CanCon Podcast Ep. 117: Should I unplug my Amazon Echo (and other tech questions)?

Amazon Echo line

The CanCon podcast crew is back at the mics and this week they took some questions from social media about technology. Hot topics include how Amazon Echo can accidentally send a message to someone without being asked, as well as what’s been happening in tech lately.

The other questions that the team tackles are: should I unplug my Amazon Echo? How should the government support the Canadian tech ecosystem? Why did the Essential Phone fail? Is wireless charging for real? Will automation replace your job?

Join us as this week’s smaller CanCon crew — BetaKit editor-in-chief Douglas Soltys and MobileSyrup managing editor Patrick O’Rourke — answer a variety of reader questions.
