@tofuwabohu industry-wide poorly kept secret makes headlines after someone admits to it in writing

@tofuwabohu Well I'd say that if Google has those recordings in the first place, it suggests their devices aren't powerful enough for their task.

And if it's a nuisance for the devices to make it clear when they're recording, it's not doing the job well enough. But I can see how listening to those recordings can help reduce how many they receive.

@tofuwabohu :oy: this will be very interesting for my house lol, they probably the data out because it's so boring.

@tofuwabohu
Woah, what's next, them storing my location history?
