Good Morning, Computer.

Good Morning, Computer.
Some people live with partners, some people live with children, some have pets and some live with computers. (Lucky ones like me normally live with all four).

In my case the sound is usually muted but GB's buzzes and whirrs and says "Ding, dong" (the Windows version of Good Morning") to him.

We then feed it a bit of information and an e-mail or two and in return it rewards us with our diaries and messages from our friends and relatives. We respond with more messages.
