One of the biggest and most influential corporations in the world can spy on you?

Why would they do this? Our society is under enough surveillance. Should I just unplug it when I'm done?

No, you should plug the kinect in and then cut the cord with a knife. The Xbox will think it's plugged in, but the camera can't send any data to the Xbox.

I suspect Microsoft will be sued before the first year. It is important that affected citizens get involved in this fight. Microsoft should have known better! I encouraging everyone whose rights are violated by Microsoft to join the class action lawsuit in due course.

So as you read the comments know that the front line of this battle is moving to a courtroom soon!

Meanwhile you can use the contact button on the bottom of the link below and send a correspondence to Jeff Rossen, Josh Davis and Robert Powell who wrote the article Webcam hackers can spy on you in secret. If you like to do the same I applaud you. I'm personally goint to follow up on my correspondence and the matter.

Not an option. The system NEEDS to phone home at least every 24 hours or your shut down.

The best option is to not purchase an Xbox One.

Been disputed. It's apparently not 24 hours. It will HAVE on occasion they are not saying how often.
Of course Microsoft are being idiots with their PR and constantly giving different versions of the story,
