Tech FAIL of the Day

During the nightly news, a reporter was trying to explain how a young girl accidentally ordered a dollhouse using an Amazon Echo, but he ended up triggering viewers' Amazon Echos to start ordering dollhouses from Amazon. big grin

Which is exactly what happened today during CW6 in the morning when Jim Patton and Lynda Martin were talking about a child who accidentally bought a dollhouse and four pounds of cookies "I love the little girl, saying ‘Alexa ordered me a dollhouse,’" said Patton. As soon as Patton said that, viewers all over San Diego started complaining their echo devices had tried to order doll houses. It’s a common problem experts say can be avoided.
