Also, just curious as to the quality of the audio whil my ass is sitting on it , or it's in my pants or jacket or any of the other common places a cell phone may find itself. I am totally on board with hating the fact that a cell phone is a 24x7 spyware device. What I'm not on board with is having a 24x7 spyware device that I have an option not to buy.
I will never purchase an echo, home or anything else that I cannot verify it doesn't phone home.
I recently started buying ZWave switches and Insteon switches and using OpenHab. Im sorry, but if you want a 100% spyware device that is mainly used to sell your personal information to advertisers, and occationanal LEO suponeas... GO FUCK YOURSELF
