After making sure certain information is censored on behalf of the political establishment, Google will make sure you're watched accordingly.
This is raising concerns about privacy and human rights. Censorship has crossed the line long ago along with mass surveillance, but humans continue to all but demand more control over their lives. This latest "smart-home" device from Mountain View comes equipped with a constantly-scanning facial-recognition-enabled camera that can't be shut off, only 'disabled' with a switch that also (supposedly) deactivates the microphone, according to a report by RT. Just as the device is constantly listening for its "wake word," it is prepared to leap into action at the sight of its owner's visage.
The Nest Hub, as its name suggests, serves as a "hub" for other internet-of-things devices like thermostats, surveillance cameras, and doorbells – which also come equipped with facial recognition, in case the user misses that feeling of being constantly spied on when they finally come home after a long day of surveillance outside. It also uploads video from phone calls and camera footage accessed remotely into the cloud and provides a window into your home for anyone with access to your Google or Nest account. –RT
