Amazon reports over 100 million Alexa devices sold

Amazon reports over 100 million Alexa devices sold Amazon is notoriously reluctant to share how well Alexa is doing in the marketplace -- at best, you get vague boasts about its devices being the "most gifted." Now, however, it's providing more meaningful figures. The company's Dave Limp told The Verge in an interview that over 100 million Alexa-equipped devices have sold to date. It wouldn't say how many of those are its own devices or break products down by category, but the data suggests plenty of people have Alexa-capable devices in their homes. The company is sold out of Echo Dots through January, Limp added. The stats don't provide a full picture of Alexa's reach.

He's a humble Aussie who found international fame as the "barking dog man" on A Current Affair – and nine years later, Ray Graham's still got it.

Ray caught up with A Current Affair today in Marsfield, NSW, and with trademark forthrightness admitted that "in some ways" he'd been "defined" by his iconic appearance on the show.

Back in 2010, Ray wanted to talk about the problem of dangerous dogs in the neighbourhood, but it was his snarling impression of the aggressive animals that got the attention.

And even nine years on, people still recognised him.

"We often get stopped in the shopping centres and places like that," he said.

"Some want a photo, some want a video.

"And then sometimes, I just bark at them."

The good-humoured suburbanite then indulged A Current Affair's request for a repeat of his famed barking, and as you can see in the video above, he's not lost his touch.

Man confronts thief ... and offers him a beer.
When a man broke into his car, Cameron Tougher didn't chase him down or call the police. Instead, he chose compassion.
