Police are asking Amazon to help solve a murder case. Why? Because Alexa is always listening! Privacy Concerns.

Sigh, this is where unfortunately things look to be heading... People create devices that perform MORE than their desired tasks (by 'always' listening, etc) and then police figure out this stolen privacy is available and because it's to solve a case it's "okay" to open the gates to peoples privacy... Giving police more power and taking away more rights/privacy from citizens. This is a process that just keeps happening until we no longer have ANY privacy and any/all government employees or city officials will have whatever power over us they want, instead of serving us.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Yes, this and some recent incidents have been discussed at DiversityTommorow.

One six year old girl told Alexa to order her a Doll from Amazon. A newscaster in san diego read the story and his broadcast activated several San Diego residents Alexas which also tried to order a doll.

Welcome to Brave New World.... its pretty much like the old one.
