My question is, so what? So what if the NSA is listening to everything? Let's assume the worst...that when I buy a Skylake PC, it can and does record everything that is said in my home and sends it to the NSA for storage and analysis. So what? For one thing, it'll be boring as shit, hours of me snoring, that sort of thing. Continuing the worst case, let's assume they can mine all this voice data perfectly, and can detect any time I talk about committing a crime or otherwise anti-government act. I'm a normal, boring, law abiding person. They won't find anything. I strongly suspect that 99% of the world is like me in this respect, too boring for the NSA to give a shit about.
