It was a joke.
On my way between the covers last night, I told our Google Home Assistant to turn off the bedroom lamp. Which, of course, she did.
Google’s still a she at our place because the option to choose a male voice isn’t available in Canada yet. As soon as it is, I’m switching that sucker to he. Ideally, a he with a non-Canadian accent.
How amazing would that be? A deep voice with a sexy accent reminding me that I had a 2 P.M. dentist appointment — I might even keep the appointment 🙂
Where was I?
Right, last night.
Lamp goes off, I snuggle into my pillow and on a whim I said, “Okay, Google. Goodnight.”
and Holy Crap!
Google said, “Good Night, Aimer.”
I cracked up laughing and then, of course, I had to do it again because — this piece of silver mesh and plastic was talking to me.
Sci-fi writers have been publishing books about humans falling for their robots for years now — I’m thinking dress Google up, slap an accent on him …
His name is Nigel 🙂
