Ari, I thought it interesting that Google looked at Nest as a trojan horse into one's home... don't they have that with the Android OS already?
Gizmodo engages in wild speculation about what other data they might be gathering..
I would like to think that I set the high-water mark around here for outlandish speculation, and this pales in comparison I must say. Why? Because of the multitude of sensors embedded in thr device that have latent capabilities. Ones that could be activated remotely, thru an update. That's why this is a different form of trojan than a netbook or embedded linux device, which as Keefe implies, has probably already taken hold in most homes.
Ari, if you accidentally discover a microphone in your toaster, wouldn't it be fair to speculate on its current purpose is and what its future use could be, even if you were assured by the spokesperson from Tasty Toaster that the microphone was not being used to record conversations?
