In a troubling new development in the domestic consumer surveillance debate, an investigation into Samsung Smart TVs has revealed that user voice commands are recorded, stored, and transmitted to a third party.

The company even warns customers not to discuss personal or sensitive information within earshot of the device.

The new Samsung controversy stems from the discovery of a single haunting statement in the company's "privacy policy," which states: "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."

What if the T.V. had to listen to the drivel coming out of its own speakers 24/7?

I would think it would create a vortex of suck so strong it could implode.
A flat screen with an hdmi input is all you need.

Yup. Me too.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

I think this will mark the beginning of a new age, one in which the tv set has to listen to non stop bs and drivel from it's owners instead of it being just the other way around.

what about this..


"Appliances and products ranging from televisions and toasters to bed sheets, light bulbs, cameras, toothbrushes, door locks, cars, watches and other wearables are being packed with sensors and wireless connectivity," the report says. "The audio and video sensors on IoT devices will open up numerous avenues for government actors to demand access to real-time and recorded communications."

..bedsheets..?
