Xbox One, always watching, always listening

That camera... in your room

That camera always staring... whether you're watching TV, a streaming service, browsing the web or gaming

Its mic, always listening, even on standby.

It's so sensitive it can even recognise your heartbeats

It wasn't that long that Microsoft spoke of the opportunity to pass data to advertiser about what you're wearing, your home's interior, how you look etc. Even if they don't go as far as that there's sure to be all sorts of algorithms sweeping through analytics and we all know how much Microsoft hate for machines to read things, even though they do it themselves anyway.

Anyway, sleep well, try not to think of its unblinking eye, always staring, always listening.
