Another interesting concept on the future of security in an era of voice assistants. Seems like it would be an interesting way to have a passcode with these devices is to play a tone inaudible to humans that's used as a security key for admin privileges. As long as their was no default key and it was something the user chose to enable, it could be pretty cool. 

Story reminds me of two things. One, the most over the top hacking solution I've ever imagined. Also, it reminds me of how the two Steve's got their start together.
