"Shhh ... not around the TV!

Samsung's privacy policy for its voice-recognizing smart televisions warns users not to discuss sensitive information around their devices because it could be transmitted to a third party.

"Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party through your use of Voice Recognition," the company's privacy policy said.

Parker Higgins, an activist with the nonprofit Electronic Frontier Foundation, pointed out what he said were similarities between George Orwell's dystopian novel "1984" and Samsung's smart TVs.

technology is basically double-edged sword

the more "smart" devices become, the more features they get, but at the same time create more attack vectors for malicious hackers

Add this to the mix..."Darpa Is Developing a Search Engine for the Dark Web"

"A new search engine being developed by Darpa aims to shine a light on the dark web and uncover patterns and relationships in online data to help law enforcement and others track illegal activity.

The project, dubbed Memex, has been in the works for a year and is being developed by 17 different contractor teams who are working with the military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Google and Bing, with search results influenced by popularity and ranking, are only able to capture approximately five percent of the internet. The goal of Memex is to build a better map of more internet content."
