It's a very neat bit of minimalist tech design but ultimately redundant - everything it does can be done by something else and by you if you're not a complete f***ing pillock. (Oh f***, yeah, the dog's in the vets, completely slipped my mind.)

I found myself wanting one (despite the ad) but couldn't work out why? When I did a modicum of research, I quickly came to the opinion above.

On a related note, why is it that every bit of tech wants to be your personal f***ing organiser these days? I was completing a survey the other day and one question went something like "I could not live my life without my mobile device organising things for me" and I wondered why the f*** anyone would have allowed their situation to degrade to that point.

That said, siri will be my best mate when the alzheimers really kicks in, so swings and roundabouts.

"Siri what am I doing today?"

"Siri, what's my name again?"

"Siri, I done a poo"




Should be called srsly?

I don't have sky in my kitchen. Sky has adverts, long pieces on things I don't need to know about, headlines every half an hour or so.

You need two devices to play radio and 24hr news? How quaint...

How would you go about slaying James Blunt? Sharp, blunt, it's an ironic dreamland.

Agree on the personal organiser thing. Fad, just like the filofax craze. By the time my schedule had been read out I'd forget it again.

its all about listening and learning about what you do and placing items and ads at times you think you need them.

"i just heard you say you ran out of toilet roll would you like me to order you some?"

amazon know they can have you buy it in bulk and have it shipped within 24 hours.

It will get worse with ad placements as it looks at your calendar and sees football practice on saturday so you see fold up chairs and shipments of gatorade for $20

When you've run out of toilet paper, 24 hours is an awful long time
