Will they be delivered by the Amazon drone fleet that was supposed to be bringing me my packages by now? Good old drones. What ever happened to them? Based on what I read on this very website not two years ago, by now the very sun itself should be darkened by a thick web of drones careening hither and yon across the sky, but I digress. This product launch has the whiff of utter and complete failure all over it, and not because of any concerns over privacy. The problem here, and it is a rather large one, is that these products are stupid. They are dumb. They are flat our ridiculous and nobody is going to buy them, and the few who do will use them for a month, realize how shitty they are, and promptly throw them in the garbage. I have said this previously and continue to maintain it, Amazon is way too dumb to have evil intent. I am very much in the pro privacy camp but I gotta say on my list of top 100 privacy concerns, Amazon comes in at about 150, and it is exactly because of shit like this product launch. So dumb. I mean come on. wtf is that crap stuff? what exactly is the value proposition for an Alexa ring? Who did the market survey that determined there are actual people alive on the planet at this very moment that would wear a fucking ring with a stupid fucking computer with a name in it, that can buy shit for you, or turn on your lights, or open your freakin garage door, or start your car on a cold morning so your pansy ass doesn’t freeze off. And the best part is you get it to do all these things for you by talking to your finger, because it is in your ring, your piece of shit, ugly ass ring. Fuckin sweet, dude. I love it. My God man. It’s full of stars.
