If you purchased an Amazon Echo or Google Home Voice Assistant this Christmas and are planning on using it, welcome to a life of luxurious convenience. You’ll be asking for the weather, the news, and your favorite songs without having to poke around on your phone. You’ll be turning off lights and requesting videos from bed. The world is yours.
But you know what? That little talking cylinder is always listening to you. And not just listening, but recording and saving many of the things you say.
It is like having a cyber genie that will respond to your whim.
