Jeff Bezos is disgusting keeps selling poison products to children
Amazon gets caught again and again then “pledges” to stops selling ‘toxic’ goods for children in US but never does.
Products high in toxic metals were being sold to children, a US investigation finds.
Children’s jewelry and school supplies such as pencil cases, backpacks, book covers and lunch boxes. containing toxic levels of lead and cadmium will no longer be sold via Amazon in the US.
The retailer has acted after a US federal investigation found “dozens” of products for sale containing illegal levels of the metals.
One product had up to 80 times the recommended amount of lead in it.
but he still sells toxic goods to the rest of the planet.
In 2018, the Internet Watch Foundation had received 105,000 reports of child sexual abuse
William Chapman, representing three victims of online abuse – two of whom are brother and sister – told the inquiry “the largest tech firms are failing” to prevent children at risk of sexual abuse.
“Is it really beyond the wealth and wit of these technology companies to prevent and detect child sexual abuse on their platforms?” he said.
“Or is there something incompatible with their commercial objectives… their culture and ideology… that makes them bridle at the necessary steps to curb this modern scourge?”
When Alexa runs your home, Amazon tracks you in more ways than you might want.
You can tell Amazon to delete everything it has learned about your home, but you can’t look at it or stop Amazon from continuing to collect it.
The spy in your thermostat
Alexa’s voice archive made headlines most recently when Bloomberg discovered Amazon employees listen to recordings to train its artificial intelligence. Amazon acknowledged that some of those employees also have access to location information for the devices that made the recordings.
The California State Assembly’s privacy committee advanced an Anti-Eavesdropping Act that would require makers of smart speakers to get consent from customers before storing recordings. The Illinois Senate recently passed a bill on the same issue. Neither is much of a stretch: Requiring permission to record someone in private is enshrined in many state laws.
Every kind of appliance now is becoming a data-collection device. My Chamberlain MyQ garage opener lets the company keep — again, indefinitely — a record of every time my door opens or closes. My Sonos speakers, by default, track what albums, playlists or stations I’ve listened to, and when I press play, pause, skip or pump up the volume. At least they hold on to my sonic history for only six months.
And now the craziest part: After quizzing these companies about data practices, I learned that most are sharing what’s happening in my home with Amazon, too. Our data is the price of entry for devices that want to integrate with Alexa. Amazon’s not only eavesdropping — it’s tracking everything happening in your home.
