        I have nothing to hide.. if it wants to listen in on my during "quiet time".. so be it...


        I remember before xbox one came out... they were going to make the connect... smarter.. if you were going to "rent" a movie.. it would count the people in the room and charge $x per person!!!!!

        people flipped out on all that MS wanted to do, so they toned it down .. its only time...

          Not to start a "thing" but the "I have nothing to hide" mindset can be an extremely dangerous one to have.

              Whoda thunk it?

              I simply don't understand these things and why someone would invite them into their home.

                  These home devices remind me of the vampire movies I would watch as a kid when I would yell at the tv "Don't invite him into your house! He's going to bite you on the neck!"

                    It actually reminds me of Ernestine, the telephone operator from Rowan and Martin's Laugh-in eaves dropping on phone calls from the telephone switch board...
