    With the addition of a camera, Amazon’s new Echo Look device can now see and hear all. The device is a sort of standalone selfie machine so users can take full-length photos and videos of themselves specifically for the sake of checking their fashion choices in the morning.

    I’m always worried that as I get older my inner-curmudgeon will lead to me not getting technology in the same way I did when I was younger. This device sounds a little like something from a dystopian novel, right? A device that can take photos, videos, and listen at all times … that they recommend you put in your bedroom?

    I like the Echo for many things. But an added camera is a bridge too far. That is some "Black Mirror" shit.

  7. Creepy.

    I have an Echo Dot but I keep it off when I'm not using it. I also sort of regret buying it, since I hardly ever use it

    If THE CIRCLE comes true, we might as well just find bunkers or live in caves.
