Thousands of Amazon workers listen to recordings from Alexa: reports. There’s an Alexa joke that goes like this: “My girlfriend asked me why I carried a gun around the house all the time. I told her it was to protect against the CIA. She laughed. I laughed. Alexa laughed. I shot Alexa. Good times.” Little did the writer know how true this was.

I’ve got Alexa all over the house. Let me count… 1, 2, 3, 4 of them. Plus a Fire box for the TV that also responds to Alexa requests and two other TVs with Fire sticks. So I’m all in with Alexa. And just let me say, Alexa is one stupid bitch. If they’re listening to me at Amazon, they hear me say that a lot: “Alexa, you are phenomenally stupid.” She’s good for telling me the weather and that’s about it. The one cool thing is making phone calls. Calling my daughters on the Echo Shows I got them for Christmas, using one of my Echo Shows, means we’re having a hands-free video call just like that. “Alexa, call Casey.” That’s all it takes. Makes me feel like George Jetson. One tip for new users: make sure you’re wearing clothes before you answer a video call.
