I flipped on my Kindle this morning as I usually do to automatically download my newspapers.
On the way to the train I heard a Siri-like voice coming from my backpack, but it was male.
At first I thought it was one of my two iPhones and then possibly my GPS which I take with me when I travel.
I dug and dug into I heard “Your New York Times Subscription.”. My Kindle was talking to me.
I wasn’t surprised Bezos snuck a voice guide in there. I was more surprised there was no heads up. That dude’s voice was annoying, the kind you hear on subways in New York.
I turned the voice off immediately and went on my way. Let the voice guide wars begin.
