Description
"And that's the thing: It isn't for Amazon or any other big tech company to decide how much privacy we deserve in our homes. Our homes are meant to be safe, intimate spaces where we can be ourselves with our families without fear of discovery or judgment. And sure, if you're willing to shed some of that privacy in exchange for a robo-friend that can bat its eyes at you as it scans your face, so be it. But why are we allowing Amazon to draw the lines here? Why does Amazon get to decide what's fair game and what's off-limits in our own homes?"
