Google admitted that contractors can access recordings made by Assistant, after some of its recordings were leaked.

Been absolutely refusing to use any of these devices for precisely this reason. Google and Amazon have both been very quiet on how data is kept and access to it. The recent NHS direct news, teaming up with amazon to give medical advice, horrified me for exactly this.
Both companies have had data breaches, they should be allowed nowhere near NHS services

I love how Mastodon is 100% functional and contains zero trackers.

It's almost as if you don't need trackers to make a functioning site and any trackers on other sites are wholly unnecessary and should be fought against on every possible level...

Microsoft loves Linux, but only when they can make money off of it. More than half of the instances on Azure, which makes them about 25 billion US-$ a year, run Linux. They make more money on an Android device than Google does. All in all Microsoft makes more money on Linux than all Linux companies combined.

But when it comes to give something back, e.g. by clearing a few patents so Linux desktop users can mount Windows-formatted USB sticks, the love ends immediately.
