  1. A "flaw"?Yeah right…"Big Brother" is always finding ways to listen to people,they just got caught this time so the company said it was a "flaw"…I would not have any of those "smart" devices in my house,they are creepy IMO…my smartphone is bad enough with all my data being recorded…and I felt that way before all that stuff came out about Alexa laughing for no reason…now THAT was creepy….AI is not our friend and is not helping us…

  2. I am glad that the maker of the Skill decided to let Amazon know before releasing their Skill. I have the Echo and I am not paranoid. Now the patents both companies have applied for goes against their purported interest in our trust and privacy, but we shall see what happens on this front. I still like having the Device it really is a useful device.
