Re: The paranoia!

You do know what data is collected right?

Total power consumed in a period, probably half-hour period. Which is then made available to you via n app or website and aggregated up into billing periods like 'nights'.

Because you consume power and your retailer wants to bill you for the power you used. Wow.

If you are really worried about Intelligence gathering abilities of analytics, then more effective solution would be to stop using a cellphone and go back to non-smart rotary dial land-lanes as well.
