Last week, the search giant drew criticism because its Nest Secure hub, a web-connected home security system, includes a microphone, but it was never disclosed in hardware specs, marketing materials or on Nest's website.

I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.

At the time, Google said it was an "error" that the microphone was omitted from the product specs. The company also said the mic has never been activated.

Mistakes were made, but not by me. I didn't do it, nobody saw me, you can't prove anything.

But that hasn't satisfied committee members, who wrote a letter to Pichai demanding more information...The letter demands Pichai follow up with the committee by March 12.

"Stop! ...or I'll say stop again!"

If you don't exercise the power you have, then you don't actually have any power.
