Does anyone still believe that your "smart" devices are anything other than spy devices?


Telescreens are devices that operate as televisions, security cameras, and microphones.
They are featured in George Orwell's dystopian 1949 novel Nineteen Eighty-Four as well as all film adaptations of the novel. In the novel and its adaptations, telescreens are used by the ruling Party in the totalitarian fictional State of Oceania to keep its subjects under constant surveillance, thus eliminating the chance of secret conspiracies against Oceania.

All members of the Inner Party and Outer Party (middle-class) have telescreens in their homes, but the proles (lower-class) are not (they are now)typically monitored as they are unimportant(now extremely important) to the Party. As later explained in Emmanuel Goldstein's book of which Smith reads some excerpts, the Party does not feel threatened by the Proles, assuming that they would never rebel on their own, and therefore does not find a need to monitor their daily lives.

The character O'Brien claims that he, as a member of the Inner Party, can turn off his telescreen (although etiquette dictates only for half an hour at a time). While the programmes could no longer be seen or heard, the screen still functioned as a surveillance device, as after Winston is taken into the Ministry of Love, the audio of his meeting with O'Brien with the telescreen "off" is played back to Winston.  So much for the 5th Amendment...

The screens are monitored by the Thought Police. However, it is not clear how many screens are monitored at once (ALL of them), or what the precise criteria (ALL criteria) for monitoring a given screen are (although it is seen that during an exercise programme that Winston takes part in every morning, the instructor can see him, meaning telescreens are possibly an early variant of videophones). Telescreen cameras do (they do now) not have night vision technology, thus, they cannot (CAN)monitor in the dark. This is compensated by the fact that their microphones are incredibly sensitive, and they are said to pick up a heartbeat. As Winston describes, "... even a back can be revealing ..."[1] Bio identifying Face, gait, retina, etc..

In addition to being surveillance devices, telescreens (Smart devices) are also televisions (hence the name). They broadcast propaganda about Oceania's military victories, economic production figures, spirited renditions of the national anthem to heighten patriotism, and Two Minutes Hate, which is a two-minute film of Emmanuel Goldstein's wishes for freedom of speech and press, which the citizens have been trained to disagree with through doublethink. Many of the telescreen programmes are transmitted in Newspeak.

Any bells going off?

Think for yourself

One of the most effective techniques that public health officials have used during outbreaks is called contact tracing. Through this approach, public health officials contact, test, treat and advise people who may have been exposed to an affected person. One new element of contact tracing is Exposure Notifications: using privacy-preserving digital technology to tell someone they may have been exposed to the virus. Exposure Notification has the specific goal of rapid notification, which is especially important to slowing the spread of the disease with a virus that can be spread asymptomatically.

To help, Apple and Google cooperated to build Exposure Notifications technology that will enable apps created by public health agencies to work more accurately, reliably and effectively across both Android phones and iPhones. Over the last several weeks, our two companies have worked together, reaching out to public health officials scientists, privacy groups and government leaders all over the world to get their input and guidance.

Starting today, our Exposure Notifications technology is available to public health agencies on both iOS and Android. What we’ve built is not an app — rather public health agencies will incorporate the API into their own apps that people install. Our technology is designed to make these apps work better. Each user gets to decide whether or not to opt-in to Exposure Notifications; the system does not collect or use location from the device; and if a person is diagnosed with COVID-19, it is up to them whether or not to report that in the public health app. User adoption is key to success and we believe that these strong privacy protections are also the best way to encourage use of these apps.

Today, this technology is in the hands of public health agencies across the world who will take the lead and we will continue to support their efforts.

Too late for me.
I updated several of phones. All automatic updates were turned off BUT I went ahead
and did the updates.
My main concern has always been battery time. When updating, the major improvements
go towards their latest and greatest models. Older models get the crumbs left over. Mine was a
300 MB update.
I do NOT wear a mask.
I do NOT have facial recognition on the phones. Nor do I want it. With front camera, they probably
do it anyway without our permission or knowledge.

Welcome to the voluntary electronic prison, boys and girls.

I have a samsung, they updated my phone and now I can't go online unless I agree to Samsung's TOS. Samsung is not my internet provider, I simply bought the device. I refuse to accept bc I read the TOS. Basically "get on your knees bitch, we own you"
So I cancelled all data and let my internet provider know why.
When life knocks you flat on your face roll over and look at the stars.
