I don't have any need for a camera on my TV but I'm sure it's only a matter of time before they all have one.
lol. It will be a mandate by the FCC.. After all, it is for our safety! lol.

In fact, later as you move around the tv, the tv follows you so that you don't miss anything!

until I want to use it my cam and mike stay off and I’ll never buy a TV with a cam unless the day comes that all TV’s have them then I’ll get a projector instead .

Wow, that is some scary stuff. Eventually camera will be a standard "feature" I am sure but even then, I would keep the camera off or have some black electronic tape over the camera! lol.. Same with the Kinet and/or any other camera type device.

I used to think my Mom was crazy when she said to unplug the Tv, because "someone can probably watch you". Never thought she could be right!
