After spending a good part of the weekend with my 12-year-old daughter (who loves baking and making truffles) beginning work on a new app for Amazon‘s Alexa to assist cooks with their inventory, shopping, and cooking, I was excited and optimistic not only about the app but the quality time with my daughter — we already spend time cooking and learning to code. This morning, I was most interested in a new article on Forbes — An Honest Review of Google Home and Amazon’s Alexa by Jay McGregor.
Until I saw that piece of shizzle write this:
“the kitchen aide that I assumed Home would be is less sous chef and more trainee irritant … What would be helpful is if it automatically added said ingredients to your shopping list.”
Thanks, douchebag, for inspiring countless others to become our instant competition. Competition without the constraints of “Father/daughter who can dev when they’re done with school, work, other family activities, homework, etc.”
- If I see McGregor on the street, he’s getting punched in the face
- Now, we’ll be extra motivated to make sure ours is not only awesome but vastly superior to all those coming before us because I’ll be damned if I’m giving up on this idea and crushing my daughter’s (or my) entrepreneurial and creative spirit.
Normally, I would be loathe to write about such a project here, but since this pile of putrid penises already told the world what a great idea it would be, I may as well.
