    Awe, don’t worry about your privacy, you have nothing to hide. If you really believe that, soon you will have nothing to hide or display.

    Why don’t you write a book? I’d read it! I deal with high tech crime all day and night. A cop and a private eye help. It is completely invasive and defies the logic of math, as we know it. REALLY PAINFUL and totally legal.

    You’ll not believe it. I drive a garbage truck and dump commercial accounts. The other day i found a monitor hidden on the side of one (a wastewiser owl?) and after checking it out online, discovered they’d been recording everything about my schedule. Sheesh

      Or they could have just put it there to determine when the containers were empty, Panicking Patty

      Hmmm, “your” dumpster bug paid for and monitored by the customer, yes?

    How ironic that I have to consent to let this website access my device storage in order to read this article.

    Maybe the environMENTAL activists have been right all along. We shoud all go back to living in caves and eating grass.

    I sat on a tech focus group in 2010. Tasked with building a profile of the occupants in a test “smart house “. With 90 days of data we were able to determine how long people stayed in the bathroom and whether they flushed, when the children applied makeup, and when the father DIDN’T use his CPAP while sleeping (good info for insurance Co). We really don’t have any privacy anymore. But I guess that all depends on one’s definition of privacy

    I read about that a long time ago and now it is real but it does not impress me much.

    We all lost our essence in name of being spectators of our fake lives

    Maybe some people are learning some security. Webs that can not be used after I tighten browser security settings, become usable again in a few weeks. Some webs still fail in no part of google is allowed. I always block google web fonts to keep my IP address from google but few webs now require it.

    Aurora store lets me use google play store sans account. I have no gmail account & only use G maps in browser. Phone normally spoofs GPS location.

    Many are developing new ways to know us by spyphones, TVs, PCs & watches. It is just another arms race.

    As smart devices become increasingly common in our homes and workplaces, concerns are growing about the potential for these devices to collect and transmit sensitive data, compromising our privacy and security. Computer scientists and privacy advocates have warned that many smart devices, such as smart speakers, security cameras, and home automation systems, are constantly listening, watching, and collecting data on their users, often without their knowledge or consent.

    Indeed, the rise of smart devices has sparked concerns among computer scientists regarding the potential invasion of privacy. It’s crucial to stay vigilant and aware of the data these devices collect, as well as the ways in which they can potentially be misused. Protecting our privacy should be a priority in the digital age!
