The world has changed after September 11th. It’s changed because we’re no longer safe. These words were used by the George W. Bush, elected President of the United States in 2000, to dictate the political direction for the 21st century.

Why be bothered about using a dishwasher when you're using the Internet? If there's any privacy concerns, what are you doing posting on forums and browsing the web?
All seems a bit much to me, anyways, who's doing the spying? Lets say there was one of these dishwashers in even 50% of a given countries population. Where is the manpower coming from to even begin to monitor that amount of info.

Is This a Camera In My TV box ???
the timing couldnt be more perfect if it is, they recently installed Digital boxes in every home locally that wants to watch more then 29 channels.
around the same time as the smart meters, about a month ago.
big brother is watching
That is an infrared receiver for the remote control. IR receivers all look alike. I guess they kind of do look like a miniature camera. Go to wall mart and buy an IR receiver for a circuit board, it will look exactly the same.
NO its not the IR receiver. There are 2 of those on the extreame left/right of that same glass. Since recording that video I've put a little piece of masking tape with black ink on it over that camera-location. The remote still works fine - and I verified the IR receiver locations by testing them with a cover too. Seeps better than 90% that IS a camera. Whether or not I ever got watched through it... who knows.

If your dishwasher is 'smart' (i.e. 'connected to the internet) it is a continuous indicator of your IP address, through that 'hook' I can tunnel into other devices, monitor times when your appliance is active, and perhaps even (go with me here) find a way to monitor the cross-signalling on your household power - all that wiring in your house is sure to carry spurious signals induced from inside your home....
Just spit balling ideas here... no flames necessary.
