It's your big Samsung TV that's watching you. Oh, and listening to you. Yes, we must now look for little microphone icons to check whether we're being listened to. It concerns the voice-recognition feature, vital for everyone who finds pressing a few buttons on their remote far too tiresome...

This is just the tip of the iceberg as more and more everyday appliances incorporate microphones and cameras that can be switched on to monitor our conversations. This is already happening with many new cars, and Microsoft wants to implement AI that records everything you do on your PC into their latest Windows operating system. Soon we will see soundproof safe rooms being added to homes just to be able to have a private conversation.
