OK Google

Machines are taking over! Yesterday I was watching TV with my phone sitting on the table in front of me. A commercial for Google came on where they were touting the voice recognition feature of some new device. The person on the commercial said "OK, Google" which activates the device. My Android phone must have heard the commercial. A few seconds later my phone goes, "I'm waiting." The commercial had activated the voice recognition feature on my phone. It freaked me out!
