The eavesdropping Google Home Mini
Welp, it didn't take a genius to figure out that these new-fangled speakers were going to bite their owners ass sooner or later, the question was: Which brand's speaker will fuck up first? Personally, I had my money on Amazon's Alexa.
From Business Insider: Google rushed out a fix to a glitch in its latest smart speaker last week that caused the device to surreptitiously record the conversations of its early testers without their knowledge or consent.
The bug affected a small number of the Google Home Mini devices that the company handed out to reporters at its press event last week, according to Google. The company rolled out a software update over the weekend to address the issue on those devices and is exploring a long-term fix.
