Yes exactly it is all in the push and pull. Attention is applied attention is removed the subject of manipulation feels the difference in pressure
Yeah that was an explicit tactic in the seducers diary, perforating their correspondence with extended spans of silence and inactivity, leaving the young woman wondering. Meanwhile the aesthete seducer would take pleasant walks about Denmark.

You know the theory is bang-on when it can make predictions about behavior

I've had iPhones for years and have never used Siri, and never had the slightest interest in Alexa, etc. What's the benefit of surrendering all this personal information just to be able to say "Alexa, play 'Heaven's in the Backseat of My Cadillac' " versus just getting the record off the shelf or playing it on YouTube?

I think it's more that certain people who enter their engagement with tech, eg my nephew, enter at a point where the option to use siri seems like the most natural, intituitive, easy, effective mode of interfacing.

Whereas your engagement with media predates tech, you have a system which works for you, that is easy and effective, there's no need of point to do it differently.

Neither system is more right than the other, they both achieve the final objective. It's just about the time element and when you got put in.

Or being young enough that, when you have a question or curiosity, by default you don't ask your parents, you ask google.

Amazon’s latest effort to stop regulation of voice recordings focused on a bill from Republican Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham. The lawmaker worried that Amazon staffers were listening to some Alexa recordings made in people’s homes. The company says employees only review a tiny fraction of the recordings.

Cunningham has tried unsuccessfully since 2019 to require companies to get consumer consent before storing or sharing smart-speaker recordings. When Cunningham re-introduced the measure this year, Amazon took a novel lobbying approach: It argued the privacy protections would hurt disabled people.

The lawmaker said he first heard that rationale from lobbyist Anthony Williams, a new Amazon hire and former aide to California Governor Gavin Newsom. Cunningham said Williams showed him a promotional video about how Alexa helped blind people with everyday tasks such as checking the weather. Williams didn’t respond to requests for comment.

At an April hearing of the California State Assembly’s privacy committee, a disability rights advocate testified that Cunningham’s bill was “a form of discrimination” against people with disabilities. The advocate, LaMondre Pough, who uses a wheelchair, testified that the bill’s consent requirements would confuse customers and potentially make the devices less functional for people with disabilities.
