🔗 Google Nest 2 home device tracks body activity in bed - BBC

And Privacy is Power author Carissa Véliz asked: “What happens when you have sex?"

Google said the new features had been “built with privacy in mind” - and the data collected would not be used to create personalised advertising.

Of course Google won’t do anything creapy with that personal data. I wonder how many Nest users will suddenly see an increase in vigara adverts?

When I first saw the headline, I didn’t immediately think about sex…but it really didn’t take long to think about this connection. This makes me think of how tone deaf Facebook was over the portal…but maybe I’m wrong and people won’t care.
