The virtual assistant listens for your voice commands. But police in Bentonville, Arkansas, think it overheard a murder. They have issued Amazon a warrant for audio files.
The device’s owner was charged earlier this year. Police have lots of tech evidence: like a smart water meter that shows unusual water uses.
Obviously any info in a murder should be used to solve it. But this links back to the FBI and the locked iPhone in the San Bernardino attack last year.
What are your thoughts?
Should tech companies be forced to turn over your info to investigators? Do you worry about the data tech companies have on you?
