There is also a major difference in expectation. While I despise Bloat 10's Spyware-as-a-Service model it is an OS for computers. One would reasonably expect the computer to connect to the Internet and that would some communication back to the mothership even if only to get updates and patches. Cayla is a doll marketed at children who should not be expected to understand privacy implications of the device when most adults have problems understanding these issues.
