Amazon’s Alexa device has a lot of good qualities, but one bad one: It eavesdrops.
A couple in Portland, Oregon, was shocked to discover Alexa recorded a private conversation in their home and then sent it to a random person on their contact list.
“My husband and I would joke and say ‘I’d bet these devices are listening to what we’re saying,’” she said.
Things took a chilling turn into Big Brother territory about two weeks ago when the couple got a phone call from an employee of Danielle’s husband.
