Is really frightening to think that a measly baby monitor can be hacked, whats stopping hackers from hacking your kinect? Are you willing to give up your privacy just to get the xbox one? What about the government? What's stopping them from monitoring you from your everyday activities?

MS has a bit more security in place than some baby monitor (and by a bit I mean a freakin' ton).

I mean, "hacking" of the current kinect happens pretty regularly at Universities where they use them for research. I wouldn't exactly call it hacking, though. More like, "repurposing." But I don't think it's likely the XB1 kinect will be hacked unless the hacker enters your home and tempers with your equipment.

Not having an editing feature combined with apple spellcheck is not a good combination.

I guess I should stop using my laptop and sell my Iphone since they both have cameras on them.

The Government already spies on you and knows more about you than you expect.
