Amazon is not content with putting voice technology in houses.  There are people like me who do not buy these things, so Amazon is now planning a wearable device to listen for mood based on voice recognition! But they are also planning to scan your bodies, too, so I am not sure which is creepier.  We also have some privacy reminders from Snapchat and a senator who is bringing a modded version of DuckDuckGos privacy bill to the floor!

In business news, there has been a hidden list of faulty medical devices.  This is why people distrust medical advice!  We also learn the results of a new study looking at Tesla’s autopilot and more.
