Alexa, cough up those always-on Echo audio recordings, says double-murder trial judge

"captured audio of the killings, and subsequent removal of the bodies"

On a one-second buffer ?

Unless said buffer is sent off to Amazon servers immediately, which effectively transforms the device into an audio streaming device that records everything onto Amazon servers, I really don't see what that thing could possibly have sent to the server that is of any use.

And if the Echo is effectively recording all sounds 24/7 in your house, then it is by far the most disgusting application of technology ever brought into this world and Big Brother is purple with envy.
