late to the party here but seems to me that vtech are just stating the obvious. I wouldn't give their various bits of crap house room, but the fact is that using the internet for anything leaves you vulnerable to some degree. latest example I can think of is the proposal to spaff bank details via a common api. vtech have been underhand with the ts and cs (which is hardly new) and it looks as though they aren't even trying, but functionally the end result is pretty much the same. for example consider Google voice search vs. Amazon echo vs. vtech piece of plastic crap. not much in it IMO.
