Your TV may be "eavesdropping"!!

Recently in the news, some TV models from Samsung have a 'voice command' feature. Just say what you want it to do.
But be careful about personal conversations or cursing someone, or noting you won a big Lottery, as the data may be available to unknown others.
However, Samsung has issued a "privacy statement", wherein..
"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 through your use of Voice Recognition,"

There is a link on the page as to the "Smart TV Privacy Policy".

Hey.. you can disable that feature, and still use the manual remote!

Creepy, no? :-#
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!
