Seriously, how dumb can you be?
Earlier this month, NPR’s Weekend Edition ran a story on its Listen Upsegment about Amazon Echo and how the voice-activated assistant was helping customers extend the power of the internet into their homes.
But, ironically, the radio program triggered Amazon Echos in the homes of a few listeners.
So you buy a robot that listens to voice commands, and then somehow you inject voice into the environment that sounds like what it listens for.
It does it.
