    I'm not saying this tech cant/isnt used for nefarious reasons. I'm just saying it's not the big boogeyman you are all making it out to be. The product itself isnt perfect. Sometimes I have to yell its name 2 or 3 times before it responds. Other times I say one thing and it hears something different.

    And really this technology is no different than the cellphone in most peoples pocket. It too can be turned on to listen. Same with cameras on laptops and tablets.

If it has digital two way communication it probably has the ability to spy on you and there is nothing you can do about it.
    I don't get these reasoning. "Well some other stuff I own might be able to track me, so I will install multiple devices in my house whose sole purpose is to spy on me and track me. Same same....." That seems the same as saying "I might manage to negligently shoot myself with the gun I am wearing, so I might as well just put it to my head and pull the trigger." Hyperbole? Probably, but it is still idiotic. It is the purposeful implementation of incrementalism, on ourselves, that we complain about in our government and media. The "I Want" syndrome will be the doom of a lot of us. What I have discovered in life is that many very likeable people are dumb as dirt at times.

    Don't put me in that group!! I've been here for 4 years and they still think I'm dumb as shat! We all come from different backgrounds and it's good to hear all perspectives. =) Keep laughing!

    If you are connected to the internet it's all over. They know everything so don't think you are special since you didn't download an app.

    You may be just that if you think you are safe.

    I don't "feel" anything about you at all. I don't know you, what you do, or why you do it. I don't have any desire to. If you have extrapolated, from my post, that you are dumb as dirt, then that is about your feelings and not mine. I have no problem with you doing you. I do me all the time. Wait...I mean I....ok, yeah, I do me.

    Trust me, I have no illusions or delusions of safety. None of us are safe. I doubt that we ever will be again. But, there is levels of lack of safety. No need to make it easy for them!!
