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

So funny obvious trojan horse, and americans are so dumb they will pay the them to put it in their home. Nice easy way to put a microphone in the middle of your house that can hear everything, in case the one in your tv and your "smart" appliances arn't working.

want proof? buy one and start talking about drugs, assassinations and other "key words", and make a pattern of it, wait, and see what happens.

shill

You must be too young to remember what people were like before all this so-called "technology". The dumbing down of society continues apace, and the diminution of the necessity of human ingenuity and problem-solving skills by computers of all stripes has played a huge role. But keep right on shilling (or living in ignorance, if what you wrote is truly what you believe).

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 video advertisement is so sad. That family is so stupid. The kids don't know any jokes, so they need some gadget to teach them. Older brother is rocking out to elevator music. The mom doesn't know how many teaspoons are in a tablespoon, and the dad can't spell cantaloupe or keep track of what day it is, but then pretends he is intelligent by asking the height of Mt. Everest for absolutely no reason and by listening to NPR for his morning "flash report". Just pathetic.
