It’s too easy for us to maybe forget that the “every man” doesn’t understand, or care, about the inner machinations of the “smart” toys they own and use. It’s worse that the companies exploit this naivete, and not the customers fault that they do so. Many of my friends and family look at this stuff as “woooh wooh” <wavy hands> “that’s too complicated for me”. They just follow trends.

Because they have no knowledge or experience upon which to form a solid opinion, and wouldn’t know what search terms  to use (without falling foul of the media nonsense, or the so-called YouTube reviewer “experts”) they’re basically lambs to the slaughter. It’s disgusting.

There used to be "Consumer Reports" type magazines and TV programmes,  these have been well and truly squeezed out these days...

TimFox:
"Consumer Reports" magazine (US) is still in publication as a mailed paper magazine.
Unfortunately, they seem to have moved their more detailed reports to their website, available to subscribers.

I was a subscriber a few years ago, but found the content disappointing - lacking teeth!
