Amazon Echo shuts down over CIA connection (Important)

The WikiLeaks ‘Vault 7’ data dump allegedly detailing CIA hacking tactics has again thrown the privacy of electronic devices into focus. One viral video showing an Amazon Echo refusing to confirm a link to the US spy agency is summing up people’s fears.

On Tuesday, Wikileaks unexpectedly released 8,761 documents claiming to reveal “CIA hacking tools” such as everyday smart televisions and mobile devices being used surreptitiously to gather audio and information.

Ubiquitous products by companies such as the Apple iPhone, Google’s Android and Samsung TVs are mentioned in the documents, while Amazon’s Kindle is referred to in a section about code templates.

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    Sometimes I wonder if this whole drive for technology isn't actually to introduce "innovation" into our lives as much as "observation". There really seems to be minimal benefits to all these gadgets versus what they seem to do to back to us.

    Right? Who the hell wants/needs a "smart" toaster? What could this possibly do to improve your life?
