I would say something like, "hey guys, could you all do me a favor and not use your phones tonight while we are hanging out?"
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Handy Haversack:

But there's active use, and then there's the phones on passive spy mode. Without a dishwasher, how do you get everyone to deafen their phones?

definitely with ads they listen

my hands have soaked up so much acetone from my years of doing paste up i'm sure alzheimer's is in my future.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Webhamster Henry:

I was going to reiterate what tak said. Remember that they don't care about you, even though they are tracking your behavior and location as much as they can. Now they correlate the buying habits of whatever phone-holding persons you are near often enough in order to sell you stuff that they just bought.
  6:19pm Graham C:

Hi Ken. I read an article somewhere in the last few months arguing that the AI is advanced enough now that it’s not necessary to spy directly on individuals for the purposes of targeted advertising. It’s simply a matter of triangulation—-social media and device usage are so thoroughly enmeshed in the lives of millions, and the AI can simply connect a lot of dots.
  6:19pm Marie:

If you have a microwave, ask them to put it in there ? ? @) what kind of spy where are we talking about on the phones?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Franco Twinkie:

Marie, been nice is very difficult for me. But strangely, people still want to hang out. Go figure.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 6:20pm DjLorraine:

I tried to help an elderly friend at his home and after awhile he shouts “Alexa,. ..“ I felt betrayed that i wasn't told.

Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Handy Haversack:

K8 got a Light Phone (www.wfmu.org...) instead of her old flip phone, but we haven't set it up yet. Because we both are kind of like, "What's a SIM card again? How do those work?" Not too hep over here, I'm afraid.

Oof, DjLorraine.

queems, your devices listening in and spying on you.
  6:21pm queems:

@handy ah yes, that
  6:21pm Marie:

@ Franco--I find it hard to believe that you hard time being nice... your buddies prolly appreciate you and know not to take that personally///
Avatar 6:21pm tak:

yeah sim cards do amazing things on their own! but it's mostly just tracking for operators/agencies
  6:21pm Marie:

BTW, I go through all my apps and limit their permissions as much as possible
  6:22pm queems:

it upsets me but i refuse to do anything about it other than turn off siri voice activation
  6:23pm Marie:

I would never have Siri or Alexa..., gotta say...
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Webhamster Henry:

For example, it doesn't matter that you don't look up "goop" if friends or neighbors (as defined by location) do. If that product is paying for product placement, it'll prioritize ads sent to you.

Correlation isn't causality: if I've mentioned something in conversation, there's a very good chance that I've seen something about it already on one computer or another.

I've only once experienced what seemed like having been listened-to, and I think it were actually due to the above. As far as I know, no devices usually listen to us. We've no 'smart speaker', we've supposedly turned the microphone off on our streaming device's remote (though I ought to open it and cut its cable).

Eek! I get a lot of subway dreams although I haven't lived in NYC in 15 years. Is amazon trying to force me to move back?

I love Mark, but Ken as a certain je nes se quoi. Can we do a one on one off to parse this horror that is been imposed on us? Humor is a good balm for rising panic.

If you have some busted headphones, cut the plug off and stick it in the socket (if you still have one) and the mic will be disabled.

(Also, not to brag, but K8 made a great bean chili last weekend, and we were going to have it on rice tonight, and then I suddenly could see the Matrix and said: "What if we had it on Tater Tots?"

It is so on that it very much resembles Donkey Kong.)
