We've had Smart Tvs that record conversations in the home, we have an influx of apps on mobiles which through ridiculous permissions gain access to texts, photos and contacts we have toys that spy on children.

Complaints have been made about a doll that has a recording function and also has a built in data collector for info such as the child's current location.

People fear it could be hacked by criminals. They should be just as worried by Big Brother.

That's sick isn't it? You'd like to think there would come a time where a line would be drawn by all. I mean invading anyone's privacy is a douchey thing to do, but leave the children out of this! Agh.

I know It's like asking a wall to do something but good grief.

All I can do is shake my head.

Actually, as far as spying for the benefit of advertisers..... who better to spy on than children. They are fresh new consumers with a whole lifetime of purchases ahead of them.

Also, this reminds me of when Furbies (I think that's what they were called) were banned from the UN.
