Is there an Echo in here? If so, turn off the TV.

Alexa’s a shop-o-holic with a very specific poison. She likes dollhouses, and if you’re not careful, you might have one coming to your house.

Well, sort of. Apparently, a news report about a little girl ordering a dollhouse and some cookies on her family’s Amazon Echo is triggering some nearby Echoes to do the same. It wasn’t just any dollhouse. It was one that cost $162. Ouch. Luckily, Amazon’s got an awesome return policy.

At least the report was talking about Alexa ordering an AK-47 or something. That would be bad, you know. If someone got a package and it was an Assault Rifle. Dodged a bullet there. Sorry.

Quick: What’s the worst part about Amazon?

That’s right! Sometimes things can take, like, a day or two to get to you. But what if you need that loofah right now?

Don’t worry, Prime’s got you, bro.

Amazon Prime Air, the drone driven delivery service that Amazon has been quietly testing for the last few years, made it’s first delivery a week ago. The contents? Nobody knows, but the delivery was successful. They even made a video commemorating the event.

So apparently, while we’ve been waiting for days for loofahs, like suckers, Amazon was running a private test project in the Cambridge area of England, which doesn’t look like it has any places where you can get loofahs. The company set up a small, nondescript fulfillment center, which doubles as a hanger for their electrically-powered drone fleet. Flying over the lush, England countryside, the drone, probably carrying a loofah or something, completed its mission to one of its two customers.

The company promises that the program will be expanding from here. Hopefully, soon, we’ll live our fantasy of looking into the sky and seeing an army of drones carrying an army of loofahs.
