I bet that thing you are looking at right now has a microphone in it also.

Also worth noting, anything that has a speaker is also a microphone.

He thinks they don't? They build transcripts that serve as corpora. Easy to store, easy to search, and easy to examine data from them.

This only affects retards that have that shit in their home anyway though. If you're a reasonably intelligent person, you won't invite Big Brother into your house like a cuck

Pretty sure it started doing this as soon as it was functional. Part of the design.

Anyone dumb enough to have one of those things is not going to get any sympathy from me.

  1. They already are building profiles on thought criminals. They know everything.

  2. This is the exact plot from the novel 1984, you have been warned!

This this this this!

Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if they've kept records to use against us at a later date.

Protip. Take those devices and throw them in the trash.

They already do: universal mass collection allows retrospective application of woke law.

It would not surprise me one bit if these companies spawned some sort of internal spook/research arm that would do something like this. 'anonymously' of course...

The only Voice Assistant you should ever even allow in your home is Mycroft. Open Source. Open Hardware.

I would bet it is already creating a catalog of people for future use.

When i find out someone has one of these devices i think a little less of them.

Your phone is already listening to you. And your tv. Don't believe me? Ask google.
