    Alexa is commanding the listener, Elmer - IOW, you obey her and I think she should now order you to stfu.

    Scary when your computer commands you. Less scary with a female voice.

    Sounds like you've been brainwashed by the evil straight White male Patriarchy. Alternatively, it was designed by men who've been in protracted relationships with women, so they knew anything said in a male voice would be automatically ignored.

    What can I say? I like my men to be men.

    Men have got to practice their vocal delivery.

    I'd end up throwing the phone off a bridge.

    I bought a Kindle this year, I like to read and my wife and I already have way too many books. This is a Fire, 2017 model, and it has Alexa installed. Alexa was on by default, and at first I thought she was pretty neat. Then I noticed things started to happen on my computer, namely ads when I was surfing to sites that use the popup variety. The ads contained items that my wife and I talked about. I had read of this happening with Alexa turned on, she's always listening. Then, a couple times when the TV was on, I'd hear her respond to questions from the TV, especially if the name "Alexa" was mentioned. Needless to say I turned her off, and the ads I was seeing when I surf have stopped.

    Probably not. Google is as bad or worse than microcrap when it comes to spying. I bet she records to the cloud, all our conversations. As a precaution I do turn the tablet completely off. That requires holding the power switch down for about 20 seconds, and then a pain in the ass long boot up time.
