Cayla -- the one we know about!

But here's the thing -- has this type of technology been hidden in mains powered consumer devices without our knowledge? Does the IoT kettle phone home all the conversations in the kitchen? Does the Nest thermostat phone home video from the bedroom? If yes, can the phoning home be intercepted by the much publicised "bad guys"?

I thinks we should be told!!
