Last night’s edition of Comedy Central’s fake news program had cranky commentator Lewis Black ranting about new and upcoming technology. Along with Google Glass, Black takes aim at the Xbox One and its always-watching/listening Kinect camera. It’s pretty funny stuff. (Except that Black doesn’t mention that you’ll have a bit of control over what the upgraded Kinect is able to do.)
Used games, dgaf. Always online? A bitter pill but swallowable. Kinect monitoring me every time I turn on my tv? Fuuuuuuck that. Even if you forget about the NSA, its still creepy as shit, but toss in the fact that this will for sure end up part of PRISM and yeah, no, no way. George Orwell warned me of this bullshit decades ago.
