Nope, no Siri, or Alexis.
No "smart TV" to spy on me, either.
No appliances, thermostats, security cameras, that are connected to "the internet of things."
No devices, such as door bell cameras, that send signals to my cell phone.
I've lived many, many years without that stuff, don't want it now.
If computers died tomorrow, I'd be perfectly happy with my library that contains hundreds of books.
There is no substitute for the printed word.

Anybody bother to watch the video link?
It's pretty enlightening as to these robots motives:
Q. Alexa, Who was Mohammed? A. A prophet
Q. Alexa, Who was Jesus? A. A fictional character
Wife: Why do you wear a gun in the house?
Husband: Because the government is listening.
Husband shoots Alexa.
It was a good day.

I Have Alexa, I her for:
1. Cooking Timers - "Alexa, set timer for 15 min"
2. Playing Music/radio stations - " Alexa, Play Eric Clapton" or "Alexa Play KENN"
3. Target of abuse - "Alexa, why are you such a stupid whore"
4. Weather - " Alexa what is the weather today"
That's pretty much it. I don't worry about anybody listening, I always assume THEY are. And if that is what you are worried about, then you should probably not be on this forum.
My friend named Kenny asks Alexa what his name is and Alexa answers:; "Your name is Kenny. But you've asked me to call you Big Sexy. But for the record, your name is Kenny." That always makes me laugh.
Question; When you ask Alexa why she is such a stupid whore, what does she say?
Spying notwithstanding, I have no need for one.
Prepping is not a destination... it is a journey.

With Alexa, you can program it to say whatever you want, which is what he did. That’s why he said “Our Lord and Savior...” so that Alexa wouldn’t get confused and quote Wikipedia.
For example, I programmed my Alexa to say my kids’ names when I ask it “Who is a silly goose.”
