Alexa pleads the 5th

Watch on YouTube

It's very curious that Alexa shuts up for that specific question. It's not like the technology has difficulty understanding the person speaking, that much was demonstrated by the previous 2 questions. After the news about the CIA being able to use smart TVs to spy on people, this behaviour by Alexa is enough to make one a little paranoid.

I originally saw a version of this video thanks to Alex Girard, but that one is now dead due to a copyright complaint. I suppose this video may not last long either, so watch it while you can.
