    I wouldn't have one if you paid me but it is definitely mass-market. Most people I know have one.

    Oh I don't know, our Alexa was pretty expensive...we named our, now 36 year old, daughter Alexa...as you can imagine they don't own one of the Amazon knock offs.

    I must admit though to using ok Google in car to operate my phone, works great with Spotify.

    It's not such a big problem, unless you are planning to go out and murder a couple of people and bury their bodies under a tarpaulin, I think.

    No I suppose you are right. It's clear the great mass of people have no privacy concerns whatsoever, otherwise Facebook wouldn't even exist.

    Looks good, might well do that Dave, though for the benefit of Alexa, I don't really need to dispose of a corpse.
