A few years ago, Samsung and Sony admitted that they're listening (and most probably watching too) their customers via smart tvs:eek: Not sure about the details, particularly about Sony, but you can google the case and learn more about it.

Same here.
Though the reason for their attention (or disdain) might be a bit different :eek:

Not really, they just tracked all kind of information like viewing habits and so on, I don't believe anyone would spy via webcam on a massive scale, way too much data to handle, it would be crazy expensive, and you get nothing out of it (how many people are watching the show? are they drinking beer? sure it might be valuable marketing information but not THAT valuable).

I think only people in a sort of public position need to worry about targeted hacking/spying/whatever.

`Specially if you`re a man.

IT Security chaps at the office say that the sticker is the only way to be sure. I think they're wrong - the site needs to be nuked from orbit.
