Walmart Patents Surveillance Tool That Can Eavesdrop On Workers

WEB Notes: Do not become spooked folks, you love this stuff! You love being spied on, ol big brother has been doing it for years and you just have not noticed or do not care. Hey, ol TSA feels you up at the airport, ah well you say. You post your life on social media, who cares you say. So who cares if Walmart listens to your conversations, you offer them up for free anyway. Yes, I am being sarcastic, but this is the new world we live in. You could go hide under a rock I suppose, but that will not make it go away and it will not help our Father spread His Word. Use the tools you have to spread His Word, share the ministries that help you understand His Letter with those tools.

It looks like Amazon and Walmart, which have long been battling it out in the retail arena, both want to keep a very close eye on their workers. Earlier this year, Amazon patented smart wristbands that can make sure a warehouse worker’s hands are always moving. Now, its rival has patented an audio surveillance system, which can be used to listen to conversations between employees and customers at checkout. Before you freak out and think that Walmart has been listening to all the juicy gossip you’ve been dropping at checkout lines, know that it’s still just a patent. And, of course, the company has refused to confirm or deny whether it’s planning to actually use the technology to spy on its workers.

A spokesperson told BuzzFeed News:

“We’re always thinking about new concepts and ways that will help us further enhance how we serve customers, but we don’t have any further details to share on these patents at this time.”

  1. And so is this web-site I’m sure! I have gotten likes from people through Disqus for posts made on this web-site that know where I live because my Google location was running on my smart phone
    When I opened that address to see who it was? It was a sex hook up sight within my Zip Code!!! I kid you not! So if that is possible for them! It is for anyone else who has the capability!! I turn off location on my smart phone, but I doubt that matters with Google! 👎😈 Point being. We’re at the point already where you can’t hold a job without being hog tied to the techno-slave system. There will come a time when we will have NO Godly choice, but to cut the rope, or sell our soul! It becomes more difficult the longer we submit to the opposite… Stay strong in the Word!👊👍😁

    • Now Disqus may do something depending on your account specific settings, but World Events and the Bible does not. It is my site, sole creator and I answer to no one but the Man upstairs. Just for the record.

      • I know you have nothing to do with it Brandon. It was Disqus whom in my settings must have had my posts at this site open to public, outside this site. My settings have been re-adjusted to hopefully not allow that… No harm. Just saying, there are predators out and about. So beware to those who give ear.😊
