Samsung’s Smart TV problemer – hvor kundernes tale foran fjernsynet bliver sendt over internet til en tredjepart – kan perspektiveres ved denne Reddit brugers historie:
I started a new job today with Walk N’Talk Technologies. I get to listen to sound bites and rate how the text matches up with what is said in an audio clip and give feed back on what should be improved.
At first, I though these sound bites were completely random. Then I began to notice a pattern. Soon, I realized that I was hearing peoples commands given to their mobile devices. Guys, I’m telling you, if you’ve said it to your phone, it’s been recorded…and there’s a damn good chance a 3rd party is going to hear it.

Husk at det ikke kun er Samsung der sender dine private informationer over internet, hvis de har mulighed for det.
