    I'm GenX and I also hate calling people, even though I once worked in a call center.

    The problem for the kids watch is if they would actually keep them on.

    Geez, Google services are promising to be free and it feels like you are complaining about innovation instead of finding ways to incorporate new tech into daily life. I would expect more from CNET. Google duplex was never creepy, it's a technology with many years in development and recently enhanced. Ethics and technology is an important topic and ultimately, like all else, it's going to be up to the parent's decision to make the choice. It's like saying that Mobile banking is "creepy", there's no auditor or accountant following you around, instead the updates enhance user experience.

    But can you silence the keyboard clicks? Or change the sound even?

    Is that a YouTube thumbnail or is CNET rebooting the 1988 box-office smash 'Twins'?🤔

    What’s costlier?…
    A $150 smart watch that’ll break only under severe conditions, or a $30 smart watch that’ll break every time you look at it the wrong way?
    😉
