Not-So-Breaking News: Big Tech Invades Privacy
Who would've ever thought (besides everyone)?
September 3, 2019
It turns out that Apple — the "we're not like them, we care about your privacy" tech giant — has been eavesdropping on your talks with Siri. Apple 'nem hired over 300 third-party contractors to listen to Siri requests so they could train their AI...and didn't tell a soul about it.
Apple says only 0.2% of requests were recorded, but considering that there are millions of Siri requests every day, that's a lot of nosiness. The company is facing a lawsuit because of the privacy violations.
