Amazon's Alexa Tech Accidentally Plays Porn Ringtone

Amazon's Alexa, a voice activated music player, misunderstood a child's request and played a string of pornographic buzzwords.

  • Oh technology, even when we do not warn pornography, thou bringst it to us! A video is floating around the internet of the Amazon Echo engaging in less than pure activity, when a child asks the Amazon Echo to play "Digger, Digger" and Amazon Echo offered up a series of porn related curse words. Amazon Echo. How could you! Have you no shame? We still live in a society, Amazon Echo. And we don't need your filth here.

    The track itself is from something called "Ultimate Comedy Ringtones", which has of course topped my list of albums of the year. I love to laugh. And I love to hear my phone ring. Sorry Chance the Rapper.

    Anywho, I'm sure it will be a while until technology both understands us and doesn't accidentally show us porn. I think most of the 90's and 00's was just that— technology accidentally showing us as much porn as it imaginably can. Amazon called the family and apologized, and I'm still waiting for an apology from every new technology that's ever existed.

    What do you think of this story though? What's your favorite track from "Ultimate Comedy Ringtones", aka the greatest album since Sgt. Pepper's? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
