Amazon Announces New Alexa-Controlled Microwave Oven

Amazon Announces New Alexa-Controlled Microwave Oven:  Amazon has officially gotten into the kitchen appliance market with its new $59.99 Alexa-controlled microwave oven.  Analysts say its the perfect item those who feel that having to push three or four buttons to cook a meal is just way too much work.  Unfortunately, it appears folks will still have to get their butts up off the couch and physically put the food into the microwave if they want it cooked.  Now I ask you, where is the justice in that?

Bill Cosby Attorneys Argue He’s Legally Blind:  In court during his sentencing hearing, Bill Cosby’s attorneys argued that he should receive the lightest possible sentence because he’s legally blind.  OK, he may be legally blind, but you know what - I still wouldn’t advise going on a blind date with him.

First Photos From the Surface of an Asteroid Released:  Following the successful deployment of a pair of tiny rovers from Japan’s Hayabusa-2 spacecraft, the first color images from an asteroid’s surface have been send back to Earth.  Wow, interesting!  It looks a lot like a huge chunk of rock that’s hurling through space.  Who knew?  Anyway, all kidding aside, I suppose we should congratulate the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) - you rock - literally!

Johnny, it really sucks when your childhood turns into a farce ... I remember so clearly as a young guy laughing our eyes out at the Go-Carts bit Cosby used to about baby coaches, sitting in Trancas Canyon after surfing Zuma all day. Now it turns out he is the biggest jackass on the planet, basically Kim Jung Un meet Roman Polanski. So disappointing ... even nostalgia is not what it used to be.

All good points - I was a fan too, going back to 8th grade.

Alexa doesn't only cook...
She's watching and reporting your every move:

Back around 1968, a be bop jazz musician/high school janitor I knew, who was about 25 years older than myself, always covered his TV with a black pillow case when not in use.

We'd hang out at his place sometimes on a weekend night. People would drop in, sit by the 24/7 embers of his fireplace, and talk.

He warned us that "they" will be watching us all the time in the future. He was regarded as a nut outside the hipster community of jazz musicians.

But he wasn't.

He was a friend of my best friend's dad, also a well traveled be-bop player. It was a lifetime away from the high school crowd I'd see again on Monday.
