As an actual Echo owner (wife bought it), that's pretty scary! What I really hate about the Echo is how stupid it gets when the Internet connection drops. Even if the internal network is intact, it can't even turn on the lights.
I also have one of those video doorbells (given as a gift) that is a constant source of frustration in that if the wireless router reboots (usually from a power outage), the doorbell refuses to reconnect without me having to physically remove it from the box in order to press a button and follow prompts from the doorbell app which sometimes takes a half-dozen attempts before it connects!
My Chromecast is annoying when the internet fails as well: Our telephone line was cut and we have no internet for a month a few years ago and the Chromecast refused to do anything, including cast from my NAS or tablet!

I am on a completely different computer (Server 2012 R2 VM) now and running Google Chrome.
Today I went to LinkedIn and the first thing LinkedIn told me was that I wasn't running Chrome (or any valid browser). After looking at it again, I guess they are just saying Chrome version needs to be updated.
