    I don’t understand why people keep billing this Alexa offering as “creepy”. I lost my last living grandparent when I was in college almost 25 years ago now, and I’d love to be able to hear her voice again. To me, this technology could be creepy, but you have to decide to go that direction with it. For me, it would be a wonderful way to remember friends and family who were gone too soon.
