Nobody appears to be suggesting that the suspect asked, “Alexa, how do I hide a body?” or anything along those lines. It appears that prosecutors hope that someone giving Alexa a command might have caused the system to record some background noises relevant to the case.

True story, when I bought my ipod touch 6g early last year, I asked siri "where to hide a dead body" as a joke, and she actually pulled up a map search with all the vacant lots In my area! Months later I heard apple "patched" it, and removed the question/answer from her database. Now if u ask she will say: "hmm...I USED to know the answer..."

I guess they got alarmed by the number of people asking where to hide bodies and realized that they were being irresponsible, and possibly assisting crimes...

If nothing else, perhaps Rogue One will point out to law enforcement and the federal government why encryption back doors are a bad idea.

OVERSIGHT AND PUBLIC DISCLOSURE ARE IN FACT THE SUPREME WEAPONS FOR THE PUBLIC GOOD. Encryption is just a tool....backdoors? Sometimes, we need to come in from the back because your mate likes doggy! Take this advice from a BACK-DOOR DADDY!

Concerned that a Trump administration might delete decades of weather data in an effort to make it more difficult to demonstrate climate change, scientists are reportedly frantically making copies of weather databases in Canada.

It appears paranoid, but Trump is not the only potential hazard. To prevent data loss is good precaution

After years of talking about augmented reality and location-based marketing, who would have thought that the killer app for these technologies would be a reboot of a 1990s kids’ game?
Any way you look at it, 2016 was a momentous year: a Presidential election, the Olympics, and a leap year. But what were the 2016 top tech stories?

Your Blogs  - 
 
You like stories about programming. Boy, do you. Four of the five most popular stories of the year—one of them by huge margins—were about programming topics: the “imposter syndrome” among programmers, how the programming languages you choose and learn affect how your brain works, the ever-popular story on COBOL programming, and the need for modernization of legacy systems such as mainframes. Other popular stories on programming subjects included eliminating daylight savings time and time zones through programming, things to learn from Apollo lunar module code, and a discussion of the worst software bug in history.
It's always informative to look back and see which blog posts garnered the most attention. What were our most popular stories this year?

Imagine being the CIO for a company that has to develop 7.4 billion individual products, deliver them correctly to more than 1.4 billion households around the world—and, moreover, do all that in a single night from one vehicle and driver. Sounds like a logistical nightmare, not to mention a supply chain challenge.
Ho ho ho, CIO! Think your job is tough? Imagine what it's like to be the North Pole CIO.

Except that unlike the real world Santa won't get hit by lots of bogus patent lawsuits and take down notices in the middle of December as competitors try and bankrupt him.

Back in the 1980s, it was fashionable to draw business lessons from great military minds, preferably ones who were centuries old. But even military minds from this century have guidance to offer business. One example is how to write email more efficiently.
The most potent military weapon isn't a gun or a bomb, but clear and precise communication. Guidelines for writing military email can help you in your work.

They don't have any of their previous stuff anymore. It's just a standard Thai and Vietnamese restaurant now.

Only place in the treasure valley where you can get Peruvian food. Great stuff and they really pay attention to their customers. They show all the Boise state games.

Don't bring your kids here! All the restaurants associated with the hotel are 21 and over only, which we discovered *after* we arrived, bringing my daughter, to stay for five days. So much for the buffet.

Somebody claiming to be from this company just came to our door, with no identifying logos or anything, and started asking about our medical conditions. Not only is this inappropriate and a violation of our privacy, it's a violation of national HIPAA regulations. I suggest you ask your salespeople to follow the law before somebody with more time on their hands than I decides to take you to court.
