Trent Strader filed a 27-page class action complaint at the US District Court in Indianapolis where he alleges his smart television has been monitoring his viewing habits.

I prefer my friends smart & my technology stupid, not the other way around.

How about we all get in on a class action suit against all cell phone companies for spying & collecting data on all of us 24/7?   Maybe we can at least get some hush settlement money out of it until they come out with the intravenous versions of iPhone that go directly into everyone's neural pathways.
