A.M.A. (Against Medical Advice)

Or rather A.G.A. (Against Guffaw’s Advice)!

A while back, my friend Borepatch (who definitely has a right to such opinions in such matters) wrote regarding the acquiring and use of Siri, Google Now, Cortana or Alexa.

Or their fellow travelers.

I warned my roommate of such folly.

BUT, she is addicted to newfangled gadgets (as best she can afford them)!

(And, it IS her home, and she supplies the Wi-Fi…)

THIS arrived in the mail yesterday.  Apparently, there was a sale

It’s an Alexa (Echo) device (‘courtesy’ of Amazon)

(aka, “the electronic hockey puck of EVIL!” – spoken in Don Adams’ Maxwell Smart voice)

Sigh.

There’s a cartoon somewhere (unfortunately, I couldn’t find it) showing government agents discussing how citizens will place wiretaps/bugging devices in their own homes voluntarily, and will allow them to record conversations and Internet activity with ease!

They were gleeful!

I am not.  😦

Sigh.

  2. Alas, you & Agent 99 will have to use the Cone of Silence to have private conversations from now on.

  3. Nope. Not with a ten foot pole.
    One of those things are not coming in. I’m sure we have enough leaks as it is!!

  4. Valerie Perrine beauty of the day? Thank you. I was a teenager, when she graced the pages of Playboy, in 1975. She was referred to as divine. I agree, she was lovely.

  5. If you can’t find that cartoon, why don’t you ask Alexa?
