Or do you think that other smart tvs somehow are not nearly as scary?
I haven't the faintest idea one way or the other - which is why I would like to have that information. When the information is available if it turns out that all the other smart TVs do exactly the same thing then I know not to buy a smart TV. If it turns out that most do and a few don't then that acts as the first filter to my buying decision. Not having that information available makes it impossible to make that decision.
