I understand where you're coming from. I wouldn't get one either. But that being said, I have other items in my house that do the hello siri/google thing, and laptops have cameras and microphones. TV's that have microphones in them as well. Not to mention with everything being wireless it can be snooped upon as well. Not to mention posts on forums and social media these days also. I don't consider myself interesting enough to be spied upon. I don't really see it (or the coming Apple variant) as a fad gadget. Besides, you know what they say: It's not really paranoia if they are coming to get you.
