It was the column that launched screams around America.
Last week, I wrote about a UK law firm that suggested Amazon’s Alexa and her cohorts should be switched off before you have any confidential work-related conversations.
Now that you’re likely working from home, this seemed like important news.
Naturally, I received many tweets from the nation’s freedom fighters, insisting that no, they’d never have an Amazon Echo, Google Home or Apple HomePod in their castles.
However, I also heard from the inventively paranoid. Or, rather from the people behind Paranoid.
“Yo,” these people said. “We have a gadget for that.”
“Not another bloody gadget,” I grunted. “Isn’t it the ultimate in never-ending Horror Hall Of Mirrors when a new gadget tries to solve the security problem of another gadget?”
(Yes, I paraphrased that exchange somewhat.)
