Yeah “Alexa” would comprise its voice recordings, since that’s part of the service. And you access them through the Alexa app. The best parallel I could think of was Google; how you don’t have to spell out “Google’s search engine...” for people to understand.

Sorry to ruin your attempt at a dunk, but I meant my plain old non-smart doorbell. I don’t have a Nest, just a lot of social anxiety lol.

Your friend is a real one, holy crap I’m going to remember that trick.

I can see why you’d think that (I honestly did for a while too), but nope they’re completely separate from each other. Imgur was created with Reddit users specifically in mind, but is still an independent project.

Thanks for the catch! Grabbed the wrong dateline, though I’ll admit I’ve lost faith in my sense of time ever since someone reminded me Captain Marvel came out this year.

It’s ironic you’d call that last paragraph an attack, considering it simply refers to sentiments the president has expressed multiple times. I guess saying “Trump literally said this” is a partisan statement now.

Shoot, I meant to include that distinction. Yep, you’re correct - they were only discontinued in American markets.

Thanks, appreciate it! Homonyms are going to be the death of me I swear.

Redundant =/ incorrect though. It’s definitely a colloquialism, I’ll give you that, but a grammatically sound one.

There’s nothing grammatically incorrect about that sentence though...?

I mean, a pair of wired Apple headphones costs like $10-$20. With that in mind I’d definitely consider opting for the $200 pair (not to mention an additional $70 every time you lose one, and you will) to be a splurge.

Facebook’s been quiet so far on how this change might affect groups or pages with lots of engagement, though I wouldn’t be surprised if this round of testing is also them trying to figure out if a one-size approach fits the platform or if they need to tailor how/when Likes are hidden in those specific cases.

I agree that anyone selling known-hazardous product to customers should be held accountable. Outlets can’t exactly post up a reporter at every flea market in the nation, though, thus the reporting on some of the biggest and/or most widespread cases, i.e. this article. Read more

Thanks for sharing! Looks like its stream went down (I hope everything’s alright) but I’ll add it to the list if it comes back up

Sales from Dollar Tree and E-bay don’t make up half of America’s e-commerce market. And several of those examples don’t advertise what their selling as in-house products, whereas Amazon sells its Prime merch alongside listings from third-party vendors and the difference isn’t immediately obvious for a lot of consumers.
