Re: Robots and Pizza, I don't think so

For the same reasons that we have more concern about IoT junk and laptop malware that activates the camera. My phone is at least somewhat controllable by me, while IoT equipment and most likely any robot built by a big tech company will run black box firmware that I can't easily change. If my phone gets hacked, the microphone is dangerous, but the cameras will only see what I have in my pocket for almost all of the time, while a laptop or other device with a camera mounted less movably can see much more. And probably most importantly, if I don't want my phone hearing something, I can put it in a box and it can't sneak around to listen in.
