Kathleen A. McGee comments for CNET on privacy issues associated with Sony’s robot dog Aibo, a device equipped with facial recognition cameras and always-listening microphones, warning that “there are legitimate privacy concerns about the products in our homes that gather data about us.” McGee says that information can be “bundled and sold in ways that the consumer is not necessarily aware of or may not approve of if she knew about them…What if I'm on a health care regimen with my doctor and I cheat on my diet? Am I now going to be profiled for insurance companies in a less than attractive way?" She cautions that the privacy policy may not offer much guidance on how to erase the device’s memory: “The privacy policy is designed to mitigate regulatory concerns…It is not an instrument for the consumer's use. Full stop."
