Let the computer pray for you

Unwilling to hire the local Rabbi to recite a daily mourner's prayer on your behalf? Now you have an alternative:
Information Age Prayer is a subscription service utilizing a computer with text-to-speech capability to incant your prayers each day. It gives you the satisfaction of knowing that your prayers will always be said even if you wake up late, or forget.
The site offers major prayers for all religions. Jews can hire the computer to recite the Shma, Kaddish, and various Mee Shebayrachs. The whole Jewish package is just $26 per month, and as an added bonus the speakers will be faced toward Jerusalem when Jewish prayers are articulated. Unfortunately, the prayers are voiced in English, not Hebrew, which suggests this unscrupulous attempt to make a buck off desperate/ignorant Jews is a little half-baked. Related
