Web connected cameras in my house watching my living room or bedroom bothers me, walking around with a microphone in my pocket also bothers me. One of those is less optional and more beneficial than the other. One constantly switches networks where the other is pretty constant. Would I prefer a Smartphone with fewer sensors like GPS and whatnot? Absolutely, but it's impractical.
If you two think that it's totally fine to put a web connected camera in your house and that nothing will ever come of it then be my fucking guest, but that's not the type of world I want to live in, I won't buy it, and it'll give a lot of other people pause as well. Unless you live in a cave or are retired you need a smartphone at this point in history. No one needs motion controls with a camera on an ATV, and I hope they never will. I shouldn't have to tolerate a camera and or microphone pointed at me to get the online streaming video services that I want on a STB.
The deal with the TV is that I watch it, it doesn't watch me back. That's creepy and way open to abuse. Not going to happen for X-Box Kinect, anything Google makes or has access to, and not going to happen for even Apple who I would tend to trust more than the others. To believe otherwise is either just drinking the koolaid or pollyannish. That's all I have to say on the matter.
