Thinking about getting a ‘smart’ Samsung TV? Think again.
Thanks to Hannes Sjoblad for the tweet.
Footnote: In Orwell’s 1984 there was a ‘telescreen’ in Winston’s apartment.
“Any sound that Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it, moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard. There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork.”
