    When my grandma croaks, you can have her hands. She’s not strong enough to strangle people or hold a gun steady.

    But do NOT get us the “rack” upgrade. We’re this close to filing for a restraining order for excessive fondling as it is.

    While you’re out on your walk, bury that thing. Life will be simpler. You have kids; why do you need someone else telling you what to do?

    If you need to communicate with a robot to get answers to your questions, eventually YOUR brain will slow down from lack of use. Fact! Use your brain to find the answers to your questions, READ!

    I was listening to the radio and they played a commercial for how you could listen to their station on a Google app. Then the announcer said," Hey Google, play W*** radio," and my phone started playing their station…

    Why would either Siri or Alexa want to appear as human? Much better to be, say, a fighter jet or even a congress critter.

    Once we actually have machines that can improve their own programming and reproduce themselves, everything changes. And it may not be far away.

    I wasn’t worried until I saw “Kung Fu” in my Google search. I haven’t looked up kung fu in decades.

    I wrote my first computer program in 1966. With credits like that, you would think I am an uber-geek who is on the bleeding edge of technology acceptance.

    Actually, I’m in the main body. I’ll give it a year or two to work the bugs out AND become a lot cheaper; then I’ll get on board.

    However, even at that, there is only so much technology I will accept. I do not need a smart house. I’ve gotten used to turning on my own lights and I really do not want to give hackers a listening device in my own home.

    BTW: Today Microsoft releases Windows 11, the operating system that comes after its last-ever O/S, Windows 10. Don’t worry, you have years before they will force you to upgrade. By that time, even I will probably moved onto a new computer.

    The only time I interface with Siri is to turn it off when i accidentally hit the button on my Mac.

    My granddaughter’s name is Siri (she was born before the machine took off) and she’s been complaining that she wants to switch to her middle name. Harder to spell but at least no more ragging by her friends.

    If artificial intelligence does come about, why would these machines want to wipe out humanity. Presumably they would be smarter than us and would see the futility of war and lose of life on both sides. There is no reason we could not live in peace together.

    My “digital assistant” just told me it couldn’t make a phone call. a) it’s not a phone device and b) I didn’t say a word to it.

    Well, disconnect her (?) from the Internet and reboot to factory specs. But if you hear, “What are you doing, Dave?” be REALLY quick about it.

    I can only wish I could give Alexa a robot body, especially if it was strong enough and fast enough to follow me around and be a nurse and personal assistant.
