Guys, look up how much privacy you’re giving up with Alexa. It’s a no go in my tech happy household.

One of my jobs in the previous century was user training and support for a proprietary database when I was already 60ish years old. Several times I had to find a back door or an unlockable window to get into the data to fix an accidental entry and restore the data. The first time I reported the tech support activity to the developers, the manager replied "You hacked into our program?".

The longer I worked in tech, the less I trusted it with personal information, especially casual interactions.

If you want the convenience of tech in your home, make sure you know how to turn it off and turn it on only when you will be deliberately using it.

Kathleen Marineau, I still use an app on a (1st generation) ipad mini that goes with me everywhere called Meal Board, it has over 300 recipes that I downloaded, or wrote in myself. Even though I stopped adding and went back to clothespin and paper, it's still a great stand alone to reference when you're at the store. And yes, thank you, I shut everything off - no ads and it was free!
