I've been watching the announcements coming out of CES, and I'm torn. I love the idea of smart homes, cars, and devices. The problem here is that Google and Amazon are dominating that market, and neither have any respect for personal privacy. I want projects like Mycroft to compete here, but they're not even a blip on the radar right now. Right now, it looks like winner of the battle between the two titans will control our information in the future. We don't get a say.

@mike agreed. I dont dislike the idea of a smart home. Just dont like big companies like google watching me 24/7 so they can sell to advertisers to find better ways to make me buy things I dont need 😏
