Amazon wants to know more, more and more about you!

When was the last time you bought something from Amazon? Last week? Yesterday? Waiting on a package now? No doubt. Amazon is very popular with millions of people and millions of people more have a big love for the company; me included. However, as wonderful as Amazon is, they do have a side of their business that some would consider creepy. In fact, some people say it is getting creepier and creepier, each passing day. Tune in to learn about their experiments with emotion detection, tracking every inch of your body (literally) and the ever controversial facial recognition software – Rekognition. If you don’t have a problem with companies gathering data on you because you have “nothing to hide” then, I HIGHLY recommend you listen to this special episode.
