Bose is one of the big brands of great quality headphones over the last few years, they have articles that keep their strength and value over great lengths of time and use, people keep preferring this brand rather than adventuring into others of the same category; but lately there has been some scandals regarding a serious argument of their wireless technology of new headphones that has leveled up to a worst and increasing declaration of individual security breaches.

How is this possible? What’s going on?

Everything begun with the citizen Kyle Zak who shared openly his suspicions that the Bose’s application is gathering personal data through their wireless devices and then using it for sale to advertisers who want to predict all the roads to get to people and their desires and needs. It may be read as a regular conspiracy theory but it is actually quite possible, too real even.

Stopping Bose from collecting illegally personal data, music preferences, and other bits that are not anyone’s deal but the individual, is the goal. The lawsuit put together against Bose is for 5 million dollars, and the company has not answered to the issue, so legal action has remained at wait.

Turns out this event is not something new, regarding Bose or any other company, it is a lack of total respect to take things to such a matter where the data of personal and collective behavior is an object of sale. Doesn’t matter if it’s consciously or not, you should not be able to buy anyone’s information and even less being able to access to it just for advertising purposes.

The internet is pretty much corrupted now, the stalagmites of publicity are too heavy but they are thin and sometimes invisible. Users give private information so willingly every day because they are too used to the “good service” of the main companies that take great part of dominion over the general flow of the internet worldwide, nobody stops for too long in order to notice where they are going and why. That’s the problem of culture now, but the fact that companies take advantage of that is low, super low.

Basic information is GOLD

If the goal is to sell, then to secure the deal is better to have all the available information in order to do it correctly. Data privacy is often claim as an illusion because of the behavioral changes occurred in people’s routines, data mining is another way of violating rights but sadly most of the access to it is technically accepted consciously by the same users that later on the road can complain about it. Many alleged lawsuits like this sometimes do not go anywhere, nevertheless it is a serious argument that one of spying your habits through a device that supposed to be “secure” and personal. Wireless tech might be on the lookout for this situations, there’s still the need to prove the case right but the allegation does not imply something brand new at all, it is what it is and it has to be dealt with sooner than later.
