Amazon Echo recorded conversation, sent to random person
Posted 25 May 2018 - 07:18 AM
Here a few months ago removed the Amazon Echo in the master bathroom due to random speech and it spooking wife (asking too many questions)
Replaced it with a touchscreen running Squeezeplayer which works just fine.
Homeseer Touch ==> Amazon Echo ==> Squeezeplayer (1Gb eMMC).
The Squeeze player is very simple running Ubuntu 14.06 on 1Gb of an internal eMMC which is a bit more light than Wintel running on SSD. Really similar simple boxes.

Call me paranoid but I not only don't own Echo and I have also disabled the microphone on my laptop.

Relating to laptop floaters here just fold down the screen when not using the laptops and typically use them alone and do not really yet talk to my self when typing
But of course I am doing that while I type right now - such that what I write and do are different - paradox I guess.
First time use here of the Roku built in to the television which is always on 24/7. My viewing here is about 80% KODI and 20% Roku such that now I unplug the network interface to the television after I saw Roku pop ups while watching Kodi movies (reading the HDMI cable plus may be the microphone).
Really here didn't care much until wife started to ask about it. This is levels above relating to wife questions about purchasing a $50 plus automated switch when a $5 analog switch works just fine.
really it's about the social engineering of common good AI if you are in to that.

I unplugged my Amazon Echo almost a year and a half ago, I tape over cameras and turn off microphones. I think a lot of what some of these companies do should be against the law. Why are they allowed to track you from site to site?
