Hey Alexa, start my car...


'Hey Alexa, start my car':

Ford announces plans to have 20 million vehicles equipped with Amazon's smart assistant by 2020.
Drivers of Ford vehicles will soon be able to talk to their cars, demanding anything from a nearby cheeseburger to a weather forecast.

The car firm has joined forces with Amazon to implement the technology firm's personal assistant, Alexa, into its cars over the next three years.

The alliance comes as many of Ford's rivals, including General Motors and Mercedes-Benz, have introduced smart assistants in their vehicles.
Besides wasting fuel, this will make people even lazier.


Evidently people don't understand that this thing listens to everything, and I mean everything...

As if Smart phones weren't bad enough...

For me, the captain just about sums it up...
