When Amazon introduced the Echo and its voice-controlled personal assistant, Alexa, it immediately made life a little more difficult for girls named Alexa.
Being in the same room with an Echo device causes a lot of confusion, not to mention having to hear the same jokes from everyone. But there's something that's even worse, and a 21-year-old woman in New Jersey knows all about it. That's because her name is Alexa Seary [pr: siri]. She shares the names of the two most-popular virtual assistants -- Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri.
Alexa Seary says, "It started off at work. It would be, ‘Siri, do this, Siri do that,’ and now they do the same thing with Alexa. Mostly people just say, ‘Haha, I’m telling you what to do,’ and I’m like, ‘OK, haha, that’s a new one.'"
