When will Alexa start buying more Alexas?

TV news report about unwanted Alexa orders triggers unwanted Alexa orders / Boing Boing

Television anchors on San Diego’s CW6 were discussing how a young girl “accidentally” ordered a dollhouse and four pounds of cookies by talking to Amazon’s Alexa when one of the anchors said “I love the little girl, saying ‘Alexa ordered me a dollhouse.” Oops. From CW6 San Diego: As soon as (anchor Jim) Patton said that, viewers all over San Diego started complaining their echo devices had tried to order doll houses…

Fortunately, Amazon gives refunds for accidental orders. Still, be careful what you say in front of the children.
