"The Internet of Things" Will Allow the NSA and FBI to Better Spy on You

So sayeth Jimmy the Perjurer, the chief of the American spies:
“In the future, intelligence services might use the [internet of things] for identification, surveillance, monitoring, location tracking, and targeting for recruitment, or to gain access to networks or user credentials,” Clapper said.
Smart TVx, webcams, hell, smart fridges and thermostats-- all could be used by the spooks to watch you and yes, they're working on doing that. If your car has OnStar or any of that crap, they want to be able to tap into that.

Find the camera and microphone of your smart TV and blank them off. Or go to a thrift store and buy an old CRT TV set. Don't choose to let the spies into your home.
