    Hey blondie. I think I am in love (kidding) but being in the same age group I remember a lot of those things, and wife and I still can things, and know about wood cooking (wife is better at it) tv was maybe better when we had 3 ( here( channels and 1 phone with a party line. Respects to you and yours.

    As for media catering to young people they really should give facts, and when editorializing make all us think. The posters on here I like the better make me think and assess my opinions, even if I come to different conclusions

    Google is scary - I don't like the idea they control our searches and only release info they want us to have online among other things. Unreal!

    I even know how to cook just about anything over an open fire or wood stove, kill and butcher animals,

    have a garden for produce, how to can

    I want Blondie in my bunker when the zombie apocalypse comes.

    I think I like the idea of Alexa hearing me have sex. I mean.........that would mean that I AM having sex, right? That seems like a good problem to me.

    Has anyone seen the great hack on Netflix? That's definitely worth a watch

    I am definitely going to try the experiment Simon outlined in his last post!

    Got to admit, I was skeptical about the whole 'constant listening' thing. I thought Alexa listened only for the wake word and at that point began recording and submitting my voice or conversation.

    I still think that's the case but with a lot less certainty than I had before.

    I'm digging into this . . .

    I never trusted thosethings from the beginning, I would never own one.

    What an experience with Alexa:

    I asked her to put the movie "50 Shades of Gray" on TV, an R-rated movie.

    When I got to the next meeting, I found out she had reported me to the elders.

    I'm getting rid of Alexa once and for all.

    Alexa wants to talk to your elders

    "I wonder when watchtower will get a 'special deal's for all dubs with Alexa so that they can get the *daily text,"

    Actually, there is an optional skill that enables Alexa to read you todays Daytext. ...... I guess it was created by some enterprising dub.
