News Apple Suspends Siri Grading Amid Privacy Scandal:
#1
[Image: 1*TYAzzTJ60x-qg5N81ElU9A.png]
                                                           Apple is in flames amid a recent privacy scandal that is sending some prevalent ripples through their community. A program called "Siri Grading" where third party contractors can listen in on private conversations between the user and Siri. 

                           This was allegedly used to better help improve the commands that a user may give. Apple came out and stated that only 1% of conversations had been listened to, but still, that small percentage was still quite a lot, considering that Siri activates on a "verbal hair trigger", they could have very well listened in on couples having sex, private conversations between patients and doctors, etc. 


                           According to a report, this information was leaked to the Guardian, and lead to a report by Apple via Bloomberg. They stated that the Siri Grading program will be suspended until further notice, and any future updates to iOS will include an option to opt out of it. 


                           Original article can be found here.


                                                             That was the news folks, have a good day, and stay safe out there.
