Default Microwaves Turn Into Cameras

When I seen an article about an interview about Kellyanne Conway and she thinks that microwaves can turn into cameras that can watch us


Kellyanne Conway: We Can be Watched by 'Microwaves That Turn Into Cameras'

No, Kellyanne, microwaves cannot turn into cameras

Wow talk about being paranoid...it's true that Samsung TV's can eavesdrop on your conversations. With today's technology the NSA can spy on anyone. The Government has been spying on us since 1947.

Lucky for us, we ate the government.

Sounds ridiculous, but there is merit to what she's saying. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan, or politically biased one way or the other so could give a s**t about Kelly Con, but as ludicrous as it sounds, she's not [completely] making that up.

Almost every post-Y2K TV can
Your phone can
Smart Microwaves can
Smart Fridges can
Some smart light bulbs can be hacked, used as web servers
Baby monitors
Alarm clocks
...
..

If it plugs into power (and was manufactured after ~2000), it's a fairly safe bet anymore that someone can get into it.

I personally like cameras recording what I see on the streets. It helps support the truth in court and who doesn't want truth in the legal system?
Want privacy? Unplug and close the curtains. Never loose sight of the fact that your privacy is your responsibility to achieve, not someone else's responsibility to give you.

I agree. If you don't have anything illegal to hide then ultimately, why worry?

Because, if you're doing something legal, but viewed by some as immoral, that evidence can be used against you in the court of public opinion.

Like, idk, political dissidents... think communism back in the 50s. it wasn't illegal, but if your employer found out, you'd never be able to get work again...

Everyone has something to hide. Period.

Something legal now could become illegal in the future. Now there's record of that activity and someone can retroactively see your wrongdoing.

I also imagine you don't want your browsing history made public...

We all have something to hide. Everyone has something they want to stay private and that ability is slowly being removed.

It wouldn't be pleasant, but it would hardly be incriminating...
