I don't understand people!
Too lazy to vacuum your house so now you'll have #Amazon collecting even more of your data! Maybe they'll start putting cameras on these things!
(If they are not already on there!)

Keep your goofy vacuum, your ring doorbells, your cell phones, your #Alexa and all that other electronic spying garbage! NOT INTERESTED!

In 2017, iRobot CEO Colin Angle told Reuters that his company was considering selling data collected from customers’ homes by Roombas to companies including Amazon and Google, helping the corporations discern what and how to market products.

“Maps of the inside of your home can tell a lot about a person,” Electronic Frontier Foundation attorney Jamie Williams told BuzzFeed at the time. “For instance, how you lay out your living room could disclose whether watching TV is a central part of your life.

It could disclose whether you have pets. How often you rearrange furniture. This information wouldn’t be worth a lot to advertisers if it didn’t reveal highly sensitive information about the inside of the home.”
