Has anyone read the terms of service for Kinect? You know, that thing you legally agreed to before using it for the first time? Of course you read
it, we all read those (sarcasm)
As the article in the link puts it, Kinect is "an attractive fun filled device intentionally brought in your home with 4 microphones, 2 cameras, an
infrared motion sensor, and a license to freely record and upload your activity". It's not as blatant or obvious as 1984, and it's certainly
prettier, but it's possibly worse. Having some hanky panky infront of it could be embarressing, but it could potentially also be watching what
you're smoking while playing your games or watching your movies as well.
Not content with 1 camera for every 16 people out in the towns and cities, not content with getting us all excited about getting us to keep our
personal diary where they can read it, and getting us to tag and identify all our friends and associates, now they're conning us into getting excited
about installing a camera into our homes as well.
But sure, the games are great fun, so it's all fine, it's not 1984 at all. Carry on
