    The Siri on my iPhone is set to Australian male; default American female is too generic.

    You have to PAY to put that object into your home where it becomes a spy that sends EVERYTHING it hears back to its masters “so they can evaluate the interactions and try to improve them.” In other words: It’s a SPY. That YOU have to pay for. As cute as this cartoon is, it is ALSO celebrating yet another chink in our personal privacy.

    Seems like I already have plenty of bills to pay why create another one by having Siri ?

    I’d like to be able to change the name to Pussycat.

    Then I could ask “♪What’s new, pussycat? Woah, woah♫”

    The Smart Phone is also a spy, so turn it off when you are home.

    Anyone who thinks they have any privacy are delusional.

    I thought Siri was just on iPhones. I guess not. (I am an android person) That product looks like an early version of what goes by the name of Alexa.

    Yes Muffin, I agree. And I hate it when someone on TV gives an Alexa order. Mine won’t shut up for ten minutes.

    For all those out there that are paranoid, also stop using checks and debit/credit cards, and don’t use a computer

    My new car now has Google’s Android Automotive infotainment software system. I can give voice commands to the car for non-driving features, like climate control, music control, even texting (although I never use it for that). It is a good safety feature for the first two so I can turn on/off the A/C or pause a song without looking down at the dash or taking my hand from the wheel. I don’t think Google is going to do me much harm by learning that I like it cool in the car when it’s 90 outside.

    My daughter has Hugh Jackman’s voice on her GPS when we need it. Very nice…

    My grandson hacked my Siri so I can listen to other homes.

    Boy, you should hear what people say when they think no one is around.

    It’s hard to imagine the Australian word for “master”. It’s not that kind of place.
