Google Home, Google Home Mini, Google Hub, ChromeCast, Google WiFi... what are you buying or not buying? And why?

  • I considered google wifi but it was too costly plus I don’t feel safe with Google owning all my data and internet.

    I use Apple Hardware (HomePods, iPhone, MacBook, Apple TV, Apple Watch). Don't need any of that smart Alexa / Google shit.

      Yeah, and I like most of our products, just not our hardware and all that stuff

      I doubt you can buy anything from there.. they don't sell to consumers. In the other hand I don't work there

    I bought the Google WiFi, it's pretty great at mesh. Also I use Android phones. After that I try to stay away from big brother.

    Zero chance I’d buy anything from google/fb/amazon. I don’t trust any of their shit anywhere with their data mining, massive privacy invasions, and selling the data to the gov.

      So...where do you buy things from? How do you use the internet (or do you?) And I assume you don't shop at grocery stores or own a cell phone right?

      You shouldn't buy any cell phone either because all cell carriers sell your data to government as well. Welcome to the Stone Age!

      Newsflash: Nobody cares about you. Even if you voluntarily give all of your personal information, nobody cares. Seriously, you are not important.

    Google wifi is great. 4pack at costco for the price of 3 at amazon.

    • They’re ok for their size. Sound quality isn’t great but when you only shower for the length of two songs, it’s whatever.

    I live in a 5k sf house. Google WiFi is amazeballs.

    I got an Amazon Echo for free. I honestly don't even see it's use. I have Xfinity Home which integrates all your smart home devices into your phone and x1 platform. Meaning I can control my home and all devices from my voice remote or phone. xifi pods handle my mesh network. I haven't had to pay for any of it, so maybe I would give I didn't get all this for free

    I don't see any use of smart speakers.
