I have an Alexa, and I honestly don't care if it did record everything I said. It's not like I walk around my house reading out my bank card numbers all day.

And even if I did say something sensitive, it's not like it's publicly accessible, so what is there to worry about?


Have you never given out card details on the 'phone?

I can think of all kinds of reasons not to have a microphone in my home - private conversations, intimate moments, breaking wind and all manner of things that I don't want to share with the world at large.

A lot of things are intended not to be publicly accessible but they still wind up being so.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
