This has got to be the stupidist most overpriced product imaginable. Most of us probably have several old, non-working earphone or headphone sets lying around that we could easily just cut off the plug on the end and use it as a blank. Or at worst just buy a cheap 99-cent earphone. Or is this supposed to be some kind of “pet rock” style usefulness?

Most of you even have a wired mike ready to turn on the lights when you speak the keyword out loud. Call it Alexa, Cortona, Google Home or whatever, it is still a more upfront version of what you are trying to stop from happening.

Go for the bluster and people won’t even realize things like System Idle Process could be someone using your power and cooling for untold parallel processing tasks.
