Hi,

Thanks for this. I nearly fell off my chair laughing. Dr. Bose meets the Edelson legal firm who are becoming incredibly rich by spanking tech firms for their casual disregard of privacy.

Cheers,
David Neice

The invasion of our privacy via technology is disturbing. When you think this is really only the beginning, where do you figure we will be in perhaps only 5 more years if electronic monitoring is allowed to continue unabated ?

Calling companies for inquiries, many will warn you in advance that the call will be recorded for ''quality assurance purposes'' (yeah...sure). At least they warn you about it so you can decline.

Bose seems to be hiding behind a cloud of smoke to steer you into your permission to collect data on your private behaviours without your consent.

Shame on them. There's another company to put into my "avoid" folder.

No listenable mid range either.

Has it just dawned on everybody that data is being monitored? Wireless or not, all data is gathered & analyzed. Welcome to The 21st Century...

And of course this is being monitored, too, and the Bose assassins are on their way to your homes...

The surveillance team would have substance abuse problems from hearing how much the product sucks all day.

I hope Bose gets hammered hard with this. CBC did a study on Marketplace that revealed phone apps are commonly being used to collect user data. Free apps are one thing....there's no excuse for this behavior when one pays $350 for premium headphones....at that price the least one should expect is some privacy.

Show some class for a change. :x

Can't recall the last time I heard the words "Bose" and "class" in the same sentence. Now, I suppose we can relate Bose and "class action" in the same sentence :roll:
