Re: Anymore proof needed that

All fine if you are a sys admin, or a big IT team for roll outs.

But, for the average computer literate user, the problem is knowing what snooping software is installed, or planned to be installed in a future auto update.

The Xbox One is a prime example..... the camera always on and transmitting - in your own home... always on!!

Probably one of the contributing reasons why it's launch was a flop, once this fact became highlighted.

Their proffered solution was to unplug the camera each time you switched off.

What the hell is going on there?
