Big Brother 'Wants To Spy On You Through Your TV'

From the Daily Mail:
When people download a film from Netflix to a flatscreen, or turn on web radio, they could be alerting unwanted watchers to exactly what they are doing and where they are.
Spies will no longer have to plant bugs in your home - the rise of 'connected' gadgets controlled by apps will mean that people 'bug' their own homes, says CIA director David Petraeus.
The CIA claims it will be able to 'read' these devices via the internet - and perhaps even via radio waves from outside the home.
Why more and more people are not outraged by the constant surveillance that the average American is under daily defies belief.We are watched on the on the road through traffic cams.We are watched in the stores we visit.Many of you would be shocked by the detailed information that the Federal government has compiled on each one of us.They know who our friends are.They no our medical history.They know what our political and religious beliefs are.They know our spending and eating habits.Even your phone calls are monitored by the NSA.Their is very little Big Brother doesn't know about us and most of us could care less.

One of the reasons I think we are so apathetic to the governments prying eyes is television.Through programs like NCIS,Person of Intrest,and any of the CSI shows we have become desensitized to surveillance.What can be so bad about Gibbs using it to catch a 'bad guy' every week?He would never use such things to compile information on a 'good guy' like me?Think again,darlin.
