Google "The Moto X is apparently always listening for commands, the initiating command appears to be 'Ok Google Now' without having to load Google Now or select voice operation, after hearing this command the phone instantly responds with the information you require or performs the function you want, like providing directions or setting reminders or other Google Now functions." Google always listening in? Sure, that's not creepy at all or anything.

I really think its too early to know the extent to which you'll be able to control such a technology. For example, with the Xbox One, the Kinect knows to recognize your voice and only your voice.

Yeah, that's true. We'll see. Still, I have faith in Google to do the right thing here. It just strikes me as such an obvious potential problem that they can't possibly be that dumb, frankly speaking.

I hope they add goatee-detecting technology to the forward-facing camera, then.
