    The government can barely get the mail delivered...you REALLY think they can do something sinister with your Amazon.com purchases?

    I have an Echo Dot in my bedroom and use it all the time. For those worried about it spying on you, they use the same cookies that your internet browser uses when you go online.

    Ever googled something and notice how that product magically has ads everywhere on other sites? Same thing.

    More likely they could listen into your inactive cell phone.
