Jambox

I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY like this little box. Terrific sound. Connected wirelessly to an iPad or computer–terrific.

But last night it was infuriating! In the middle of the night it decided to run out of battery power. At that point it started to talk to us saying something like Hal did in the movie “2001: A Space Odyssey” that “i’m going to die” or something like that. That voice in the Jambox woke up everyone in the house.

Why oh why do people make machines which talk to people as if they expect people to believe the machine is a people?
