I don't get why anyone would buy an Alexa or any device like it. Seems a little too weird for me, some computer always actively listening. Information is power and I think Google will use it however they need to.

Me neither. I think people buy it to show off, it's a "must have" item that does neat tricks. It's a fun toy to show off how modern and tech-savy you are. But it has few actual uses, and many potential harms.
