Just by itself, it's already terrifying.

It'd be more terrifying if I had something interesting to say.

The Echo Show interesting anyone?

On first blush I found this frightening, but as I read on, I think there's an argument for letting skill developers set up revenue streams.

People don't want ads, they want the skill development they wouldn't have otherwise.

Or they don't, which means the concept will kill itself because no one will use skills with ads.

I fully admit, I don't use any skills.

Realized "election" can be close enough to wake.

She's not that bad at realizing when she's been woken by mistake, but I feel she's gotten less sensitive in general. The incidence of me needing to repeat commands has noticeably risen.
