Name of the Document: “Bid for Access to Amazon Echo Audio in Murder Case Raises Privacy Concerns”
Location: New York Times
Context: The Amazon Echo has recorded a murder suspect in their home, and lawyers are eager to investigate the audio recordings as a means of unraveling the case. Amazon is opposed to this, citing a security breach.
Potential Relevance for the Future: This case evokes similar issues that have arisen with Apple phones and suspects of large-scale violence, as lawyers and officials have sought to unlock the phones of perpetrators to determine their motives. Like Amazon, Apple has refused. Still, these are entirely issues of our contemporary technological and political climate.
