Virtual assistants...

...are starting to get creepy. It's Google's fault.

They unveiled two things:

1. Gmail will now compose emails for you. It's basically an extension of auto correct that lets you insert entire phrases.

2. Google assistant can now reasonably impersonate you to, say, order pizza.

Do we want skynet? This is how we get skynet... (Seriously, I actually think this stuff is cool, but it's also stuff we have to be careful with).
