Re: Own it
Well sure, I was thinking about all the ways digital privacy is invaded even though there are laws against it. :)

I assume there are anti-wiretapping laws that may cover this activity? But IANAL...

Hmm I suppose that law hinges on how "spying" is defined. Every ISP has to know where your traffic is going on some level. But they don't have to keep logs or analyze that traffic......

Re: Speakers + cameras
Now, more than ever, is a great time for Amazon to expand its Amazon Pick Up locations. I use one locally and it's been great so far. No worries about missing deliveries.

Re: Own it
How is said law enforced? How can residents be sure ISPs aren't spying?

Re: Speakers + cameras
I'm surprised folks are still doing stuff like this with all the connected camera technology available. I guess they are betting the victim doesn't have any means of watching them...

Re: Speakers + cameras
Not just doorstep thieves. My doorbell camera caught someone dumping their garbage in front of my house when the person had missed the garbage pickup for the day. I brought it right back to his house.

Re: Speakers + cameras
I"ve yet to invest in a smart speaker of security gadget, but I certainly see the trend as more and more folks play with them and install those doorbell cameras at their front doors. I can imagine those security device sales mushrooming in the future as we all get more and more fearful of those doorstep thieves taking our Amzaon packages.

Re: Own it
Interestingly, in California (not sure about other states), there is a law on the books that prevents cable and satellite providers from spying on their customers.

It remains to be seen how newer-tech companies may fall into that rubric as delivery-mechanisms evolve.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
