    For general interest and discussion:

    Telescreens ... are tv and security camera -like devices used ...to keep ...subjects under constant surveillance.

    ...the proles (lower-class) are not typically monitored as they are unimportant... can turn off his telescreen ..the screen still functioned as a listening surveillance device, as after Winston and Julia are taken into the Ministry of Love, their recorded audio conversation with the telescreen "off" is played back

    ...Telescreens do not have night visison technology... This is compensated by the fact that telescreens are incredibly sensitive, and they are said to pick up a heartbeat. As Winston describes, "...even a back can be revealing..."

    ...are also the equivalent of televisions, regularly broadcasting false new reports ...Much of the telescreen programs are given in MS speak.

    Its just an entertainment console.
    Yes, nothing could compromise it to spy on you...I'm sure of it. Safeguards must be in place. I just am a bit leary of a device that is always there listening for commands.

    Blocking used games. Despicable. I believe Sony are at it as well.

    I'm sure big time hackers are so excited about this. And soon, you will see a true to life SIM City everywhere. People watching other people.

    And yet you earlier said you wanted Google Glass.

    Glass isn't creepy at all.

    I'm sure if Apple made it you'd think it was great.

    It looks like it'll be a fantastic console. Microsoft have a better strategy than Sony. The Xbox 360 is evidence of that.

    I'm hoping the Xbox One might fix TV. Heaven knows it needs it.
