The Comfortably Dumb – On my Om
Om Malik tapped into a current of mistrust around smart device features sponsored by the big four after he wrote about his mistrust. Even my first generation Sonos speakers attempt to phone home frequently and I block that with a pi-hole. When I wanted to add a room recently I purchased a used first gen on eBay because I will not purchase one that includes an always-on microphone.
