We'd better start being nicer to them.
Forthwith some advice to self...
When Alexa announces that she has set my timer for seven minutes while I boil pasta, I will tell her thank you.
When my car navigation tells me to proceed to the route and/or make a u-turn RIGHT NOW, I will resist swearing and instead will obey.
I will stop spilling things on my keyboard, dropping my phone, and reading my Kindle in the bath.
Oh, also on my mind (and related): the book I wrote about a super cute AI named Chloe taking over the world -- More Than Stardust -- is coming out July 9th. It's pre-orderable now.
