Everyone says this, but if you think about it for more than a minute you realize it’s impractical and unrealistic

How exactly would it listen to you? Obviously they don’t listen LIVE to millions of devices. Store your every word into a database? That’s illegal wiretapping in most states and Google Legal wouldn’t fuck with that. Even if they did: what keywords would they look for, and how is any of that data any more useful to them than the data you willfully hand over? (e.g. Search queries, cross-site cookie tracking)

You should be more skeptical about real, scary data harvesting, not theoretical nonsense like this
