I have some very strong feelings about having these types of devices in my home, for this very reason (Warning: Autoroll video). I am far from being that "tinfoil hat" sort of guy, or at least I think I am. While it is bad enough having an always on smartphone, having devices sitting around the house that are supposed to listen to me are creepy as hell. And knowing that Amazon is sharing identity-sanitized information does not make me feel better about it. Watch what you say to your Amazon Echo. Amazon may give developers transcripts of your conversations with your Amazon Alexa personal assistant so they can build smarter, more responsive software, according to a new report.
