well duh, they're listening in on millions of conversations... who didn't know that already?
I had my Echo on for about 2 weeks. It started to do some weird stuff. I unplugged it and never plugged it back in.
Won't allow that stuff in my house.
alexa has radomly come on and said something strange in the middle of the night once or twice. was very weird. its still plugged in, but if I ever see it grow legs and start trashing the living room I'm sending it back for a full refund! Aint nobody got time for that!
Our echo will pipe up unprompted from time to time. I doubt anyone cares about our useless conversations.
Mine has Tourette’s.
That’s why I shut mine off. It kept talking in the middle the night.
Mine works great. It would say it didn’t understand me out of the blue sometimes but that’s probably because I said something that sounded like Alexa.
I don't understand why anyone would even have those in their house...
I got my wife the google home device after her badgering me for weeks about getting an Alexa. I avoided the Amazon product as I don't want to open another avenue to my wallet. I do hope to later connect it to other smart devices to help me control my house, but this is not a priority. She loves it for running timers while she is working on things in the kitchen. She also uses it for playing music while working on stuff. Her and the kids ask it about the weather every morning. The kids ask it to tell them jokes (and we get the same jokes over and over). All things we did before we got the device, but through other means. No great advance, but no great cost (money or privacy), and it solved the nagging wife problem. We haven't had any issues with it. It understands all of us fairly well unless the kids fumble 14 extra words and pauses into their question so nobody knows what they are really asking. It also doesn't talk or act up while unattended. Oh, and she uses it to discover my scrabble/bananagrams words are real words and she lost again.
We use ours primarily for music. The sound quality is astounding. Sometimes we'll just turn off the damn TV and say, "Alexa, play 80's music" and off she goes.
80's? Seriously? That's not music!! Maybe 50's/60's.. That's music!!
Arent you supposed to be dead by now?
Yes! But I'm not quittin' that easy...
Yeah that’s what my parents say too.
80's music? Alexa doesn't say...I can't help you there,Bud.
Same here. IMO it's idiocy.
You don't like music?
I don’t like devices that listen to literally every word spoken in my home. If I want music I simply turn on my stereo and select the source I wish.
