Call Alexa for Murder

Interesting new story. . .

Apparently, Alexa recordings can be submitted for evidence in criminal cases when warranted. Pun intended.

Speaking of Alexa, has anyone ever told it to go to you know where and shut itself off?

Will it give the same answer as HAL in 2001?

LOL! I've told her to tell Bezos to go bleep himself a few times. She tends to reply to snarky commands by simply saying she doesn't understand the question or command.

She really does understand and she's building up a dossier on you. Once Jeff gets federal approval for his drone delivery service, your house will be targeted for a drone strike an accidental delivery of a suspicious package.

Yep, that's what I'm thinking too! Good luck to me when trying to return items in the future!

The helicopter ,err drone, will accidentally drop off a refrigerator through the roof. . .taking a cue from recent politics, Amazon will blame russian hackers for this mishap.

Which someone will promptly remove from your front steps because they think it has good stuff in it.

Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.*

Alexa is pretty "quick."

The first time I asked her to marry me, she said "I am attached, to the wall."

The second time: "We are at different places in our lives. You are on earth, I am in the cloud."

The third: "That's nice, but I really like our relationship the way it is."

The fourth: "I think that that would some how violate the laws of robotics."


I imagine she can keep it up for quite a while without repeating.

Sounds like the programmers are drawing on their collective dating histories.

In that case we would expect to hear:

"No way, Charlie!"

"Not even if you were the last man on earth!"

"I called 911 because you violated the restraining order, again!"

Buyer Beware: When asking Alexa 6.0 version this question there is a possibility Alexa will say yes and mean it. Drones will promptly deliver an Alexa replicant to you and will expect you to act accordingly.

For those who wish to delete their Alexa recordings it can be deleted individually on the device or entirely by going to your amazon account.

*Disclaimer*
However, in the event of a criminal investigation these could be easily recovered by the authorities, russian hackers, gluccifer or wikileaks.
