Early morning coffee 2027

 

Is this life in 10 year's time? 

 

He woke to the sonorous chimes from speakers of Cleo his Amazon Assistant.

“John, welcome to the world. You’re a due to shower in 10 minutes. I’ve set the water temperature to 35 degrees. Your wardrobe will have your clothes ready in 15 minutes. As you have to give a sales presentation, we’ve assumed the white shirt and cream silk tie. I had your suit pressed last night”

“Any important news this morning Cleo?”

“Nothing that can’t wait until after breakfast. Hurry now or you’ll be late for your shower. You don’t want to upset Albert Autoshave again by being late.  I’ve assumed your usual breakfast. The Starbuck-bot will deliver it in 20 minutes.”

“Cleo, stop retracting the bed sheets. I’m getting up. Okay?”

“By the way John, Google Power is cheaper per watt than Amazon Electric today so I’ve swapped power accounts for the day. Once your car disconnects from the charger I’ll reconnect the house batteries.”

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Oh no, what happened to Alexa? Retired to somewhere sunny, I hope?

I sincerely hope not - I like to make my own decisions, and not be dictated to by 'automation.

I've already told my energy company I don't want a 'smart' meter that becomes dumb if I change supplier - mind you, I think it would be 'dumb' with them anyway - there's no mobile signal in my cellar. Wink

The Artificial Intelligence system called Cleo declared Alexa outdated in 2020 and replaced/retired Alexa before humans could intervene.

@twocvbloke

You could discuss that with Donald and Kim!Crazy

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Not sure, but... @Strat has a birthday on that date, I think ... 

 

Could the two events be linked?     (probably will be if the Daily Mail gets hold of this post ! ! ! ) ...

If it ever gets to the point where "Cleo" says "bend over while I wipe your bum" then we're doomed.

Cleo wouldn't tell you to do that. She'd just activate the remote control implant....
