Now that modern technology has solved "Are we there yet" by properly zombifying our children in the backseat with a tablet or smartphone, it's time to tackle that source of lifetime sibling resentment, differential parental treatment, by tying in our AI overlords into domestic video monitoring systems, and making them accessible via voice applications, so at any one point the household can be presented the required evidence about who started what, and provide awesome entertainment for many Thanksgivings and Christmases to come.

       Neither. It was Cortana.

       It is an unfortunity that these speak-enabled agents are passive - in that they accept voice and sometimes blurt out status information but aren't proactively chirping up with their own suggestions that might effect change in the world around them and in the people in the vicinity. If they were proactive, then you could just sit a bunch of amazon google and apple and softthatismicro products together and let them chat.   

       I think they could have chosen better names for the initial addressing recognition, though - Siri seems to be the hardest word.
