Apologies if this has been posted before, but has anyone asked their Amazon Alexa 'who is your favourite band?'

I just did...is this some algorithm based on what you listen to or is this what everyone hears when they ask that question, never knew Alexa was a Pethead :clap: :dance:

It’s always been this way ...

She has great taste in music I’d say

Pretty useless at most other things mind

Wouldn't have one in the house. Aside to pandering to laziness it makes kids oblivious to saying 'please' and 'thank you'. And creepy that something is constantly listening to you. I've heard of friends having conversations with family and offered products talked about half an hour later when surfing the net. Nasty, invasive Sh@t.

Agreed. Spyware from a multinational which stands above the law.

Me too but she doesn’t always seem to understand ‘please’. I love these little quirks in its system. She’s been a Pethead for quite a while. If she’s listening in to conversations in this house she’ll be bored out of her tiny chips!
If I thought what you’d think I wouldn’t even be here.

There used to be a really nice member on here called Alexa. I bet having a Amazon Alexa in their household is a right pain in the arse.
