    • 2023 February 17, Anna Kodé, quoting Suzanne Woods, “Unwanted Connection: Who Has Control of Your Smart Home?”, in The New York Times[1], →ISSN:
      “Full control over one’s smart home is, at least in the present tense, an impossibility,” she said. “Part of that is because the whole purpose of a smart device is to give up control to someone or something — whether that is a device, a platform, its code. Users delegate work, thinking or management to smart devices.”
