Submission + - New Samsung TV Watches You Watching It (msn.com)

CanHasDIY writes: Straight out of 1984, Samsung has unveiled a new series of telescreens with integrated cameras and microphones, complete with facial and voice recognition software. Best of all, there appears to be no physical indication of the mic and camera's status, so consumers have no way of knowing when they're being monitored, or by whom... and if you don't find the idea of a TV that watches you creepy enough, apparently Samsung's Terms of Service include a clause allowing third-party apps to make use of the monitoring system, and use the data gathered for their own purposes.

Nothing Orwellian about that...
