Not that I want to own it but I am fascinated reading about this device that takes orders - something like a personal assistant. It costs around Rs. 4000 and wonder if anyone here owns it and what has been the experience.

I don't have one but my friend got one as a Christmas present from her boyfriend! It was fun for a few days to ask it silly questions and laugh at the results but the novelty wears off pretty quickly!

Both our grown children have one, but I really don't want one. I don't like the lack of privacy when an electronic device is listening to us all the time.

I don't like that. I value the privacy of my conversations. Though, the way I see it, it is a techie thing, which I think can't understand much as to how I can make it function.

@allknowing Oh so that's how it is. It will already make me so lazy if I have that.

They can now interpret our voice and the cctv can see our movements. Imagine when they can read our thoughts. I do not want that to happen.

I don't have that. I don't like the thought of somebody might be hearing what I said. Well, I just heard about it.
