Was I hallucinating? Totally OT, perhaps relevant

I wonder if any of journalists had this happen to you. Admittedly, I was laying sick in bed at the time. I clearly and distinctly heard my iPhone or iPad say “Alibaba”. Could this be either 1) an alien from outer space, 2) some nefarious plot by that Chinese version of Amazon, 3)or worse?

I was thinking that to view movies or videos we user a *player* object not a movie or video object. So what about calling it a *viewer* object which would then allow us to view SVGs, images, graphics or any other drawing or illustration format. This way the name is not tied to the data type
