After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Please do unplug it. I want to hear some kind of awesome number in the future like 30% of all xboxone users disconnect the kinect.

Seriously?
After you found out that it's always connected to the internet, you left the high resolution spy camera on in your living room?

Yeah the system works fine without Kinect plugged in, but it makes Snap a worthless feature.

The entire fact that it was going to be mandatory should be reason enough to disconnect it. Seriously cameras for video gaming is just stupid in the first place.

They may not be able to spy on you now legally, but the whole idea of having a connected camera in your house with a microphone that, really you could be spied on with is just crazy.

Ask me if i have a cellphone. The government can activate your damn cell phone to listen in on you even if the thing is turned off. What says they cant do it to your kinect.

Also dont say "well if you got nothing to hide" because if you think that. well then i guess you deserve the impending wrath that follows giving up all your freedoms.
