I hate the future
@ilovecomputers I'm sorry but I just find this hilarious
@ilovecomputers Holy crap this is hilarious
@ilovecomputers depressing as fuck.
One more reason to not have Alexa.
@ilovecomputers the way modern technology is designed is absolutely toxic to brain development.
I'm too far gone now.
@ilovecomputers OH THIS SUCKS
@ilovecomputers god this is horrifying
@ilovecomputers alexa, for once make something good for dinner
@ilovecomputers This just emphasizes the trend of Roombas and autoflush toilets. Inventors making a thing to do the stuff their mother did for them. <joke>
@ilovecomputers cyberpunk is now old man
@ilovecomputers hahah I'm not sure if that's better or worse than the video I saw of a kid who didn't respond to her name but did respond if you said alexa
@ilovecomputers the first mistake that mom made was bringing that Alexa device into their home. I’ll never understand how people can feel at ease around them.
@ilovecomputers And I thought MY childhood was poisoned by technology...
@ilovecomputers "Alexa, quit talking."
@ilovecomputers What's interesting is that these devices are synonymous with "technology" or "progress" in the eyes of the public. To dislike them is to be a Luddite; even if you're actually a tech enthusiast and even if the devices in question use fairly standard methods.
@ilovecomputers question is would we be okay with it if the line was "computer, play baby shark"
@ilovecomputers This reminds me of the (real or not, I found it funny and a bit creepy) anecdote of toddlers using "Don't forget to subscribe!" as a generic sentence meaning "goodbye".
@ilovecomputers not funny
