Increasingly, the general public are opening their minds to new and intrusive devices that watch, record, and surveil our activities…. After the Vault 7 leaks, including Trump’s suspicions of ‘Shadow Government’ surveillance of Trump tower and his family, it has become commonplace to hear about these widespread, openly-admitted privacy infractions…. The Amazon Echo is the latest example of consumers seeking after technologies in their homes, a growing omnipresence:
“It’s basically a camera that you stick in your bathroom or your bedroom or wherever you dress, and it takes full length images of what you’re wearing. It’s being called a “style assistant.” It has a service that “combines machine learning algorithms with advice from fashion specialists,” presumably to give you feedback on what you’re wearing. I’m guessing that at some point, it’ll make suggestions for clothes you should buy on Amazon.1
The docile public have become accepting of cameras that even watch them dress!
