In this episode of Mobile Talk, Donn interviews Mark to learn more about technologies like the Echo and its various incarnations—technology that is an ever-present assistant much like the computer in Star Trek that responded whenever someone simply said its name out loud.

Check the next post for a bonus track: a sampling of interaction between Mark and Alexa, including times when she misunderstood him.

UPDATE: Note a very serious response to all the interest in the technology we discuss on this issue. Gizmodo flat out says don’t buy any of these things. It’s a very real concern. Thanks to Audrey Williams for bringing this to our attention!
