cant you just turn the camera around or put a blanket over it.
still a mic though
and theres the chance that it might say something like “error kinect camera cannot function when obscured”
Videogame consoles are not supposed to spy on you.
Videogame consoles are not supposed to potentially rat you out to the government.
Videogame consoles are not supposed to arbitrarily decide who sees what’s on the screen and what’s not.
I have never told anyone not to buy a videogame console, but in this case, knowing what I know about the Xbox One, I am seriously imploring people not to buy this machine. The console will not be consumer-friendly, and between the above and an always-on internet connection, how do you know your hobby isn’t siphoning personal information to…well, who knows who?
Suffice it to say, the Xbox 360 will be my last Microsoft console. I don’t care how many more Halo games get churned out.
Adding this here from my videogame blog because it’s too important, and the potential for Microsoft to spy on us, then report findings to the government if asked…yeah, no.
Spread the word!
If you haven’t read George Orwell’s “1984”, do so.
So another reason for the Xbox One to never ever be used as anything more than a bookend?
This doesn’t even mention the bullshittery of their policy that if you get banned from Xbox Live you also lose the licenses to all of your games, meaning you can’t even play them in single-player mode.
Or the bit where they’re making people sign away their rights to class-action suits to pre-order the thing, which is downright chilling.
And it keeps getting worse!
This is why I have a PS3, and a computer with an emulator. Be warned, my followers. This is NOT the system to get.

This has been in my ask for a while now, and honestly? I’ve been keeping it there, just to look at it every time I check my Tumblr.
My dear, sweet anon, you probably have no idea what is going on in my personal life, but your comment could not have come at a better time. As someone who hates burdening the people they know with their own issues, I have been battling with a lot of self-loathing and unhappiness about my appearance and skillset in silence. You were an unexpected ray of hope and courage, one that helped me open up to people that care about me.
Wherever and whoever you are, beautiful, kind anon, I wish you all the happiness in the world, because that is what you have given to me, and it is the least you deserve in return.
Greetings, everyone! This is an MLP and Minecraft blog, featuring some of my own characters. (Check them out in the links below!) Occasionally you will get fandom rants for Once Upon a Time, the Avengers, or whatever I'm currently spazzing about the most, but I really do try to keep those to a minimum. I have a livestream at: http://www.livestream.com/askcallie
I may or may not be on, but feel free to check in. (Assuming my internet doesn't crash. -___-")
Updates are sporatic at best, and usually revolve around school.
Thank you for taking time to check out my blog!
