In Arkansas, that time has arrived. For the first time, Amazon has received search warrants demanding access to audio recordings and other data transmitted to their servers by an Amazon Echo device, which uses voice controls to play music and interact with other “smart” home appliances. The warrants, issued by a court in Benson County, demand anything recorded by an Amazon Echo device belonging to a murder suspect during two days in November of last year

This will be interesting to see if Amazon fights it like Apple did or rolls over without a fight like Yahoo did.

If Amazon does not fight it, their Echo sales could plummet. Even though they record only a few seconds after the appliance hears the word 'Alexa', it could still gain a bad reputation.

I agree with you. I believe as Google gets better, people will leave Amazon for the Google version. I think its much like when Apple was the first smartphone and ruled but then Google/Android got better and bigger, now Android rules.
