In another bulletin from the so-called “Internet of Things” comes this shocker:
Amazon and Google unwittingly approved smart-speaker apps designed to eavesdrop on users and steal their passwords
“Unwittingly.” Uh huh.
I’m rapidly getting to the stage where the prefix “smart-” is becoming equivalent to “socialist” or “Democrat”.
And the day I say something to an appliance (e.g. a Bad Word) and it talks back to me is the day it gets fed some .357 Magnum FMJ bullets till it shuts up.
(I’m not saying that’s also true of socialists or Democrats; but the way they’re going, anything’s possible.)
