I mean, they can measure your heart beat with lasers now, they can listen to you with a lot of devices. Who knows if my cellphone’s listening right now. Alexa has already been in the news a lot”
Looks like there is no way out of the web-net!!
If the truth shall be spoken then the man’s definitely got a point. We all know how risky it could be for some people. However, surviving without any media connection is also not possible!!

As noted by TMZ, Steve’s statement appears like a reaction to the comment Instagram CEO made. Adam told CBS This Morning that Instagram is not an app that eavesdrop on people’s conversations and private life. However many coincidences have been spotted in the past several years.
