Telescreens are fictional devices which operate as both televisions and security cameras. They feature in George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four as well as all film adaptations of the novel.

This is from Samsung Global Privacy Policy – SmartTV Supplement which connects to the Internet, has both a camera and microphone to make your TV experience more “fascinating:

Samsung’s SmartTV service offers a set of features that provide enhanced video content, customised TV, movie, and other content recommendations, connections to social networking services, and the ability to control and interact with your SmartTV with gestures and voice commands. We collect, use, share, and store information through your SmartTV in the ways described in the Samsung Privacy Policy. This Supplement provides additional details about the privacy practices of some SmartTV features.

I feel much more safer, don’t you?

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.
