I use an Amazon Echo in my home (here in Australia), and she ("Alexa") is as dumb as a bag of rocks. Cannot comprehend simple instructions, starts talking and playing music when nobody is in the room, accepts and drops calls for no reason, disconnects itself from the wifi. We'll often comment to ...

Replacing a non-functional red couch with a non-functional brown couch? Groundbreaking.

"space explorers ... would need to get to work immediately to create a habitable atmosphere"Not physically possible on Mars. You need a magnetosphere to prevent solar radiation blowing the atmosphere away, and Mars' molten iron core went cold and stopped turning billions of years ago.

I recently saw the B787 being assembled on the factory floor at Boeing's Everett plant in Seattle! Gorgeous planes, can't wait to fly it on QF96 in Dec!

Re: the HKG route as a whole... Qantas now prefers smaller planes (A330) flying more often, rather than one giant plane (A380) arriving infrequently.This allows them to offer more services to business travelers, who appreciate having a selection of services throughout the day to choose from.
