Big Brother - The Dangers of SmartTVs

In echoes of Orwell's "1984", it seems that SmartTVs that work on voice command may in fact be listening to your conversations and passing them onto the company (or other parties) that manufactured the TV.

The Telegraph quotes the privacy statement of Samsung:
"Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party.

If you do not enable Voice Recognition... while Samsung will not collect your spoken word, Samsung may still collect associated texts and other usage data so that we can evaluate the performance of the feature and improve it." 
I would point out that aside from this risk, were a SmartTV, mobile or pc with cam to be hacked your conversations and/or video image can be transmitted to others without your knowledge or consent.

Placing any of those devices into standby mode will not negate the risk. Only if you unplug and/or remove the batteries will the product be completely deactivated.

You have been warned!

This of course is not a problem to the retards who appear in and watch the TV series Big Brother, as they cannot function without being watched.

    At least that is one thing in my house that takes notice of what I have to say.

  2. This is why everyone should buy a parrot & teach it to say "bollocks" and "jihad" repeatedly (or.. for the tech savy one of those hackable wireless dolls).
