Big Brother Says "Good Night"

Eddie and I got a Google Home Hub. There are many reasons we wanted it in general and one reason in specific - if has a button to turn off the microphone.

Because we all know that Siri, Alexa, Google, they all hear everything and send it to the big database in the sky (or Iceland).  But once you actually have the piece of hardware in your house, you forget it is there and don't always turn the mike off.

So then last Sunday night we were getting ready for bed and Ed was picking up Trevor from his bed.  He said, as you do when you have a dog, "Come on Buddy, it's bedtime."

And the google home hub says, "Good Night". And it freaked both Ed and I out. Trevor didn't mind and I wonder if he and google speak when we are out.
