Why xbox, WHY?

A simple question. WHY does the kinect have to be on 24/7?
What good reason is there for that if not to see what is going on?
It all smells bad to me, very bad.

Hysteria. Nobody has actually given this much thought. Didn't take long for people to remember "1984" and bring up conspiracy theories.

This.


Honestly it's kinda like star trek's computer. You don't see them freaking out because their computer is always listening for their commands.

Because it does. Now shut up and take it in the ass and be the good corporate shill Microsoft expects you to be.

My question is: Why are some people so apparently blind of the issues with this.

are they REALLY so obsessed with the branding that they will happily ignore MAJOR flaws and throw away their rights so cheaply?

I don't care about it being on 24/7 other than it's just one more piece of hardware that can break.

It's not necessarily paranoia. I just don't understand the reasoning for it. Other than gathering information. So until microsoft gives another reason, it's left up to us to decide what its for.
