Summary

Google has become the latest tech giant to admit that it had screwed up when it comes to doing something suspect related to one of its devices and users’ privacy.Google’s Nest home alarm products are embedded with a microphone that was not disclosed to the buyer. Business Insider was told by execs that the mics are included on the device so that [it] can potentially offer additional features to our users in the future, such as the ability to detect broken glass.Furthermore, “the microphone has never been on and is only activated when users specifically enable the option,” according to Business Insider.Like its peers, Google is finding out what it’s like to have issues meant to be kept private exposed to the masses.Business Insider broke the news of the Nest systems and the built-in microphones. More are doubting that the uptick in the number of these screw-ups just mistakes.It seems that tech companies are in an endless cycle of “hold my beer.” As soon as we learn about one doing something related to privacy we hear of another one doing something just as bad.Google joins Amazon in having privacy issues with its devices.
