    I thought my mom had gone off the deep end when she told me what was going on, till I saw it for myself. Then later I read about the TV manufacture admitted to spying on people.

    I asked my wife about the iPads. She does not have access to activate the cameras but she told me that Apple has access remotely to everything at any time.

    Glockula has a school laptop. Side note. We are in the highest taxed school district in the usa. More funny side note. His school is on the 1 rated coolest college town in the usa . and very liberal? He brought a talking trump pen to school and sooooo many kids were butt hurt. We plugged the and covered the camera. And store it in a backpack after use. Dont get me wrong the high school here is amazing...and the college campus is awesome aswell. But its oddly liberal hotspot in the most conservitave stronghold in the country...Lola

    That's why I've always covered the webcams ,microphones or anything that can be used to see or track me. Either that, or I physically disable them. I also recommend using TOR Browser instead of the usual Chrome or Internet Explorer. Don't know how far back the manufacturers have been putting spyware in Television sets, though. Too many people playing pretend NSA these days..

    You got that right Al. I can't imagine the embarrassment if they have video of my wife drooling and grinding her teeth, or me sleep-walking, or God forbid the nights she was drunk and horny .
    Hell, on second thought , may make some big bucks off of that video .

    I have a good working TV that I guarantee has not been tampered with. It is a 20" JVC from 1990 and it still works great!
