If you have a Spotify membership be sure to claim your free Google Mini. I just claimed mine.
No thanks. I don’t want these mega companies listening into anything my family is saying or doing. Let alone everything.
I can’t believe that some people put these in every room of their house.
Personally I would prefer to do things myself, not needing some magic device to do my tasks.
What voice activated devices can do nowadays is really cool from a technology perspective.
But, they have serious privacy issues, and I value my privacy more than having an interesting tech gadget.
Just think how much profit these companies make......then think about how much your data is worth to them.....then ask why would they be giving these away for free.
Your data is worth more then you think to these companies. That’s why they will do whatever it take to get it all. Legal or not your life is controlled by them.
Just imaging the power someone could have over you if they recorded every conversation that you’ve had.
I hope all of you that are concerned are still using flip phones and only inserting the battery when you want make calls. I do agree that the data is the companies product rather than the device.
Thanks for the heads up, I just claimed mine.
I'm not too worried about big data hearing my conversations. They'll get bored when all they hear is me asking my wife if she saw this funny dog video on YouTube yet.
