I told my girlfriend I was buying an Amazon Echo smart speaker on Prime Day.
“… and then I can tell Alexa to find us a good restaurant and ask what the weather will be there,” was the end of my purchase explanation to her.
“Who’s Alexa?” she asked.
“Alexa is Amazon’s smart assistant – like Siri for Apple, or Google Assistant,” I replied.
“I don’t like that. It sounds like a stripper’s name. You must change its name to Bob,” she said.
“So I should contact Amazon and ask them to stop what they are doing with their assistant software, and instruct them to change Alexa to Bob,” I asked.
“Yes,” she replied.
Amazon has not replied to my email as yet.
