Microsoft will "aggressively challenge" any government attempt to spy through Kinect


Quote:
Microsoft's been in the news a fair bit lately on the strength of its supposed collaboration with the US National Security Agency - a Guardian report alleges that the latter is able to gather user data via Skype, Outlook and Hotmail with Microsoft's consent. The company has now released a formal statement on the matter, denying much of the report and calling on the US government to allow it "to share publicly more complete information about how we handle national security requests for customer information".

Microsoft has also rejected claims that it will allow the NSA to gather data via the Xbox One's Kinect sensor, which is required for the console to run. "Absent a new law, we don't believe the government has the legal authority to compel us or any other company that makes products with cameras and microphones to start collecting voice and video data," reads a comment mailed to the Verge. "And we'd aggressively challenge in court any attempts to try and force us to do so."

MS didn't say they wouldn't spy on us.... Only that they won't be forced to.

So they are still free to spy on customers for private organisations and companies.

Well they brought all the controversy upon themselves with Kinect. It would be scary that Government could monitor everything we do on gaming consoles, usually they use the pretense that it is for our own safety to prevent terrorists from communicating.

The problem for Microsoft is that there's a very easy way to ensure that the Kinect can never be used to spy on anyone concerned about it. That, and Microsoft's word doesn't count for very much right now.

I can't help but feel Microsoft would've been better served to avoid mentioning specific products when addressing the NSA question.

This but all affirms that Microsoft can spy on you via voice & video on the Kinect if it wanted to... and it will "begrudgingly lol" do it if legally obliged to.

Yeah don't know that "confirming" it CAN spy on you is the greatest move ever.

It is their plan to do exactly that. They want to watch you so they can give you the best "experience".

"During the Super Bowl, you're watching TV, some great ads pop up," Lyn Watts, a Microsoft manager, said during a presentation at the PII conference here this afternoon. "You say something like, 'Xbox share,' it'll share automatically, on Facebook or Twitter, whatever you like. Advertisers are really impressed by this."
I don't want my friends spamming me with advertisements... And if it's something worth seeing, I've probably already seen it on youtube.

And if a retailer decided to take that kind of data, assemble it into a database of customers' photos, and use face recognition to detect when they entered a physical store?
"It says, 'Jane, welcome back, we haven't seen you in a couple of weeks, gosh, have you lost 10 pounds? And are you now a size six?'" Watts said.
What if someone gained 10 pounds. "Here is an advertisement for losing weight"

Yeah. I'm not really getting the logic behind this. About the only time I can imagine anybody bothering to share ads like that would be say, during the superbowl, or maybe if it's the trailer for a particular movie. Otherwise? who the hell wants to be spammed by regular ads?

The only ads one would share are the rare ones. If it is on American TV, it isn't rare.

Looks like they are yielding very hard to the demands of the consumers. Though the prices are not confirmed yet however. I maybe buy it next summer, though I suspect that Sony is watching the competition very closely and may even have different versions of the PS4 with less memory equaling the price.

If xbox can lower the price by 50 bucks by having a smaller HDD, Sony can do the same if they wanted to. Now the only question is if they want to, because if they already won the console war by then they might just milk their PS4 at full price.

And its interesting now that you can actually turn the damn Kinect off. Now my chances of buying the XB1 went from aboslute zero to a couple hundredths of a percent up.
