CONSUMER REPORTS: IS YOUR COFFEEMAKER TRACKING YOU? 
Thanks to the growing constellation of smart devices collectively known as the Internet of Things, common everyday devices can offer an appealing level of convenience quite literally by collecting data on the habits of users. But a new investigation by Consumer Reports reveals that these devices can also send a steady flood of personal data to corporate servers, where it’s saved and shared, and can be used in ways consumers can’t control.  For many consumers, it may be entirely unclear which information stays on a connected device and what goes out to the Internet. And when they do learn the details, they can be mortified. For example, when Mattel announced plans to launch Hello Barbie, a Wi-Fi connected doll that holds conversations with children (by using remote servers), parents' groups cried foul. The Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood launched a petition aimed at stopping the toy maker from producing the doll.
