Starbucks tells their employees to install their scheduling app on their smart phones. But it's actually gives Starbucks full access to their employees phones. Starbucks can access any information on the phone, delete any information on the phone and even have admin rights to change settings and even the password on employees phone!

For what reason?

If I get this right. Amazon offers a video surveillance service for homeowners. So homeowners know who's coming to their doors. Meanwhile Amazon makes millions of dollars in government contracts with local police departments by giving them access to your camera feeds!

I have this mental image of Sgt. Mills, Constable Wright and the rest of the boys and girls at the local cop shop sitting around a TV screen, eating popcorn and watching a live feed of my garden path.

Be prepared to boldly get scanned where you've never been scanned before....

Your Roomba isn't just vacuuming your house. It's mapping out your entire floor plan which the company or hackers can use as they see fit.

Amazon will open two cashier-less Whole Foods stores next year.

Amazon is installing its cashier-less "Just Walk Out" technology at the locations, which are set to open in 2022 in Washington D.C. and Sherman Oaks, California. It's the latest test of the software, which is already used at Amazon Go convenience stores as well as Amazon Fresh grocery stores, a new, growing line of supermarkets that Amazon has been opening. Amazon also sells the software to other retailers.

The software lets shoppers enter the store by scanning a QR code in the Amazon or Whole Foods apps and uses cameras and motion sensors to track which products they take off shelves and add to their shopping carts. At the end, customers scan the QR code again to leave the store and receive a digital receipt.

Not quite the same, but:
For the last couple of years, at the Sam's Club where I'm a member, I've been using their app on my phone so that I simply scan my grocery items as I select them, and avoid a checkout line. When I'm done shopping I pay using the app, then I only have to stop at the store exit and let the person there scan the QR code and I'm out.

There have been times I've placed something in my cart, only to place it back on the shelves. I wonder if their cameras and sensors are able to detect this.

One of my local stores has a similar system using hand-held scanners provided by the store. You still have to go through the self-service checkout line at the end of your shopping, where your scanner order is wirelessly transferred to the larger machine and you pay with a credit card. I love scanning my own items while shopping. It makes it easy to make sure you are getting the correct price, since sometimes prices are not adequately shown on the shelf.

As for theft, self-scanned orders are periodically "audited" by having you routed to a manned check-out station where your order is rescanned by an employee. My experience is that this happens about once every 12-15 orders. I don't know what they would do if they found a discrepancy. They never have with me.

I have an Amazon Fresh near me. I've shopped there as one would normally, but I have not signed up for an account in order to use that "smart cart" feature to avoid check-out, and I have no intention to do so. That's a bridge too far for me.

Sorry! As they say Ignorance Is Bliss. Or is it, What I don't Know Won't Hurt me?

Hmmm? That's a good question!

Visual, aural, physical (finger prints & DNA) is the ultimate loss of privacy. Who can give legal advice to Woolly Mammoths?
