I still can't fathom any reason why anyone would want these devices in their home. I hear stupid rationalizations that really don't pan out. Like "it's convenient" or "it saves me time from having to something myself", which is basically people with a totally bloated sense of their importance and value of their time. So, you're so busy that you don't have 15 seconds to do an internet search or visit a website? Clicks of buttons are suddenly so time-exhaustive, and physically and mentally draining that you need a machine to do it for you. Flipping a light switch too much work? I don't get it. People want to act like they need all this shit because they're keeping up with the Joneses or because they are oh-so-busy-and-important that they can't exist without a piece of technology like this, when in reality, its mostly because human beings are mistaking total fucking laziness with convenience (yes, there's a difference). How many of these people with these devices in their homes are just laying on their couch like tubs of lard or on their computers doing nothing productive, picking their schnoz, reading rants like mine on YouTube, and do really have the time to do the shit that this Alexa (and similar devices) do? And is it worth having something constantly listening to everything in your household and doing who-knows-what with it really worth saving the time of getting off your lazy duffs and flipping a switch, or pressing a few buttons, or typing a few words? I don't think it is. This shit is straight up creepy 1984 type shit and people think it's so cool and impressive, and I felt it as soon as these devices started hitting the market. I'm not some total neo-luddite, but for fucks sake, how are so many people thinking that this kind of shit is legit? Totally don't get it. Creepy stuff. Rant finished.

Well don't forget about what Julian Assange has revealed. Not just Alexa, but your smart TV, smartphones, your smart watches, your smart cars, your own government. The only way to limit when these smart devices are listening to you is to throw them into a sealed lead box whenever you want your privacy at night. Otherwise, you just have to accept the fact that someone is listening and watching you at ALL times. Even you unplug the cord or remove the "battery", there are tiny little battery in the circuit so small you won't know what to look for which keeps enough power to continuously transmit and receive signal. This is 2019, if we can clone people and play God through gene editing, send people to space and find black holes, then being able to listen and watch every person on earth should be a piece of cake for those who need to know your every whereabouts.

Yet the sheep will continue to buy this, Google Home and certain smart devices that listen in. Also use apps like facebook and instagram that do exactly the same thing. Look at the permissions these apps ask for - access to your microphone AND camera as well as all your video, photo and other files AND your personal phonebook. You have sleepwalked into 1984 and you aren't even concerned. Me? I will NEVER use any of these things. And don't get me started on 5g...

You can't see the forest for the trees. At this point, these home products like Alexa are optional and there are many more under this umbrella. If you want to forfeit your rights to gadgets, then have at it, but don't cast aspersions on those of us who think twice about elective technologies. Cellphones really aren't elective anymore. I have always disabled the webcams in my laptops and now I rarely have to use my laptop, unless I am literally coding something. Some of us understand technology and have made thoughtful decisions about what technology we choose to adopt and under what societal and governmental rules have to be in place before. adoption. Right now it's the wild wild west on privacy and government overreach. My black ass does not need to voluntarily give any government entity more information than they already have on me.
