One county follows a system of naming streets relative to one temple. Not the nearest, and not most cities. Your own link betrays your lack of reading comprehension. At the time it was founded, it probably made sense for the people to number their streets off the most culturally significant feature of town. Every city in Utah outside Salt Lake County names their streets relative to their own Main Street (which rarely features a temple) which can run East-West or North-South, and Center Street (which, obviously, rune in the other direction).
Also dollars. The intent was dollars.
Yeah, me neither. Must have been a dream.
It seems more plausible to interpret the statement to say that while you are issuing voice commands, either via a keyword that can be recognized locally or by pressing a button, THEN any statements that may be unrelated to the functions of the set may be inadvertently picked up and sent to Samsung's (or partners') servers.
Still, even with a favorable interpretation, it seems like an unnecessary, risky, costly "feature" that has only a marginal benefit to customers. Are we so lazy that even pressing a series of buttons takes too much effort? As an accessibility feature, fine, it makes some sense, but it should be turned off by default.
