I think we lack some evidence on just how much these devices collect, the toilet is funny: "What it knows: When you flush, or activate a cleansing spray or heated seat. Why that matters: You can’t get much more intimate than your bathroom time." I mean, all of these details individually aren't a big deal, but together could be problematic. We need tougher legislation that restricts just how much data can be collected, and more importantly who its shared with or sold to. I like these devices as they add convenience to my life (and my family), but don't share my data. Also, is Google any better? I ditched most Amazon devices from my house, I use some Google things, I turn off the assistant on my phone/watch/earbuds, I do have a Ring, and switched to a non-cloud security camera system (Reolink).
