Our world is more connected than ever. Not just only connected via people but things. The internet is pretty much in everything now and with the introduction of home helpers such as Google Chromecast/home, and amazon echo/dot we are literally more connected than ever. The new Google home just went through a controversy with at least one device secretly listening and recording all of its owner’s conversations. Now whether this was a bug like Google stated, or Google actually spying in on us (like the CIA) it remains a mystery.
The connected home devices give us such ease and accessibility but at what cost? Is our privacy worth accessibility? Well, personally I think yes. I am about the future and what the future has to offer, and if this means to give up a little bit of my privacy then IM all for it. How are we supposed to make large strides forward without a little sacrifice?
This leads me onto Arduino. For those who don’t know about Arduino, they are small computer boards that can pretty much be wired up and programmed to do anything. So if you want privacy then use an Arduino to make life easy. Or if you don’t have the time or skill then get a google home or amazon echo. The choice is yours.
