MacVoices #18059: CES – PrivacyShield Provides Secure Blocking of Your Amazon Echo Device

We wrap up our CES coverage from Las Vegas with a visit to the Cone of Silence booth in Eureka Park to talk to Kyle Costello, Marketing, about their PrivacyShield device that provides on-demand privacy from the always-listening mics of the Amazon Alexa devices. By creating an air gap and filling it with white noise, and providing a visual cue for when engaged, you can be secure in having your confidential conversations without Alexa listening. Kyle covers how it works and when you can get yours.

This edition of MacVoices is sponsored by Smile, the makers of PDFpen and PDFpenPro, PDFpen for iPad, PDFpen for iPhone, PDFpen Scan+, as well as TextExpander for Mac and TextExpander for iPhone and iPad, as well as the new TextExpander for Windows. Great software to help you get more done.
