Well...

Well, if at all possible, I would suggest that everyone just don't use any of this IOT crap from anyone. It seems apparent to me from their behavior that Google, MS, FB, Comcast, AT&T and all these other big corporations have the ethics of a rabid piranha in a toilet bowl. I realize that some people must use their wares and are unwilling victims. And yes, I have an Android phone because I can't afford to pay the "Cupertino idiot tax" as El Reg refers to it.

But insofar as I can, I disable tracking and slurping in what I do use and try to avoid giving any money or useful information to those monsters. They already have far too much money and power, and will stop at nothing to gain more. Aside from just being the cheap bastard I am, I don't want to help make the monsters even more powerful than they already are.
