In a previous role (for a digital agency), one of my colleagues was tasked with creating an Alexa app for a client. So he dutifully obtained said device, set it up and started work.

Alas (for him) that he entered his credit card details and forgot to enable any kind of checks when it came to making purchases...

"Alexa, buy a flipping huge telly on Neil's credit card!" was still bandied around the office a few months later when I left.
