At first I thought the article was a joke.
I like this kid:
The kids had mixed reactions. Shep told his Mom the family architects made him nervous but his 12-year-old brother was probably the least accepting of the project.
One afternoon, not long after the family architects arrived, he grabbed a footstool and put his face right up to one of the Nest Cams.
“Hey, buttholes!” he said. “Why don’t you leave us alone?”
At first, nothing happened. Then there was a crackle of static, followed by a voice on the other end. “That’s a strike,” it said.
