Google is a total

20 Mar

fool for doing this. If it wasn’t the CEO, the idiot who did this ought to be fired. If is was the CEO, the board should fire him. Probably he should be fired anyway–this happened on his watch.

This is just stupider than crap. Google Home is already rather intrusive, and having it play ads is a sure-fire way to make sure that current users get rid of it (there was one such post in the comments) or never get it in the first place.

In any case, a firing for gross incompetence is called for. This was just stupid. Who was the idiot who thought this was a good idea?

    You’re really worked up about this. What’s the big deal?

    Google has always tried new and different things across their entire portfolio. They are quick to adapt and if their market doesn’t like a particular feature they drop it.

      OK, it’s just a little pinprick. There’ll be no more AHHH but you may feel a little sick… That will keep you going through the show. You are only coming through in waves. Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying… And I have become comfortably numb.

      And here you thought my mis-spent youth would never be an asset! I never did drugs, but some friends of mine were in a band and played a lot of …interesting… music.
