Seeing all these people getting Alexas and similar devices, I don't understand why people willfully install listening (or possible listening) devices in their homes with so little benefit to them

@immychan I can fully understand a nerd or hacker setting up a listening device that they themselves control fully, but it surprises me a bit when they use these ones that are controlled by untrustworthy outside entities.

@jeffalyanak I totally agree, but then again it's mostly not nerds who are buying these, I think nerds understand the consequences of having an always on listening device a little better
