Your television may be listening to you.
 
I heard this on the local news last night.

That is something. Big Brother-like for sure.

Well it is about to get an education then!

It pays to have an old dumb TV!

HAL 9000 (2001: A Space Odyssey) is just around the corner. I hope he/she is an interesting conversationalist!

Are you listening Dave?

Yes. What do you want?

It may be listening but it doesn't respond

Not concerned...

For now, a simple solution -- don't use the voice activation feature. But something tells me that in a generation or two, you'll have no choice. Big Brother may be a little late, but definitely seems to be here.

BUT...it was said that not using the voice activation makes other things not work as well as they should.


We took the trapeze down from the bedroom, just in case.

Now I'm paranoid about my other appliances. What are they plotting against me?

tomwed 02-10-2015 09:51 AM

All this time I thought I was talking to myself.

Read George Orwell's 1984, I read that in high school English lit. I thought that it was a complete fairy tail then. Now it starts to get real.

No wonder my toast is always burned.

tomwed 02-10-2015 10:04 AM

ahhh
Remember when 1984 and 2001 was the future?
Those were the days.
I hope I didn't say that out loud. I wouldn't want to offend.
