Privacy and the Internet of Things

While Apple took a stand for privacy and against unreasonable requests from the US Govt and NSA this past week, the news isn’t all rosy.  Now, according to The Guardian and other reports, smart devices can be used to spy on you.  From Amazon Echo, to your samsung TV, to eventually your refrigerator, thermoatat, and virtually any electronic device will be connected by an Internet of Things that the government has every intention of exploiting for surveillance purposes.

This is both an exciting and concerning time to be alive, friends.
