We Used To Say, “Easy As Pie”. Now We Have Moved On To, “Easy As Alexa”.

There is no way Amazon can not make a lot of money now that this story has made the news... 

Who needs Santa? 6-year-old orders dollhouse and cookies from Amazon's Alexa

(CNN)...“ Megan Neitzel couldn't figure out why an expensive dollhouse and four pounds of sugar cookies were delivered to her Dallas home. She didn't order either. Neither had her husband.

 

Then she talked to her 6-year-old daughter, Brooke.

 

"The next morning, I asked my daughter and Brooke said, 'I was talking to Alexa about a dollhouse and cookies.'

 

Alexa is not a sister or imaginary friend, but the voice-activated digital assistant in Amazon's Echo Dot.

 

Brooke asked Alexa to, "Order me a dollhouse and cookies," and that's just what Alexa did.

 

A KidKraft Sparkle Mansion dollhouse, which costs about $170, and a tin of Royal Dansk sugar cookies soon arrived.

 

A check of Neitzel's Amazon app confirmed the order was made after Brooke asked the digital gadget, "Can you play dollhouse with me and get me a dollhouse?"

 

Brooke then told Alexa, "I love you so much!"

 

How is Amazon going to make so much money off of this? Don’t you see it?...

Ø They will sell a lot more Amazon Enabled Echo Thingies (Dots $49.99, Taps $129.99 and Echos $179.99) because everyone now knows how easy it is to use them.

Ø They will sell a lot more of darn near everything else they sell, which is darn near everything, because everyone now knows how easy it is to use Dots, Taps and Echos.

Ø In addition, all kinds of children who now know how to talk and read this story will start ordering darn near everything because they now know how easy it is to use Dots, Taps and Echos.

Ø Finally children who don’t know how to read will start ordering darn near everything as soon as they learn how to read this story about how easy it is to use Dots, Taps and Echos.

 

I can’t help but wonder if this is a Fake News Story planted by Amazon to sell darn near everything.

 

Would I kid u?
