I’m skeptical of these "Smart Screens". I’m downright cynical of one made by Facebook.

Facebook will start selling the Portal in November, with the smaller model selling for $199 and the Portal Plus selling for $349. Facebook will also be offering $100 off if you buy two at a time, and it seems to be hoping people will pick up a pair of Portals, then hand one to a relative they want to stay in touch with. Like much about the product, it’s not a bad idea — so long as you’re okay with it all being tied back to Facebook.

There's simply no way I'd ever want a Facebook-controlled camera in my house. Hell no

I love the wacky hardware design of the Portal Plus, but there is no way I’m putting a Facebook camera in my home
