Funny thing about this one is that we may already have the Eye of Sauron going into place. The new X-Box One gaming console being put out by Microsoft has an HD infrared camera with a microphone attached to it in the form of Kinect 2.0 that must always be connected, can’t be completely turned off so long as the X-box is on, and must phone home at least once every 24 hours. Microsoft, of course, is one of the companies allegedly involved in PRISM. If you weren’t put out by the privacy concerns of the thing before, imagine the Feds having direct access to the server that checks in with the X-Box in your living room or bedroom.
The Wii U’s looking a lot better now…
In other news, this hopefully marks our return to regular comics, with an expected posting schedule going back to Tuesday and Thursday since MWFS was a bit much. We’re pacing ourselves.
