My favorite toy of late is a free smartphone app......google assistant. Getting my smartphone to provide info without going through my password/face recognition....without doing a bunch of finger typing or finding the right icon......makes a smartphone so much smarter. ok google (or whatever you choose as your catch phrase) puts the app to work.......so, ok google, how do you say 'evidence' in thai language.......takes my phone from sleep mode to the answer without as much as pressing a button/key. ok google, turn on/off my flashlight.....my tv........my last podcast......my music........or, naturally, ok google what's 25 times 2.54 or what's 30,000 baht in dollars? or......call my wife or call Mike or call the vet. Hundreds of others.

Mind numbing IMHO. Personal choices but after maybe a month of having automated news feeds and other 'handy' little helpers, I disabled anything that google thinks I need on my smartphone to give me what it thinks I need to read, see and hear. Right now, I don't need any assistance.
