At least you can say you are not alone at home anymore.

41 fu**ing partners.

@emanuele This is no real surprise for me as it should be well known that Alexa is tracking a lot of the users behavior.

@denniskeke I know it too. A lot of people are not aware of it anyway: they think their “smart speakers” are just modern and innocuous personal assistants. They just see a device always ready to help them.

@emanuele this is why I never wanted one of those smart speakers in the house
