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.

Hopefully people won't blow this out of proportion and throw the baby out with the bathwater like they did on the Xbox. This sounds like a very useful feature. If you're worried about the government listening, you will likely be able to turn it off. And that's the best part, if it's easy to turn it off, then people the government are looking for won't use it, hence they won't be listening to it.
