Facebook downplays “ambient audio” tech that can eavesdrop on you

In the creepy category of today’s news…

At least two Facebook patents describe listening to users’ TVs. Facebook says it will “never” deploy the technique, but other firms are using similar methods.

Speaking of “other firms,” has anyone looked into Amazon’s data collection? It’s probably creepier than Facebook’s.

COMMENT

this is really creepy. I had a feeling this exists… I talked to my daughter few times about buying few things. On the next day I had adds on my FB exactly for these products and I never did an online search for those.
