TV ads are now deliberately using phrases to activate home "Alexa" type systems. This is Wrong wrong wrong. It sets a dangerous precedent. What if an ad gives a command for Alexa to order something? And the person is out of the room getting a soda?

Interesting - I do not use Alexa but I see my new phone has Bixby which is similar.

Talking about TV ads, I cannot believe how many pharmaceutical ads there are.
