Default Is your TV watching you?

Samsung’s 2012 top-of-the-line plasmas and LED HDTVs offer new features never before available within a television including a built-in, internally wired HD camera, twin microphones, face tracking and speech recognition. While these features give you unprecedented control over an HDTV, the devices themselves, more similar than ever to a personal computer, may allow hackers or even Samsung to see and hear you and your family, and collect extremely personal data.

While Web cameras and Internet connectivity are not new to HDTVs, their complete integration is, and it's the always connected camera and microphones, combined with the option of third-party apps (not to mention Samsung's own software) gives us cause for concern regarding the privacy of TV buyers and their friends and families.

What an excellent article.

You'd have to be bonkers to buy one of those spy devices and put it in your home.

Will all TVs eventually have these features though?

It needs to be nipped in the bud by consumers NOT buying these products.

As per the other tv related thread:

Insulating tape over the camera and microphone slots.

Don't give the tv a default gateway: just use it for internal media files.

In a word, no.

Have you any idea of the logistics involved in the scale of such a monitoring operation as the one you suggest?

Relax, put your feet up, flick it on...

Why would they need to do that when everybody records every move on a mobile handset and a laptop keyboard anyway?

Because my faux naive poster friend...to be an all-encompassing fool-proof cage of 24 hours a day surveillance, it has to be all-encompassing.

This technology is not new, tptb have been waiting until the public would be ready to be duped into thinking this is a good thing.

They will have much more in store!

The term is faux-naif.

I would never have one of those in my home.

Our latest TV is 'smart' which I think means you connect it up to the internet to watch iplayer etc, use apps (goodness knows why), and share the content of all your connected PCs etc. I see the benefit of the latter (streaming photos, films and music), but what on earth is the 'protection' offered by the TV - there doesn't seem to be any whatsoever. So, your whole home network is then 'open' to your ISP or whoever else is watching and listening.

You don't seem to be able to get a decent big TV without all that these days.

I simply haven't connected it. There's no camera or mic of course - I wouldn't have bought it, but I bet these are the next things to come in as 'standard'...

We must've been lucky then, or the quality's dropped. Have one Samsung screen that's going strong after 9 years, and another 7. The latter went wrong last year but even though it was well out of guarantee they did fix it for free (sounds like they probably fitted a mic at the same time though ).

Is that right? That's a very interesting fact...I'm going to use that to seem even more haughty and prick-like in the future.

We had the best 'smart TV' in the world.

It decided to pack itself back in the box, sell itself on eBay, and never return again.

... it even sent some money to our bank account as payment.

No more BBC. No more propaganda news. No more repeats. No more Jeremy Kyle.
