TV watches us.

Is your TV watching you? Latest models raise concerns - Technology on NBCNews.com

I read a few articles on how smart TVs can watch us. That's ^^ one of them. Does any one have more info, on it?

A piece of black tape over the camera lens solves that problem once and for all. Peel it off when you want to Skype.

What about the microphone? I forgot to mention that. I would never buy a smart TV. I setup one for a friend & it insisted that she have a Google account & that she connect it to her router. I told her to return it but she didn't.
