He said he was being paranoid about it. He said he was worried about Google losing the info and hackers getting information about him. What information are they gonna get anyway? All they're gonna be able to tell is your usage of the light bulbs, not even your name.
And they don't know what you're doing, what the hell? That is, unless all you do all day is turn lights on an off. Then you might have a problem.
I thought conspiracy theories had died off, but it seems people are going back to them for no reason. Are you the guy in the avatar? Google doesn't care about you or seeing you naked.
