Virtual Reality SNAFU
This was so funny, I couldn't resist putting it in the blog. Some day in the distant future, I'll come across this post, and it will make me laugh all over again.
Have you ever stood in front of your bathroom mirror and then placed another mirror behind you? What you get is a seemingly endless stream of identical images.
Apparently, a 6-year old girl in Dallas Texas asked her "Alexa" to play dollhouse with her. Sweet, isn't it? Well, Alexa ended up ordering an expensive dollhouse and one other weird item from Amazon!
This, of course, was not the intended response, so the child's parents reported this to their local news outlet. When the news outlet reported the story, several Alexa owners who were tuned into the news broadcast reported that their Alexa units overheard the TV and responded by ordering the same dollhouse!
