, news, weather, and more whenever you ask for it. It's the sort of thing you'd expect from Google — only it's an Amazon product.

That was my thought. If you have a tablet, smart phone, smart tv, smart meter, gps, onstar, home alarm...you are already tapped directly into NSA....what's one more? Besides how often are you plotting your next nefarious deed via the cloud or siri?

The electronic eavesdropping is great actually. I welcome it with open arms. One day when you unplug all this shit, there will be now way for them to know you even exist.

And when the last cop who still remembers how to hit the pavement and physically search for somebody retires, they won't be able to find you if they wanted to. There will be nobody left who knows how.

The novelty would last about 20 minutes, before it became a nuisance with everybody arguing over it.

Wow, great for getting the kids even dumber by letting an AI entity do their homework, that will ensure kids from ever learning any decent know abouts for sure.

The future is here kids, lets all love and worship our great AI and lets not ask any more questions our parents ever asked because AI is here to take care of us.
This will be getting its own religion.

All hail the great AI... yoda
