TVs Ain't What They Used To Be ... another shocked-to-the-core revelation about our worse than BIG BROTHER society, which has been established by decade upon decade of stealth and psycho cunning. The following article-snippet just makes this Big Cat that much happier that she doesn't watch TV, and hasn't since 'they' the gov did the whole frequency change thing where you had to buy a new TV or get a black box... well, given her location that didn't work, and the Kougaress is NOT cutting down her trees just so she can be mind-numbed by TV CIRCUS CIRCUS entertainment. Be that as it may, the following info is an effing sci fi nightmare.
I’m terrified of my new TV: Why I’m scared to turn this thing on — and you’d be, too
I just bought a new TV. The old one had a good run, but after the volume got stuck on 63, I decided it was time to replace it. I am now the owner of a new “smart” TV, which promises to deliver streaming multimedia content, games, apps, social media, and Internet browsing. Oh, and TV too.
The only problem is that I’m now afraid to use it. You would be too — if you read through the 46-page privacy...
...More troubling is the microphone. The TV boasts a “voice recognition” feature that allows viewers to control the screen with voice commands. But the service comes with a rather ominous warning: “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.” Got that? Don’t say personal or sensitive stuff in front of the TV.
You may not be watching, but the telescreen is listening. policy. ~trove.com/me/content/yFfoW~
