I've seen lots of people complain about how the Kinect camera is going to "spy" on you. I don't understand what everyone is worried about, as long as you're not doing criminal activities, why should you even be worried? Are you worried that they're going to upload pictures of you guys playing CoD in your boxers with your hands covered in Cheetos dust? I don't think they are going to even care if you're doing weed in front of it. You do know millions of people will be on the Xbox right? Even if they could, they aren't going to shift through every single one to know the details of what color your carpet is. People coincidentally forget that laptops have had wireless webcams stuck in them for years, and your phones itself have GPS functions and what-not.

Why is everyone so paranoid?

This is where your credibility is shot.

Not all phones have GPS. Not all Laptops have a webcam.

Just wait and somebody will say that they put a tape in front of their laptop cam, opened it and removed the camera physically and removed the driver in Windows, how they got no cellphone, never use Google and only use Linux.

Right, except that millions of them do, all over the world. Much more than the amount than the Kinects there are.

For every xb1 console made there's 10 government agents dedicated to watching the feed from that kinect around the clock.
