"Bose Corp spies on its wireless headphone customers by using an app that tracks the music, podcasts and other audio they listen to, and violates their privacy rights by selling the information without permission, a lawsuit charged." – https://www.reuters.com/article/us-bose-lawsuit-idUSKBN17L2BT #Privacy #Bose
@hund The less IOT, the better.
@hund Dammit Bose!
Seriously though, are there any companies not spying on everyone? I mean, you know things are bad when your headphones spy on you.
@hund tracking metadata and ai prediction has become the norm. Any company not selling userdata is losing money. Chances are they all do it, if not directly then through sister companies to ensure mommy stays ok if they get caught with hand in the cookie jar. Having sister companoes also gives you a good excuse to share PII for "reasons"
@almindor That's one sinister view of it. :P
@hund So, what, they have a secret deal with last.fm or some shit?
And who the hell settles for Bose gear, anyway?
@hund Please stop. I can only hate everything *so* much.
@OTheB I have heard that the eggshell Stallman is living in is pretty cozy. :D
