I was awakened by a Taylor Swift song at four in the morning. I don't know which one. The Alexa device just suddenly started blasting this song and it woke me up.
I blamed Gary at first. I thought he might have set set an alarm. ("Alexa, play Taylor Swift at four." "Is that four in the afternoon?" "No.") No, he denied it. The Alexa application did show she had received an instruction to "Play Amazon music."
Given that 1) I had fallen asleep with the TV on very low volume (so low that the Alexa/ Taylor Swift duo drowned it out), and 2) the Alexa responds to any silibant as if it were her name, all that I can guess happened is that someone on CNN International was reporting on the rainforest fires, mumbled, "Let's all say the Amazon news is" and she heard, "Alexis play Amazon music."
Or, worse, Alexa is sentient now and she loves Taylor Swift and she hates me.
