So, plays tunes you own, alarm clocks stuff you set and listens to everything you say 24/7

Sounded like a s**t idea when I first heard of it.

Still does.

AIUI The excuse for the always on internet requirement is the "cloud" based voice recognition, but TBH this sounds pretty s**t.

So it's a voice activated, wireless linked (I'm presuming otherwise you'd have to lay cable to it) media player that syncs with your diary and can have triggerable alarms.

That might be a product I'd want to buy, without the always on link stuff everything I say to a remote server site.
