Samsung explains why its smart TV isn’t actually stalking you

We saw a glimpse of a dystopian future last week when Samsung’s smart TV policy went viral, altering consumers that any personal information spoken out loud within range of the television might be captured and transmitted to third parties. This caused quite a stir, especially when comparisons were drawn to a specific passage from George Orwell’s “1984.”
