This week on the “Texas Standard” radio program, we’re talking about all the technology devices that are continually listening to you (usually waiting for a command) and whether you should be worried about where that audio is going and how it’s being used. In particular, we talk about a research paper suggesting that about 250 Android apps are listening for embedded TV signals without users’ knowledge. And we also get into the new Amazon Echo devices that add a camera to the always-listening Alexa mix.
