CBS: Is SmartTV getting too smart?

That kind of reminds me of the question if a computer can make mistakes. Most people tend to say it can't and I have to agree. When mistakes are made they are usually the result of the actions of the person behind the keyboard.

Even bugs which come with an operating system are problems created or overlooked by the people who designed it. Those kinks mostly rear their ugly heads when the system is up and running and have to be eliminated by the experts.

So, is SmartTV getting too smart? Nope, the designers either have overlooked this problem or created it for a special reason. In case you still are not aware of the what the problem is; the TV reacts to voice commands and speech recognition can pick up on personal information which is sent to a third party.

Big Brother is already making the rounds on the Internet and now he is slowly but surely creeping into our living rooms. I don't know about you, but I don't want this uninvited company. Maybe we can come up with a way to outsmart our SmartTV. There has got to be something we can do to avoid our TV from snooping on us.

Yes, there is: pull the plug!
