I don’t have an Alexa. I’m afraid of ’em.  Unless I can program my own personal C3PO, I don’t trust that something is there listening to my every word.
Just this weekend, however, I had my new airpods in my ears, playing Pink Floyd, and I thought, “What if Siri is always listening to me?”
“Siri, turn the volume up.”
She effing responded and incremented the volume up!
At first I grinned at how cool that was.  Then I frowned because it meant I was being listened to already.
Maybe that’s just when I had the airpods on.  I just asked my phone (Siri) to load Twitter.  Nothing happened.
