Good morning all ... For a long time now, technology has been a big item for gift giving especially around Christmas time. This year is no exception. Based on a number of articles I found yesterday, the sales of amazon alexa and google attendant both did extremely well this season. Here's the rub. For those of us who read George Orwell's book "1984" we are now seeing his theme as prophetic. The government, hackers, enemies now have the opening to spy on our every move including even in our bedrooms and by all indication our culture is embracing this dangerous cultural swing. Take a look at this article link and give it some serious thought.
To expect that this technology will always be used for the good of mankind is naive. It seems to me the only safe way to have this technology in your home is to unplug it, but then what good is it if it is unplugged all the time. I have been in technology for over 40 years and have seen the good and the bad. In my mind this technology falls into the "dangerous" category.
