Re: oh hum

If the privacy agreement said that this data would be shared with a specific, named, third party, and only that third party, only for the purposes of voice recognition, and would not be stored at all once the recognition was done, there would probably be less uproar -- tinfoil hat brigade excepted.

It's the "we're listening to your living room, and who knows who we're giving that data to, because we certainly don't" clause that's really bothersome.
