According to recent Nielsen statistics 56% of the households in the US own a video game console. Unbeknownst to many Americans this can be an open invitation to let big brother into your house.

Disguised as a video game add-on, Microsoft’s Kinect is the all seeing eye that sits on top of your TV watching your every move, listening to every conversation and even monitoring vital health information.

Now imagine if the Government went door to door and wanted to put a black box on top of your TV (and I’m not talking about your cable box) that did the same things, hopefully you would tell them hell no and immediately get out of your house.

But since the Kinect is disguised as entertainment most people will gladly accept it.

Below are some eye opening facts and quotes to think about before you make that purchase this fall.

Kinect will monitor the number of viewers in a room and check to see if the number of occupants exceeded a certain threshold set by the content provider. If there are too many warm bodies present, the device owner would be prompted to purchase a license for a greater number of viewers.

Coupled with the Xbox One, Kinect will now be able to hear and understand two people talking at once,, even detecting whether mouths are open in a dark room.

Inside the new Kinect 2 will be a high-resolution camera and a high-fidelity microphone, and gamers have already trashed Microsoft for the potential Kinect 2 has for peering into homes.

The new Kinect can see in the dark, pick out human voices in a noisy living room and read your heart rate just by looking at your face. It was unveiled by Microsoft last week as a fixture of the fall-releasing Xbox One. The thing has to be plugged in for the console to work, and is in some way already checking out what’s going on in the room it’s in.

Microsoft is actually trying to integrate Kinect into the classroom, sold as a learning tool Kinect will continue to spy on your child all day in school and at home.

Developed by PrimeSense, Kinect can interpret specific gestures – allowing for true hands-free control using infrared sensors, a camera and microchip to track the movement of individuals in a 3D space. While not confirmed, some experts suggest PrimeSense’s technology was used to train soldiers.

The new capabilities work alongside improvements to Kinect that allow it to track thumbs, 25 joints of up to six people, and heart rates by scanning a face. While the multiplayer gaming applications for multiple voice processing are obvious, Microsoft is also aiming its Xbox One console firmly for TV and entertainment.

After reading all the capabilities the Kinect has we all know this personal information would never be accessed by our loving Government without a warrant, or be passed on to the FBI, CIA or DEA to be scrutinized in America’s secret courts.

Why Every Person Should Ditch Their iPhone

As Apple slave goods continue to dominate every corner of the technological market, there are more and more reasons surfacing as to why consumers should not support this company.

Before you decide to spend another hard-earned dollar on Apple products, you should take the time to review their ridiculous privacy policy that entitles them to every confidential piece of information you compile while using your iPhone.

If that doesn’t stop you right there, perhaps you should take a look at the inhumane working conditions inside their Chinese factories that now come equipped with suicide nets to prevent workers from jumping to their death.

I could go on and on about all the terrible practices Apple institutes on both sides of the coin, but the one that is most disturbing is Apple’s assault on basic human rights. I would categorize the ability to use my phone’s camera for pictures and video recording as a basic human right.

This will be drastically regulated in the near future with the institution of U.S. Patent No. 8,254,902 better known as “apparatus and methods for enforcement of policies upon a wireless device.” The patent granted in August 2012 gives Governments, businesses, and network owners the right to disable your camera, wi-fi and video capabilities on an iPhone for any reason, at any time. Apple, being the sneaky innovators they are, will pre-package this application into the phones and most likely all other mobile products in the future.

“The NSA Is Lying”: U.S. Government Has Copies of Most of Your Emails Says NSA Whistleblower

DemocracyNow.org – National Security Agency whistleblower William Binney reveals he believes domestic surveillance has become more expansive under President Obama than President George W. Bush. He estimates the NSA has assembled 20 trillion “transactions” — phone calls, emails and other forms of data — from Americans. This likely includes copies of almost all of the emails sent and received from most people living in the United States. Binney talks about Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act and challenges NSA Director Keith Alexander’s assertion that the NSA is not intercepting information about U.S. citizens.
