Not the TV! It is - quite literally - Orwellian. As the Toronto Star summarizes, "A voice command feature on Samsung’s Smart TV could allow the interception of private living room conversations and their transmission to third parties, the company says in a privacy statement highlighted Monday by online news site the Daily Beast." So if you have one of the TVs (and I do, here) then you have to be careful what you say, as it will be sent to a third party, transcribed, and then - well, who knows what then?
