Are You "Rude" to Your Smart Speaker? 55% of People Admit Yes

US-IT-APPLE-DEVELOPERS

When your Alexa/Ok Google/etc. isn't doing what you want, do you ever start cussing it out? Calling it names? Telling it to shut the *blank* up? Um . . . yeah . . . me neither.

According to a new survey, 55% of people admit they're, quote, "rude" to their smart speakers.

And that includes 31% who are rude once in a while . . . 17% who are rude sometimes . . . 6% who are rude often . . . and 1% who are literally ALWAYS rude to their speaker.

So why are we rude? Maybe this is it: Only three percent of men and four percent of women say their smart speaker is PERFECT at interpreting what they're saying and always responds exactly how they want it to.

But . . . plenty of us are really NICE to our speakers too. Only 19% of people never say "please" or "thank you" to the speaker . . . and 10% always include a please or thank you with a request.
