The March 2016 issue of Popular Mechanics has a brand-new column in it: Technology with Baba Booey. His debut entry is about voice recognition software. Surprise, surprise: the guy who needs all his books read to him prefers to dictate his texts rather than type them out. It features an especially toothy photo of MaMa Monkey screeching at an Amazon Echo as though it was the Monolith in 2001. He says he prefers to dictate his texts in his car, rather than at the office. And he informs us that Amazon Echo's Alexa has a sense of humor. He recalls a time -- presumably after getting told by Marci to leave the office and go to his car if he insists on dictating his texts -- when he said to his Amazon Echo, "Alexa, you're such a bitch." Alexa said, "That's not very nice," so Gary apologized to his machine. I thinks it's safe to assume that Alexa now gets a bigger piece of chicken at dinner than the submissive beta male Gary does.
