    "This month, some of those Berkeley researchers published a research paper that went further, saying they could embed commands directly into recordings of music or spoken text. So while a human listener hears someone talking or an orchestra playing, Amazonís Echo speaker might hear an instruction to add something to your shopping list."

    Yeah, I don't trust computers to do much for me other than what I directly tell them to do - through a keyboard or mouse click. I absolutely hate having to give voice commands to any machine. And I don't trust cars to do stuff for me - I don't even want an automatic transmission in the car my wife doesn't drive.

    Maybe it has something to do with me spending 40 years in the computer industry and studying comp.risks for so many years.
