OSNews, Generic OSes HD Guru writes that new HDTVs now have all the hardware (webcams, audio mics, Internet connectivity) and software (facial and speech recognition, etc) to make them ideal for data collection on those watching. Samsung, the article's focus, does not disclose what OS its new HDTVs use, making it hard to judge whether they are secure from hacking. A follow-up article prints Samsung's privacy statement along with evaluation by Gary Merson of HD Guru.

i'd simply return that tv. or never bought it at all since it has features i don't like.

it's not like you can only buy single tv model;) you can simply buy the one that agrees with your preferences
