Amazon workers listened and transcribed commands on 'Alexa' device: Report

How stupid are the media now? Of course Amazon is listening to people's commands, otherwise they wouldn't be able to fucking provide what they provide.

ALL devices using voice commands are merely listening devices eaves dropping on conversations 24 hours a day

Google home wakes every time I say trump. They are all spy devices or sorts. Buyer beware. Before we know it our every move will be tracked, recorded & used (w/o name of course)🧐

And we didn't know this was the main hidden agenda for the Alexa anyhow? Come on. Alexa was intended to eavesdrop on us. Not to help us with our lives.

I still can't fathom any reason why anyone would want these devices in their home. I hear stupid rationalizations that really don't pan out. Like "it's convenient" or "it saves me time from having to something myself", which is basically people with a totally bloated sense of their importance and value of their time. So, you're so busy that you don't have 15 seconds to do an internet search or visit a website? Clicks of buttons are suddenly so time-exhaustive, and physically and mentally draining that you need a machine to do it for you. Flipping a light switch too much work? I don't get it. People want to act like they need all this shit because they're keeping up with the Joneses or because they are oh-so-busy-and-important that they can't exist without a piece of technology like this, when in reality, its mostly because human beings are mistaking total fucking laziness with convenience (yes, there's a difference). How many of these people with these devices in their homes are just laying on their couch like tubs of lard or on their computers doing nothing productive, picking their schnoz, reading rants like mine on YouTube, and do really have the time to do the shit that this Alexa (and similar devices) do? And is it worth having something constantly listening to everything in your household and doing who-knows-what with it really worth saving the time of getting off your lazy duffs and flipping a switch, or pressing a few buttons, or typing a few words? I don't think it is. This shit is straight up creepy 1984 type shit and people think it's so cool and impressive, and I felt it as soon as these devices started hitting the market. I'm not some total neo-luddite, but for fucks sake, how are so many people thinking that this kind of shit is legit? Totally don't get it. Creepy stuff. Rant finished.

Well don't forget about what Julian Assange has revealed. Not just Alexa, but your smart TV, smartphones, your smart watches, your smart cars, your own government. The only way to limit when these smart devices are listening to you is to throw them into a sealed lead box whenever you want your privacy at night. Otherwise, you just have to accept the fact that someone is listening and watching you at ALL times. Even you unplug the cord or remove the "battery", there are tiny little battery in the circuit so small you won't know what to look for which keeps enough power to continuously transmit and receive signal. This is 2019, if we can clone people and play God through gene editing, send people to space and find black holes, then being able to listen and watch every person on earth should be a piece of cake for those who need to know your every whereabouts.

If the product is listening for the trigger word "Alexa", then it is always listening. Its the same with "ok, google". Theres nothing to be alarmed about. You invited the technology in to your home so dont act as if you are surprised by this report.

So, here's the deal on stalky these programs are. I was at work, and I never log onto any accounts on my phone. A friend at work (we were discussing music) showed me a video by Django Reinhardt https://youtu.be/aZ308aOOX04 on his phone. I get home and here in my video feed is the Django Reinhardt video.

Yup. Me and my coworker will be talking about "whatever" and we will look down at our phones and all of a sudden whatever we were talking about pops up as an ad on our phone. My friend was looking for this specific sweater, she mentioned to me that she couldn't find it online anymore then BOOM, her microphone picked it up and immediately she looks down her fb pops up an ad for that exact sweater!

Nothing new for me I've turned off all the voice stuff on all my smart devices. I knew they were always listening cause it strange how certain videos or ads pop-up on your device when using voice command on any smart devices that are connected to your network. Did you know most insta messenger app have bots that view your pictures and videos when you send them to your friend through DM's?
