I think the government runs amuck with a lot of unnecessary legislation however the government is in place to protect us from invasion of privacy, which this technology is. It should be banned. If it is allowed to be added to equipment there will be hackers and criminals that will figure out how to turn it on secretly. Also, Microsoft offers a turn off option. Most of our technically less advanced citizens such as the elderly, etc. will not be aware that there is something that they have to turn off. I sure hope that none of my equipment has this technology. Gonna have to look into it more.
