The Amazon Echo is a great piece of technology, and really not expensive at $179.99. The smart home device plays music from iHeartRadio, will read books to you, dim the lights.... the list goes on.
But it also has a bad habit of ordering stuff from Amazon if you aren't particularly careful... or have a parrot. Yes, a parrot ordered stuff on Amazon Prime using the Echo.
It happened in Australia, where Buddy the parrot learned to say "Alexa," and that's all Buddy needed to access Amazon's ordering system. So yeah, Buddy placed an order.... and maybe Amazon needs to work on some voice recognition upgrades for the next generation of Echo.
