The spy in your living room

Author: JT Smith

UK Guardian: "

Touted as a possible replacement for both PC and analogue
television, the set-top box that is slowly finding a place in UK
homes might look harmless enough. But once you are safely
tucked up in bed, the thing switches itself back on, goes online,
dials up corporate HQ and reports back every programme you
watched and every online purchase made that day."
