Dan Goodin, with Ars Technica, reports that “Amazon devices will soon automatically share your Internet with neighbors.”
Barbara Krasnoff, with The Verge, explains that “The new network will share a small portion of your bandwidth with your neighbors.
I think Dan Goodin blows it out of proportion when he says, “Amazon’s experimental wireless mesh networking turns users into guinea pigs…. that leaves your personal privacy and security hanging in the balance.”
To be fair, Amazon has actually been very careful to ensure your personal privacy and security. See there white paper here.
My issue is that you are not being asked to participate, they are turning it on by default. You have to oft out. Taking bandwidth I am paying for without my permission is stealing. Amazon is wrong to do this.
For the last few years, I have been using Linux Mint. This week I switched back to Ubuntu. I am now running Ubuntu 20.04.2.0 LTS, code named Focal Fossa.
For those who only know about Windows and MacOS, Linux is another and different operating system. It is different because it is free and because the source code is available for inspection.
I have been running Ubuntu Linux since 2008. I used Fedora for a number of years, and then switched to Linux Mint. I still recommend Linux Mint for all home users. This is the system I have on both my mom’s computer and my wife’s parent’s computer.
So why did I switch? I recently have switch professions to the IT field. This means that I will need to stay current on news and threats directed to businesses. Ubuntu Linux and Red Hat Linux are two of the major players in this field. Hence the reason for the switch.
