Ok first wasn't sure where to put this and I didn't want to argue about it, but has anybody looked at and read the new software terms and condition?

They have definitely changed I would elaborate but cant get it pulled back up, does anybody have the scoop?

I like Samsung, but God knows Google is just as bad as Apple 😔

I'd love to say one smartphone OS is better for individual best interests, but sadly that's not the case.

Google is actually a worse offender in data collection and allowing third party access in all honesty as well.

It was weird definitely looks different and it was in bold type, but I got a call and got busy and just skimmed it. Ofcourse I could be mistaken but I've never noticed it at all.

and yes I will likely update when I have too..

This is the part I thought was new was the second paragraph

My smart Television did an update and essentially had an agreement that I had to agree to in order to continue using their product. That I had to share everything with advertisers or discontinue using the television that I paid for months prior. We really need new privacy laws with all this electronics BS today. It's bad enough that we pay for these products that have become part of our lives and then they tell us oh btw we own you now.

yes he did. But doing so is a federal crime i believe. I dont think Apple would block it or turn it off.

i seen a couple years ago one manufacturer article that said the reason why tvs have gotten SO dam cheap is becuase the manufactures are making more money on the ads. They said the ad revenue is what actually makes them profit and its not the sale of the tv itself.
id gladly pay more for a tv without privacy invasion . but the almighty cheap spenders are in the majority and the rest of us have no choice

I would read it if I were you, the last thing that you want is to be turned into the Human Centipad.

Did it say anything about draining my battery despite being left plugged in about 20 minutes? I’d rather not go through Android levels of coding and permissions to lockdown my phone to just be a camera or MP3 player or notepad. Depending on how I feel today.

You mean they can sell your first born if you voted for Trump to the highest bidder?

You do know that some of those actually have written in them (as a joke) you sell your soul to the devil. It is a test to see who really reads the agreements.

Actually, they are probably like Google, track your every move and every word and they can sell or give whatever you write and where you go to anyone they choose.

That is why Google wrote Dragonfly for China.

Big Tech is very into 24/7 surveillance of the entire population at all times, so they can sell your life to the highest bidder.

As for smart TV's being so cheap, it is just like the iphone or android is doing. It is for tracking you.

I had Nielsen Co. call me about being a TV ratings person for the second time. I did it once in the 90's. I asked why are they still doing this when cable companies and streamers know who is watching what and when.

The lady sounded weird, and then said, well this is the last time we are sending out forms to people. We will be getting the information from the cable companies and streamers after this cycle. This was over a year ago.

So just as every word you write and every step you take is being recorded and for sale to anyone, so is everything you choose to watch on Television. It's all in the agreements you sign. We just got a new TV and had to electronically sign an agreement before it would complete the setup for the TV.

I don't update my 67 Chevy Malibu Super Sport, 396 w/ Dual Quads, overhead cams, Hooker Headers and Posi-traction.

Nothin on it ever needs someone else to make me "update" or go to dealers.

You don't have to either.
