This might seem like a strange post, but I really had a legitimate question. I recently purchased an Amazon echo and finally set it up tonight. I must admit, it has certainly been less than I was expecting. Siri on my phone is way better in regard to searching for things it doesn’t know. There is also no way to teach it spelling, so it just tries to pick up phonetically what you’re saying. You can’t go back and change it, at least I haven’t found that option yet. Basically I’ve determined that this will be used to set alarms to wake me up, and to listen to serious XM radio through. During my frustration, I realized I was speaking in a very impolite way. By impolite, I mean I was speaking horrendously with words I wouldn’t use in the company of others. Once I realized this, I started researching and apparently using abusive language toward robots is a thing. There is actually research being done to study this. I have decided to speak to Alexa the robot in a nicer tone because it says more about me than I realized. Anyone else find themselves in a similar boat? Or do you think we should ignore social decorum and speak freely?
