Is your TV listening to you? Do you really want it to?

I suppose that it was only a matter of time before these so-called smart devices were used to purposed other than what they were intended. Samsung has recently issued a warning to watch what you are saying around their smart TV.

“Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party.”
Indeed, it seems that the third party (Nuance Communications) has a government connection.

I guess all I can say is be smarter than your house and devices.
