Reading this article in the Washington Post.
And this one about all the phone apps that sent tracking data to lots of other places:
I'm sure I sound like a Luddite; I'm not, really, but I still am not willing to jump on the smart home bandwagon. Enough of my data is being compromised just by using a smartphone and being online. I try to set my privacy settings to be as restrictive as I can and still have the devices be useful. I'm not ready to just give away more info about what I say and do in my own home. As the author says in this article, all of the vendors swear that "the customer owns the data." Have we not learned anything from the Facebook fiasco? (Full disclosure - I do still use Facebook; I struggle regularly with whether or not to delete my account.)
Am I alone in this? What do others think?
