INEXCUSABLE: Alexa’s Latest Blunder Ushers in The ‘Post-Privacy’ World

There is one surefire way for Amazon to avoid this sort of issue: Stop harvesting user data.

Americans as a whole have not been very careful when it comes to protecting their rights to privacy, and the latest trends in home appliances are no exception.

Without question, the idea of bringing a microphone into your home for the purpose of integration was a sketchy one.  What’s worse, the digital world behind that microphone is studying you at all times, trying to find the best way to sell you something.  Amazon’s Alexa, for example, is directly connected to America’s most prominent retailer, and acts as a conduit for rampant consumerism.  On top of this, Amazon can sell advertising space on their massive streaming platform for the advertisers who will most likely make it onto your grocery list.

In short, Alexa is spying on you in order to make taking your money easier for Amazon.

An “error” granted a man who uses Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant access to another user’s 1,700 voice recordings, according to a report.

Reuters reported, Thursday, that the German user “got access to more than a thousand recordings from another user,” due to what Amazon described as an “unfortunate case” which was “the result of a human error and an isolated single case.”

“The customer had asked to listen back to recordings of his own activities made by Alexa but he was also able to access 1,700 audio files from a stranger when Amazon sent him a link,” Reuters explained, adding that the user “initially got no reply when he told Amazon about the access to the other recordings.”

While this is concerning on a number of levels, one Twitter user hit the nail on the head.

The Trump team (and America, in general) scored a big win on Wednesday. Ultimately, Nevada could potentially swing back toward President Trump if all goes according to plan. Now, the lawyers just have to provide the evidence. Here’s the deal, via Washington Examiner: In its first court victory, a Nevada judge has agreed to let the Trump campaign present its evidence that fraud and illegalities plagued the state’s election, enough to reverse Joe Biden’s win and set an example for other state challenges. According to Trump officials, the judge set a Dec. 3 hearing date and is allowing 15 depositions. What’s more, the campaign plans to present its evidence that could result in the rejection of tens of thousands of mail-in ballots in Democratic Clark County where Biden ballots outnumbered Trump ballots by 91,000 in unofficial results.

Pelosi. Newsom. Phil Murphy. All have been caught doing things during the pandemic that they’ve cautioned the public against doing. That would be called hypocrisy – do as I say, not as I do. Now, another far-left radical has been busted in the act. It’s as if these libs think they won’t get caught. From The Daily Wire: Denver Mayor Michael Hancock (D) apologized and asked for the public’s forgiveness on Wednesday evening after it was revealed that he was traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday despite his own Twitter account cautioning against travel “if you can” earlier in the day.
