I know I shouted about those humanoid robots needing 'always listening'.  Specific voice activated command to trigger response is cool. Perhaps the user will be able to change what command activates the voice response.  Perhaps this will happen if people like me keep throwing information for free to Google.  There is satisfaction in throwing free ideas out into the internet just to see wonderful things built.  Lots of people with wonderful ideas create this world.

With that being said, there still needs to be an option to clear history, otherwise people will feel that their privacy is invaded without choice.  Sometimes I may care if it is always listening.  Maybe sometimes people are embarrassed and do not want whatever they said in history forever.  Intimacy may feel invaded, and nobody wants to turn a phone off before a special occasion.  Others may not mind and be open of everything.  It is clear that the choice is still needed.

Micro Fusion Reaction!  :)
 
I loved meeting Charles Chase from Lockheed Skunk Works because he wants to change the world and he has a plan.  His dream is about building a compact fusion reactor (that would fit it on the back of a truck) which is capable of generating 100MW of electricity - enough to power a small city.  Charles thinks he could have a prototype in 5 years and a fully engineered plant in 10 years.  This would be capable of meeting all electricity demands globally by 2050.  All with virtually zero emissions.  An exciting example of how 10X thinking could make the world a better place.
