Creepy Alexa


Quote:

Amazon’s Alexa has been letting out an unprompted, creepy cackle - startling users of the best-selling voice assistant.
The laugh, described by some as “witch like” was reported to sometimes happen without the device being “woken” up.
Others reported the laugh occurring when they asked Alexa to perform a different task, such as playing music.
"We’re aware of this and working to fix it,” Amazon said.
Voice assistants like Alexa are designed to respond or act only when prompted with a wake word, which in this case is “Alexa” or “Amazon”.

There is more to Alexa than they are letting on. Obviously the girl they stole the voicebox from must have died, and is now haunting them. Mwahhahahahahaaaaa!:D

I remember an early Windows role-playing game in which one action has the game tell you, from the speaker, "A Horror took Dad's wallet."

But, it sounded like, "A whore took Dad's wallet."shocked_yellowlips_sealed

Actually, scholar, it DID say that, they only said that it was a "horror" just to get around the censors. ;)
