Mattel has an evil "parenting" gadget like Echo.

Google TV certainly breaks this law. People are better NEVER connecting Smart TV to Internet, but using PS4 or some media box for Netflix etc. Most Smart TV makers seem to have abandoned their own GUI for Google's Android TV, which apart from being spyware, is a rubbish UX for TVs.

1984 was really about 1948 politics. However Orwell would be amazed that every democracy has allowed the Corporate "Big Brother" spying on their citizens via Browser stats, web cookies, clear pixels, javascript etc on the Internet as well as evil IoT personal data monetising products, Facebook (a dictator's wet dream), Echo, Spot, Siri, Chrome Browser, Chrome OS/Chrome Book, Android wearables, Android on phones, iOS, Windows 10, Android TV and etc.
