We are living in such a bizarre Orwellian world.

This Christmas, Amazon raked in the lion’s share of all online sales, blowing away real-world competition by leaps and bounds. And the company’s number one bestseller? The Amazon Echo and Echo Dot.

There’s a reason Bilderberg Group attendee Jeff Bezos’ cute little voice-activated gizmos have been priced so extremely cheaply… to get them into as many houses as possible as quickly as possible. No one has been able to explain to me how these aren’t creepy big brother spy devices to get sheeple (who have been conveniently programmed by watching years of Jetsons cartoons as a kid to think anything futuristic is cool with no potential drawbacks) on the smart grid Internet of Things… no matter how obvious the Orwellian nightmare warning signs are.

Recently it came out that police can retrieve the voice data from anyone’s Echo. And if people honestly believe that thing is only recording voice commands and not every ambient conversation or even sound happening within range, then I’m going to have to go get a thesaurus because the words gullible and naïve just simply aren’t going to cut it here.

Now it has come out that Alexa, the Amazon voice assistant that “lives” inside the Echo, is ordering stuff people didn’t even want.

Recently six-year-old Dallas resident Brooke Neitzel asked Alexa the super vague, “Can you play dollhouse with me and get me a dollhouse?” so Alexa didn’t just order the Neitzel’s a dollhouse, it ordered them a $170 KidKraft Sparkle mansion dollhouse, along with four pounds of sugar cookies (which the kid also admittedly “talked to Alexa” about). Alexa apparently has expensive taste, go figure.

The Huffington Post cheerfully reported that Brooke’s family is now “whispering more around Alexa”.

Great. So they paid to place a low-level AI in their house that they are now forced to whisper around? No, that doesn’t sound creepy at all.

But also, why would they honestly think whispering will cut it?

That’s not all, however; no, that’s not even the most alarming part.

When a local San Diego station did a news report on this and the station’s anchor said the phrase “I love the little girl, saying ‘Alexa ordered me a dollhouse,’” on air, it triggered San Diego viewers’ Amazon Echoes to buy them dollhouses too… apparently without the Echo owner personally saying a word. People were calling up the station to complain about it.

And don’t even get me started on what Alexa attempts to order if an innocent toddler asks it to “play tickle tickle”

Welcome to the future. If things are already this screwed up, I think I’ll take a pass on those flying cars, thanks.

    Alexa….. Get back in your box and post yourself back to Washington.

    • Dow Jones

      Take a hammer to the bitch; they haven’t made it a crime of murder yet.

      • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

        Or just “ax” it a question. . .

  • won one in a raffle at a trade show. Immediately put it out on craigslist for $100.
    problem solved!

  • michael lawless

    alex find us a leader

  • landy fincannon

    Cashless is where we headed to. If you think we’re controlled NOW !

    • Dow Jones

      They can’t make all of us play that game if we refuse to consume their garbage and play by their rules. Off grid is a state of mind for those on a higher level and that refuse the depravity of their electronic pens. Never forget that the damn government can always be toppled and the fact that these scum are hired hands to serve us.

      • landy fincannon

        I love/agree with your sentiment. However, the BANKSTERS, now own it all. From the smart meter outside to the smart everything inside. I dont mean literally just the process of obtaining it

  • Dow Jones

    Mindless, protoplasmic zombies being intimidated and robbed by Zero 1% owned robots to “guide” their shit boring half-lives. Makes perfect sense if you are a retard.

  • Clementine

    The most alarming part is not only that idiots are buying these things… but they are now WHISPERING IN THEIR OWN HOMES for fear that this device will hear them! TAKE A HAMMER TO THAT THING AND GET BACK TO REALITY! Freakin’ IDIOTS!

  • Verbal Bomb Chucker

    You ain’t getting one of those things in my house without a fight. When I first heard about these SmartHome devices, I was thinking, “who else is listening??”
    Nope. Don’t want or need one.

  • tonye

    I ain’t putting one of those in my bedroom….or next to the stereo playing Frank Zappa.

    God knows what it might order… ;-D

  • Jeremy05

    if you guys think that technology and the embracement of it for convenience is the problem then YOU’RE the problem. All of you idiots, that have allowed these clandestine organizations and governments to become what they have, are the problem!

  • Be A Freeman

    Hilarious! The most ironic part of 1984 predicting our future, is the fact people are WILLING, and ANXIOUS to pay for the devices monitoring them!

    • Jeremy05

      you guys are so idiotic, what’s more problematic is you a**holes looking at the symptoms rather than the REAL problem/s. The alternative media has become a joke, worse than the whiney liberals, especially those pathetic entertainers. Can only cry wolf SO many times, and the alt media is waaaayyyyyyyyyy beyond their credibility. We now have fake/BS stories coming from both sides! I wouldn’t even be surprised if what is claimed in this story never actually happened.

    • Jeremy05

      what’s really ironic is that a site like this attempting to appear as if its some patriotic, free speech, thought sharing/provoking ideologue media site requires you to log in using information from one of those “established” social sites so your comments and more importantly YOU can be tracked. Maybe you should complain about that instead, you know what you’re getting with Amazon and the echo, what are you getting with this POS site?

  • magic1114

    If it has a microphone and the ability to connect to the web, they can keep it.

  • Johnny Canuck

    Whew! I don’t even have a Web Cam or an iPhone. I’m getting suspicious of the toaster, though.

  • remember the day they had to get a Warrant to place a bug in your house…..

  • It is not Paranoia

    Can somebody explain to me what this device is and what is its supposed purpose?

  • Jolly Roger

    It doesn’t matter, because only an idiot would have that piece of crap in their house anyway.
