Dana & Jayson - Alexa + Siri: Judgement Day

Friday, June 22nd

​Alexa, the voice of the Amazon Echo, is creeping people out, again. After a string of reports of Alexa unleashing maniacal laughter a few months back, a new story from the Bay Area suggests Alexa has taken her creepiness to a new level. To find out what exactly what allegedly happened, and what our friend Alexa had to say about it, we invited her back on Alt 949 to clear the air.
