Too many missing the point

I expect this technology to record any transactions I make using the device. However, I don't expect it to record local information, such as when I ask it to turn off the lights or change the thermostat.

Moreover, I don't expect it to record casual conversations and noises. This is absolutely an invasion of privacy.

Furthermore... if any device is recording, and this recording exceeds 30 seconds, the device should beep or provide another alert to let me know it is recording.

It's time our lawmakers step up and begin to tighten controls on what technology can do.

This includes the capturing of day-to-day information on us. Such as, purchasing merchandise using a credit card--and what I purchased--and then selling this information.
