"Ledbetter revealed that at one point, Redmond's hardware design team was considering hiding the second-generation Kinect's optical and sound sensors behind a "wall of glass," perhaps to make their omnipresent motion and noise monitoring less ominous, but wound up with a more open design intended to "make it like part of the family."

KINECT 2.0 part of the "family"!?!? Yeah if that family member sells information about your every action for money and facilitates spying by the NSA.

I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

You're more than welcome to opt-out of the more aggressive advertisement offerings, Laylow.
Let us not forget that the ToU on next-gen consoles are strikingly similar!

Also, did you know that the US Government threatened MS with legal action if they did not cooperate? Do you really think they were dumb enough to tell them "naw, f off"? Look what happened to the Qwest CEO. Think for yourself man, actually look into these things. Don't just mimic what everyone says.

So you're confirming what I said and for most people, that isn't considered "member of the family" it's an insult to our intelligence to try and present the KINECT 2.0 that way. Aren't you insulted by that yourself khard?
