Insane that anyone has those stupid fucking robots in their homes. Everyone got so worked up over the Xbox kinnect having a mic and then just volunteered to have a recording device connected to a store and your credit card. Insane to me. Just so you can talk and have a robot play music for you

Great Episode

This was a really funny episode. As far as the Starbucks training goes if it stops these stupid incidents then it’s got to be worth it.

Starbucks did more than other companies do when an employee does something racist. I'm not going to shit on them for that.

The bar is low but at least they even have a bar.

I think it's great that corporations care about shareholder bottom line. They'll hire a marketing firm to spin a public relations disaster like this; so that consumer attitude is swayed enough to affect the real cause for change - the bottom line.

Two black men arrested by six cops, for doing nothing, should be a bigger conversation. 'Starbucks closed today' is not a solution. It's skimming over racism in a supposed post-racial world.

Not that many people got worked up about Kinect because it had a mic. Most people got worked up because it was shitty, even more because Microsoft wanted to force them to buy something they didn't want (that was also shitty), and a few people because it had a camera.

I oppose shit like the Patriot Act and believe people have a right to privacy, but I'm not a very private person and I'd sit naked in front of Kinect no problem and I have Echoes that listen to me 24/7 and I barely use them and I don't care.
