    • I've found that selecting a large baker type potato, for "sock use", makes an excellent dog deterrent, or for conking someone that needs an attitude adjustment. You can either bake the evidence and eat it, or, if feeling charitable, give it away to someone who will gladly dispose of the evidence for you. I wielded one many times when I had two paper routes as a young boy, even smacked a hippie once who tried to jack my bicycle. I hit him so hard with a giant Baker that it knocked him down. Not too bad for a 12 year old....

    • Here is my guesstimating, thinking the Rockefellers, Bill Gates, etc are paying for this.They have billion$ of dollar$, a few millions of dollar$ is just a drop in the bucket for them. Not to mention these Alexa devices are eves dropping/ listening in your conversation all the time at your dwelling. Imagin talking to family member/s, friend/s, business partner/s about some idea, then you find out it was stolen from you, right under you noses. Inventions are stolen from people all the time, it’s the registered patten that counts the most, even then you better register the patten in almost every country, if you want to protect your ideas. Even iPhones & ipads are listening devices , someone is listening if not recording every word your saying.  Freedom, what freedom, their is non, we are tied to an invincible rope if you think your not your highly mistaken. IMHO !
    • The thing I like to ask the people who are so enthralled with this tech....So this technology is so very useful, powerful, and can basically run your life for you, it was designed and developed is maintained, expanded and improved constantly....but...the "service" is free and only requires a purchase of under $50 or is simply part of the free phone your cellphone provider handed you. Who paid for this and continues to? How does something like this become a billion dollar industry by charging nothing?
