Time for Tucson to pass a city ordinance invalidating any state law they deem incompatible with the federal or state constitutions, I should think...

Yeah, are we really supposed to believe it's pure coincidence the photo is arranged in such a way that the Congressman is the only one between two guys?

Have you checked the cast of "My Husband's Not Gay" to see if he's in it? I 100% get that vibe.

On the one hand, yeah.

On the other hand, there are a lot of software engineers out there nowadays with a lot of experience processing enormous amounts of data.

On the third hand, was it really much comfort to the inhabitants of East Germany that the Stasi didn't have the manpower to listen to all their phone recordings?

"TV, stop sharing my sensitive data"
"I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that"

Well, if you use the voice feature to search the interwebz, then data from voice capture will be sent out to a third party internet search engine. That would come under that disclaimer.

Similarly, if you want to search for a show by name, your TV's going to have to send your search terms out to a listings provider.

Of course, it would really help if they were more precise in their language so one could distinguish between this kind of strictly necessary sharing and them just sending a captured wav file off to wespyonyou.com for blackmail purposes (all kinds of arrangements that could be made which would benefit Samsung without this technically being qualified as "selling" your data).

Protip, though - Samsung isn't the only one, they just got noticed because it was a recent addition to their terms. LG at least has always said they'll share your voice.

Let's say it before he can: "I have a book" (and a complete suspension of all critical thinking).

Ross Baker is very upset that the chicks in Robert Palmer videos scared off perfectly acceptable male actors with their intimidating presence. Mention Eurythmics videos to him and he will curl up in a ball and whimper.
