That happens when you let a girl in charge of your household affairs.
Alexa's just a Gossip girl, after all.
Vishnu1990s, 25 May 2018I must say, we will be more happy without these stupid machines. Very well said
So the news is... "Eavesdropping, always-on, Internet-connected microphone, controlled remotely by an entity that can order it to do anything, does its job and eavesdrops on family".
Why would any sane person buy a literal wiretap and put it in their home...
One day,,,. suddenly Amazon send you packages and charge your credit card for something that you don't want to buy.
so it is really a dumb AI which continuously mishears. BTW is there really a need of these assistant devices at home??
did anyone else raise an eyebrow at the part where Amazon's technicians confirmed everything that happened by looking at their log files?
Amazon's reaction is similar to government reaction on alien /ufo cover ups....
I like how they kept telling that the echo was asking OUT LOUD for a confirmation. Like "it's not really our fault, I mean the echo warned you it was doing a thinhg, so it's technically your fault for letting it".
To be fair, they're kind of right. Buying a device like that was your mistake
I agree with amazon staff apologizing to the family. That conversation should have been sent to amazon data centers but by mistake it got sent to one of the family’s contacts. Lol.
IOT, your house and appliances are being weaponised to use against you. Already the Chinese are being coerced to be good little citizens, the New World Order is coming...
Who actually uses such devices? As a concept, they're great.. But apart from that, in the real world they do not belong
AnonD-450057, 25 May 2018honestly that is an unacceptable reason AI will one day report you to the police. The government will install one AI listener in every home.
