Is Xbox One the ‘future of PRISM’?

Xbox One Kinect Privacy

Microsoft’s Xbox One is “an ‘always-on’ Xbox tracking you with the Kinect ‘eye,’ beaming info back to some Microsoft cloud which, as we now know, is tapped by the government,” PolicyMic’s Chris Miles wrote. He even went as far as to call the console “the future of PRISM.”  Microsoft’s next-generation Kinect solution features far more enhanced monitoring capabilities than the original Kinect sensor it replaces. The device will be able to recognize individual users and it will record and transmit data on their usage back to Microsoft’s servers.

About Indian Rocks Bridge

We have a HUGE responsibility to protect our children and their futures. Our Gulf of Mexico has nearly been destroyed by the Deep-water Horizon catastrophe and many families here will never recover. Paradise lost, so it goes. I’m doing my best to apolitically educate anyone that cares about the impact on our environment by technology and “for-profit” progress. We forget, too frequently that we SHARE this planet with millions of other life-forms and as the most “powerful” species, we must be more cognizant of our greed versus the well-being of our planet. Thanks again for visiting and please check back often. -Gregg indianrocksbridge@yahoo.com
