Previous models, and only after malicious physical access. The only thing it listens for is one of four names for itself, under normal circumstances. Re HomePod, hmm. So many more smart devices support Amazon/Google.

Multi Room Music SDK section here, for early next year: . Sonos would have to support it, though.

I can't draw to save my life. I sometimes mark up written text, yes, but mostly I use it for planning via . I wrote about that:

My understanding is that an Amazon API update is coming to allow that very thing (i.e. for Sonos/etc devices to be candidates for multi-room music via Alexa.)

Dot isn't meant for playback at all (we have one in the living room, but use the Sonos for music). This new Echo is great as a music machine, as long as you're not trying to fill a big room.

I made fun of Smart Home stuff recently, and you'd be _outraged_ at the state of things here now. I'm sure it's not as bad as at your own house, but still.

Just cost, after getting the PlayBase. Heavy discounts on Echo devices at the moment, and I also like the aesthetic of this one.

We do love schnauzers. Several in the park here.

Thanks! I still find it strange that, in the previous photos, Whisky is in the same position as in the mockup render. I didn't pose him, and the render was prepared weeks earlier. 🤔

It isn't that it's incorrect per se; by the nature of computers, it's very often accurate. But it sounds tech-illiterate nonetheless. Substitute terms depend on context, whether it's CPU/processor, graphics hardware/card, RAM/memory, and so on.

Tech hardware reviews/stories that use the word "chips", even if appropriate = your grandad discovering "electronic mail" and "the World Wide Web".

While I do think that cameras are on a different tier of potential intrusion than microphones, the distinction is indeed arbitrary. Convenience sometimes take precedence over risks to privacy.

Surprisingly good sound from this little thing. A new addition to my office.

👍 Green tea has caffeine, but there are decaf variants. I like the taste of coffee, and while decaf is a long way from regular stuff, I've become used to it.

Thank you! It's coming along well, after a slow period. Hoping to have it out by spring.
